Technically a processed grain, oats maintain their nutrient value through the refining process because they don't lose their bran or germ like many other grains. Oats are a good source of soluble fiber which is known to help reduce cholesterol levels. This grain is also high in minerals such as manganese, molybdenum, copper and phosphorus.
