Oat Facts:

  • January is National Oats Month
  • There are 3 types of oats:
    • Old Fashioned Oats – These are made by flattening the grain into a flake. For quick-cooking oats, old-fashioned oats are rolled even thinner and cut into small pieces so that the oats will indeed cook more quickly.
    • Instant Oats – This is an even thinner, more finely chopped version of the old-fashion oats that is individually packaged for convenience and quick-cooking. 
    • Steel Cut Oats – These oats have been chopped into tiny pieces and not rolled out. They have a harder texture, so they take longer to cook. They do tend to be more expensive than old-fashion oats, but some people may prefer the chewier texture of steel-cut oats. Steel cut oats are also known as Irish Oatmeal.
