Eating a bowl of instant oatmeal for breakfast could help manage hunger better, a new research has found.
The statistically significant results established that instant oatmeal enhanced satiety, feelings of fullness and reduced the desire to eat more than a RTE, oat-based cereal.
Frank Greenway, M.D. said that instant oatmeal is more effective at suppressing appetite compared to the cold cereal, even with a smaller serving size and less calories than previously investigated.
Marianne O'Shea, PhD, PepsiCo R and D Nutrition revealed that something as simple as a single-serving of instant oatmeal and milk has the potential to help keep hunger at bay from breakfast until lunch.
The study also supports the mission at the Quaker Oats Center of Excellence of investigating the ways that oats can improve our health and well-being, she added.
The study is published in the Nutrition Journal.
