“Groat” comes from the old Scottish word describing an oat kernel with the hull removed. Our Organic Oat Groats have a hearty, chewy texture and nutty flavor that’s great for rustic pilafs, salads, stews and hot cereal. For fresh organic oat flour, grind our groats on your home mill.
Organic Whole Oat Groats have a longer cooking time than cut or rolled oats (this is where a slow cooker comes in handy!), but the exceptional flavor and texture of this wholesome breakfast cereal make it well worth the wait. Use these hulless oats in place of rice for pilafs or cold grain salads.
The FDA says that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol and rich in foods that contain dietary fiber, particularly soluble fiber, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Oat groats are a good source of fiber and iron and can help you feel fuller longer. Oats may also help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, since their soluble fiber helps control blood sugar.
