Oat products contains Beta glucan properties. As stated in the journal J Nutr Metab*

Beta glucan (β-glucan) is a soluble fiber readily available from oat and barley grains that has been gaining interest due to its multiple functional and bioactive properties. Its beneficial role in insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and obesity is being continuously documented (…). Consequently, the applicability of β-glucan as a food ingredient is being widely considered with the dual purposes of increasing the fiber content of food products and enhancing their health properties.

Quinoa is a seed that is prepared and consumed like a cereal. Cooked quinoa is mostly composed by insoluble fibers (80-90%), such as cellulose

Insoluble fibers have been associated with reduced risk of diabetes**

Cooked quinoa consists of water (71.6%), carbohydrates (21.3%), protein (4.4%) and fat (1.92%).

Moreover, some of the insoluble fiber may be fermented in the gut like the soluble fibers, feeding the friendly bacteria and promoting better overall health

Teff contains eight different amino acids and deliver substantial support for growth and development. Teff contains Vitamin C and several minerals and nutrients, especially a high density of calcium essential for bone growth and development. Teff grain has been known as an anti-inflammatory and menstrually soothing agent for generations.

Millet is a very important grain with significant levels of protein and dietary fiber. According to the USDA National Nutrient Database***, it contains impressive starch levels, vitamin B, calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, magnesium, and fats.
