Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oi oi oi...

I am embarrassed to find today, in this comparison of commercial oat brans (Luhaloo et al., 1998, J.Sci. Food Agric., 76, 142), that our oat bran is (was) really lame compared to the Scandinavian oat brans. See, we have the lowest protein! The highest fat! And the lowest beta-glucan (the bit that's good for you)! So, be sure to chose imported Nordic oat brain over our dubious local product... :(

Update:  At least our barley beats out Yemen and Albania. W00t!
