When it comes to oatmeal it has long been known for its heart-healthy benefits. It was in 1995 when the FDA officially approved a heart-health claim from The Quaker Oats Company. Actually, this was the first food-based health claim approved by the FDA to be marketed on a product’s box.
Now, 23 years later, that Quaker Oats and several other foods made from whole oats have the Heart Healthy stamp of approval by the FDA. These heart-healthy benefits come about due to oatmeal’s capacity to deliver on high-fiber, low-sodium, and low-fat.
