This month our facilities are featuring oats. Oats (Avena sativa) have a sweet ﬂavor that makes them a favorite for breakfast cereals. Unique among the most widely-eaten grains, oats almost never have their bran and germ removed in processing. So if you see oats or oat ﬂour on the label, relax: you’re virtually guaranteed to be getting whole grain.
In the U.S., most oats are steamed and ﬂattened to produce rolled oats, sold as “old-fashioned” or regular oats, quick oats, and instant oats. The more oats are ﬂattened and steamed, the quicker they cook – and the softer they become. If you prefer a chewier, nuttier texture, consider steel-cut oats, also sometimes called Irish or Scottish oats. Steel-cut oats consist of the entire oat kernel (similar in look to a grain of rice), sliced once or twice into smaller pieces to help water penetrate and cook the grain. Cooked for about 20-30 minutes, steel-cut oats create a breakfast porridge that delights many people who didn’t realize they love oatmeal!
