"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.

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.
