Nairns have used a very simple ingredient to bake tasty and wholesome food that is as simple and natural as possible. They use only wholegrain oats grown in the Scottish Borders where the climate is perfect for slowly ripening the grains and where farmers don’t use insecticides.There are lots of benefits of eating oatcakes, the main one is they keep you feeling fuller for longer! Oatcakes are also a wholegrain food and contain a rich variety of phytochemicals which act as antioxidants and complement those in fruits and vegetables when consumed together. As you know oatcakes are also a low GI food, therefore helping control blood glucose levels by reducing post-meal rises in blood glucose levels and providing a steady release of energy.Other products may contain refined wheat which doesn’t give you the same energy boost as oats and can cause problems for people who have certain food intolerances.
