Why Is Demand For Oats Soaring?

It’s a well known fact that most people are becoming more health-conscious, and include oats in their diets. The benefits range from feeling to looking great indeed. You just never know the importance of good health until you don’t have it, then you begin to value it more and want it back. Haven’t we all been there? Taking care of our bodies is too important, it’s all we really have, we don’t get to live in two bodies in our life-times – one body is all we get.

Some of you may be aware of Royal Oats, my range of delicious oat products that include everything from breakfast cereals, to oat flour to fufu flour, which I launched recently, to share my not so secret love for oats, one of the main foods I credit my health and weight loss to. I will be sharing more about the delicious oat products with you soon. Also look out for my Royal Oats giveaways!

After launching my oat products, I continue to notice more and more articles about the increasing demand for food products containing oats and the declining global oat production. According to AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds, the cereals and oilseeds division of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) in the UK, around 10 countries account for 85% of the world’s oat trade at the moment.

I must admit that I was pleased to find that the 10 included the UK. I was beginning to wonder whether we’d all be starved from our delicious and ever-so-filling oats. The oats used in Royal Oats are grown in British farms, something that mattered a lot to me when I embarked on the journey to share my love for oats with everyone. I wanted to create a product that I would enjoy with my family, and share with the rest of the world.

With this changing trend, I can only hope that demand does not out-weigh production so much that it will affect consumers.
