    The benefits of bran bread

    Since today we are going to prepare bran bread in bread maker, it makes sense to say a few words about its healthy features. We will use oatmeal, extremely beneficial brans. They have a unique structure and are able to improve the human body if to consume them regularly. So, wheat bread with bran, which we’re going to prepare now is just what we needed.

    Oat bran is a byproduct consisting of parts of the grain that are removed during special process in order to obtain good quality flour. Oats are known to the human beings since prehistoric times. It is believed that his birthplace is the territory of Mongolia and China. We began to cultivate oats approximately fourteen centuries ago, and now it’s one of the most important grains.

    At the end of the twentieth century, scientists have noticed that the bran of oats has most of the biologically active components while in flour almost nothing remains. Hippocrates was aware of the valuable properties of bran. The founder of ancient medicine advised them to normalize the activity of the intestines and stomach cleansing. However, the bran bread recipe which HozOboz offers you today, had not yet been invented.

    Oat bran's major advantage is that the fiber portion is represented in a special, easily soluble form. And it is a significant difference from wheat bran, rye and other grains.  Rough fiber contained in oat bran, being not digested, are like brush of the intestinal tract, cleaning and doing detoxification. Fiber promotes intestinal microflora, which synthesizes vitamin B which is responsible for brain activity, energy metabolism, full operation of the immune and nervous systems, skin condition. By the way, deficiency of vitamins Group B is a frequent phenomenon, so oat bran must necessarily be present in our diet.

    Add to this a large number of proteins with an exceptional collection of amino acids. For example, lysine, which is necessary for the prevention of osteoporosis, atherosclerosis, and essential for the growth of bone and connective tissue, the correct functioning of the immune system, production of enzymes collagen, antibodies and hormones. If you will quickly get tired and feel weakness, it is likely to indicate a lack of lysine in the body. That’s all for now, so let’s just start cooking !
