Information About Oat Bran

Oat bran finds a wide range of applications in the food and beverage manufacturing industry due to its nutritional benefits and versatility. Oat bran is often used in baking products like bread, muffins, and cookies, and also granola bars, cereals, snack foods, breakfast foods, beverages such as smoothies, shakes, and nutritional drinks. It can also be used as a binder in processed meats.

Oat bran is formulated by processing the outer layer of the oat groat, which is the whole grain of the oat. The bran is the fibrous outer husk that protects the inner grain. The oat groats are milled to break them down into smaller pieces, and then they undergo a separation process that separates the oat bran from the oat flour.

Appearance: Oat bran is typically a small, pale tan or light brown flake with an irregular shape. They contain a mild, nutty yet slightly sweet flavor and has a sweet aroma.

Taste: Oat bran has a mild, nutty flavor. It is not as strong as whole oats and blends well with various dishes. The taste is often described as wholesome and slightly sweet.

Particle size: Generally comes in flakes, but is variable.
