Rolled oats, the amazing, healthy cereal - by Safiya Motala
Oats are incredibly versatile and are a hearty, healthy option for meals and snacks.
What are rolled oats?
Made from oat groats, rolled oats have been dehusked, steamed and rolled flat under heavy rollers. The tough outer bran is removed and they are lightly toasted.
The outer bran layer is nutritious, but also makes oats tougher to chew and turn rancid sooner. Removal of the outer bran layer makes oats easier to chew, digest and ensures they are more shelf stable.
Rolled oats retain their texture when cooking better than quick-cook or instant oats, but are softer than steel cut oats.
- Steel cut oats: Groats with husks removed, cut into pieces. Less processed, chewy, cooks slower, retains shape after cooking.
- Rolled oats: Groats with husks removed, steamed and rolled flat. Slightly processed, cooks faster than steel cut, not chewy, slightly retains shape after cooking.
- Quick oats: Groats with husks removed, steamed, rolled flat, cut into smaller pieces. Slightly processed, cooks quickly, not chewy, doesn’t retain shape after cooking.
