Porridge[1] (also historically spelled porage, porrige, parritch) is a food commonly eaten as a breakfast cereal dish, made by boiling ground, crushed or chopped starchy plants—typically grain—in water or milk. It is often cooked or served with added flavorings such as sugar, honey, fruit or syrup to make a sweet cereal or mixed with spices or vegetables to make a savoury dish. It is usually served hot in a bowl.

Type of grains

Cooked oatmeal in a bowl
The term "porridge" is often used specifically for oat porridge, which is eaten for breakfast with salt, sugar, fruit, milk, cream or butter and sometimes other flavorings. Oat porridge is also sold in ready-made or partly cooked form as an instant breakfast.

Other grains used for porridge include rice, wheat, barley, corn, triticale and buckwheat. Many types of porridge have their own names, such as polenta, grits and kasha.

Porridge is a staple food in much of Africa and historically was also a staple in much of Northern Europe and Russia.

Conventional uses
Porridge is easy to digest, so it is traditionally used in many cultures as a food for the sick and is often eaten by athletes in training.[2][3][4]

Nutrition and health benefits
The high nutrition levels in porridge oats have led it to be labelled as a superfood.[5]

Porridge oats, as with many whole-grain cereals, are high in fibre – especially beta-glucan, and are a rich source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidans. In fact, whole oats are one of the few known sources of a unique group of antioxidants called avenanthramides, which are believed to have protective effects against heart disease.[6]

A 2014 study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that a daily intake of at least 3 grams of oat β-glucan lowers total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels by 5-10% in people with normal or elevated blood cholesterol levels.[7] β-glucan lowers cholesterol by increasing the viscosity of digesta in the small intestine, although cholesterol reduction is greater in those with higher total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol in their blood.[8]

Porridge oats are also rich in B Vitamins, which are vital for nervous system and brain function, along with Selenium – an important antioxidant for healthy brain chemistry, DNA repair and is associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer. Ferulic acid, which is also prominent in porridge oats, is also known to be an antioxidant that protects the colon from cancer.[9] Research into the anti-inflammatory effects of porridge oats is ongoing, but there have already been positive indicators that regular consumption could prevent inflammation related to a number of chronic diseases, owing to the high avenanthramide levels.[10]

Porridge is often recommended for weight loss due to its low calorie count – at 171 calories per bowl – and its low glycemic index (GI) means they increase blood sugar levels gradually and over a longer period of time, reducing hunger and the likelihood of eating less healthy snacks.[11]
