There is nothing quite like a warm bowl of homemade oatmeal. It is filling and provides you with the fiber needed for improved health. The long-time oatmeal standard from Quaker Oats is not only used for breakfast, but can be used in many different types of recipes including cookies and breads.

Quaker Oats is made from 100% all-natural whole-grain oats. This is the only ingredient. Whole grain oats supply the body with soluble fiber, and soluble fiber helps regulate the body’s blood cholesterol levels.


Quaker Oats cereal is sodium-free. The link between high sodium intake and increased blood pressure has led Americans to be careful of and limit their sodium intake. The ideal amount of sodium in the diet equals less than a teaspoon per day. Most women ingest one and a half times the recommended amount, while men intake almost twice as much. Quaker Oats can help lower sodium intake when eaten regularly.

Soluble Fiber

One serving of Quaker Oats provides 2 grams of soluble fiber. The risk of heart disease is reduced if you consume 3 grams of soluble fiber from oatmeal per day.
