Why overnight oats?
All grains including oats contain phytic acid, which binds to nutrients and makes them harder to absorb. Soaking oats breaks down the acid and helps increase the absorption of nutrients, like zinc and iron.
Soaking the oats also facilitates the break down of the natural starches, a type of complex carbohydrate, found in oats. This helps to improve digestion, aid in weight loss, and increase feelings of fullness.
Better absorption. Better digestion.
