WINNER: Flahavan’s Irish Organic Jumbo Oats, £2.30/1kg, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Ocado

What the judges said: ‘Creamy and grainy, with just the sort of bite you expect from traditional oats. Jumbo oats are digested more slowly than fine milled oats and their lower GI helps keep you feeling fuller for longer.’
