Why have oats?
Commonly known as the old fashioned oats, rolled oats have a mild and soft texture, and tend to absorb a lot of liquid. The oats are toasted, hulled, steamed, and then rolled by passing them through large rolling mills. Rolled oats are best used to make oat milk, smoothies, baked fruit toppings, granola, muffins, snack bars, and cookies. It is said that the complex carbs in them help one stay full for longer and are also rich in protein, iron, zinc, and magnesium while the soluble fiber helps in lowering cholesterol.
