Compared to buckwheat, it has a higher GI, less fibre and protein, and a slight amount of sugar. It’s not really much over white rice, and is overrated as a health food.
I’m still not sure what makes buckwheat and oat bran so much better than the alternatives given the nutritional facts alone. Oat bran in particular is pretty close to normal oats. Maybe the type of polysaccharides or something? The question about why sugar is okay here but not there is still a bit of a mystery to me.
