Grupo Bimbo has launched its new Bimbo Oat Bread with Vita-San®, into the market. It is the first bread that helps maintain normal cholesterol levels. This forms part of its continuing desire to offer quality products capable of providing health and nutrition benefits for consumers.
Oats are rich in soluble fiber, which helps to control blood cholesterol levels and due to its low absorption rates contributes to produce a feeling of satiety. It must also be said that it has insoluble fiber as well that helps maintain good bowel function.
Vita-San® is a phytoesteroles mix, compounds which are naturally found in small amounts in vegetables, fruits and grains. Scientific studies have shown that phytoesterols help reduce LDL (bad), and total cholesterol levels without changing HDL (good) cholesterol levels.
Eating two servings of new Bimbo Oat Bread daily, provides you with 0.8 g of Vita-San® (phytoesteroles), which together with a low saturated fats and cholesterol diet can help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.
