Known as a supergrain, oats are a natural source of iron, which is essential for building immunity against diseases. To help us meet or fulfill the daily recommended intake of iron in our body, oats can easily be integrated into our meals. Apart from breakfast, oats can be taken as a complement to savory meals, and of course, can make desserts a little less sinful, proving its versatility.
