Why is it important?

The review highlights structural and functional features of oat proteins as well as its functionality. Another important aspect discussed is the impact of cultivar and growing environment on structure and functionality. With new insights into oat proteins, the paper provides a starting point for using oat in the food industry

Perspectives

I hope this article provides helpful information to revitalize oat proteins as a functional food ingredient and open up new possibilities for its utilization in diverse food applications
