The oat plant (Avena sativa L.) is an annual plant that belongs to the Gramineae family. Its stem can grow up to 105 cm tall, its flat leaves are veiny and rough, and its flowers are grouped into pairs in two small ears around 2 cm long (1, 2).
Oat seeds, which are brown in colour, have for centuries been an essential food for much of humankind (1). The sixth most produced cereal in the world, it is consumed as flakes, bran or flour, as ingredients in different recipes and breakfast cereals (3).
It is believed that the oat plant is native to Sicily, where it grows wild. In the northern hemisphere, oats have been grown and used as food since the Iron Age (1,2).
Ancient Greek and Roman texts mention oats, although never as food. The Germanic peoples were the first to consume it (2).
The Greek physician Dioscorides (40-90 AD) comments on how “porridge made from oats restrict the belly” and Spanish physician Laguna (1499-1559) talked about its application on the skin (2). Traditionally, oatmeal dressings were used to combat leprosy (1).Nowadays its crops cover large areas of cereal-producing plains (1, 2). But oats have also been used in personal hygiene and beauty products (creams, soaps, ointments etc.)
COMPOSITION AND BENEFITS
Oats are widely used for their sedative, mineral and vitamin-rich properties (4).
Oat seeds are one of the cereals with the highest iron (0.8%) and protein contents (11%, three times more than wheat, although less than starch) (3, 5). They contain other mineral salts (manganese and zinc), vitamins (A, B1, B2, E and D) and several active principles, such as alkaloids (gramine, trigonelline etc.), saponins (avenacosides), flavones, tocopherols and lecithin (4,5).
Its avenanthramides, bioavailable compounds, have anti-inflammatory, anti-atherogenic and antioxidant properties (6, 7).
Numerous clinical trials have demonstrated the cardioprotective properties of oat products (bran, semolina and flour), whose soluble fibre, especially beta-gluten, reduces levels of ‘bad cholesterol’ (LDL) without modifying levels of ‘good cholesterol’ (HDL) (8, 9).
In addition, as a good source of insoluble fibre, oats aid intestinal function (9).
Oat polyphenols have anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative and anti-itch activity, possible additional protection against heart disease, colon cancer and skin irritation (6).
Oats are also used in cosmetics in case of eczema, seborrhoea, urticaria, dermatitis and other skin irritations due to their anti-inflammatory and nutritive properties (5).
