"Groat" is an old Scottish word from hundreds of years ago
that refers to cereal made from whole, hull-less oats. Our Organic Whole
Oat Groats take a bit longer to prepare than cut or rolled oats, but
the exceptionally hearty flavor and chewy subtlety of this wholesome
porridge make it well worth the wait. Oat groats are also an excellent
addition to your lunch or dinner menu. Use oat groats in place of rice
for a hearty pilaf or in a cold grain salad.
Scores of studies have documented the many health benefits of oats.
The FDA says that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol and rich in
fruits, vegetables, and grain products like oats that contain of
dietary fiber, particularly soluble fiber, may reduce the risk of heart
disease. Oats help you feel fuller longer, which helps control your
weight. Oats may also help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, since
their soluble fiber helps control blood sugar. Oats are higher in
protein and healthy fats, and lower in carbohydrates than most other
whole grains. They contain more soluble fiber than any other grain. They
also have the best amino acid balance of all the cereal grains.
