Its gluten free
and has a lower GI/ insulin response so its better for diabetics in this case

    Sounds delicious I'm going to make a bowl now



    The only reason I think he put it in the avoid list is due to the fat content in oats are omega 6 based?
  • Oats have a lot of Glutamate in them. And that's bad m'kay. 


  • what about organic oats that have simply that ingredient in it? that kind doesn't have Glutamate rightt?

    Glutamate is a substance that occurs naturally in oats, it's not added (whether organic or not). 


     


    Gluten breaks down into glutamate (and other stuff) in the gut. 


    It's not quite the same as MSG (monosodium glutamate), but 'free' glutamate is an excitotoxin. This is real real bad m'kay.

    i'll try again


    Oats contain glutamate. 


    Glutamate is a excitotoxin and a neurotoxin.

    Gluten is a protein (a composite of amino acids). Glutamate is one of these amino acids. In the small-intestine gluten gets broken down into Glutamate (plus gluten exorphins and other bad stuff). 


    So whether you eat oats (no gluten) or wheat (high-gluten), you are flooding your system with glutamate.

    ok, ok you are right oats do have glutamate :( edit: it is a hard thing to find out so far i have only found 1 guy who wrote an article saying that they have them, other sites i am finding say the danger is with contamination with other products such as wheat. edit2: what about quinoa would this be a good alternative or no, everything i have read says its good so im interested what people think.,.


  • I think if you really like it moderation is the key, but if in the quest for ultimate nutrition, there are better carb choices.


    fair, fair, thank you sir

    Glutamate is a neurotransmitter, and important for the brain:

    While too much glutamate can indeed increase excitotoxicity, avoiding it at all cost is not necessary.  


     


    By the way, racetams increase glutamate release in the brain and I read some people using them as part of their brain hacking regimen.  Some consider supplementing with glutamate to avoid depletion.

    So how many grams of oats are okay for this glutamate crap (disregarding ketogenic state)?


    100g of oats = ~60g of carbs btw

    My point is its really not that much. You will probably get more in your diet even if you are strict
