History of oats

Oats are one of the world’s oldest grains and have been used for thousands of years for food, medicinal, and farming purposes.

Research from Iowa State University claims that oats found their way from Europe, where they have long been a major crop, and were first planted off the coast of Massachusetts during colonial America. In fact, President George Washington had around 580 acres of oats on his land.

In the 1800s, the crop moved towards the Mississippi River, which is where most American oats are grown today.

What's the difference between rolled, steel-cut, and instant oats?

There are three main types of oats. In the beginning stages, raw and unprocessed oats are called groats. How they are processed determines what style of oats will eventually be made. Here are the main differences.

Rolled oats

Rolled oats are also commonly called old-fashioned or whole oats. They are groats that are steamed to make them soft and malleable. They are then rolled over with a rolling pin and pressed down to flatten. Once that part is complete, rolled oats are texturized and look like irregularly-shaped ovals.

They cook slightly faster than steel-cut oats and maintain their shape during cooking by absorbing more liquid, which makes them ideal for things like granola bars and oatmeal.

Steel-cut oats

Steel-cut oats are often referred to as Irish or Scottish oats. They are made when the oat groats have been cut up rather than rolled over. As such, steel-cut oats look similar to rice.

They have more of an earthy and toothsome flavor that takes slightly longer to cook than rolled oats. Steel-cut oats are commonly used for things like porridge and stuffing for a turkey dinner. They also make a solid rice alternative. However, because steel-cut oats are so solid, they are less ideal as a replacement for rolled or instant oats.

Instant oats

Instant oats are the most processed of the three styles. That’s because they’ve been pre-cooked then dried out. Once dried, they are rolled and pressed even thinner than rolled oats. One of the benefits is that instant oats cook the fastest, but the trade-off is that they don’t maintain their shape when cooked and frequently come out mushy.

Because they’re both partially prepared the same way, you can use instant oats as a replacement for rolled oats and vice versa.

Health benefits of rolled oats

From the time our parents tried to feed us oatmeal as children, most of us have come to respect oats as a health food. But there’s more to it than just image. Oats, particularly the unprocessed varieties like rolled oats, actually provide a number of important health benefits.

  • Good for the heart. Oats naturally contain high levels of fiber, which has been proven to be a tool in lowering cholesterol and helping to prevent heart disease.

  • Supports healthy weight. The complex carbohydrates in oats are slowly absorbed into the body and give the sensation of being full over time. That helps stop cravings and leads to less snacking between meals. This phenomenon also helps to stabilize blood sugars and prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.

  • Assists in controlling blood pressure. Recent studies have found that the consumption of oats may help reduce blood pressure and lessen the risk of hypertension.

  • Gives the immune system a boost. Consuming oats may help your immune system fight disease and infections more rapidly. Part of this is due to the fact that rolled oats have antioxidant compounds that prevent the formation of harmful molecules that can lead to a range of diseases.

  • Promotes better bone health. Oats are rich in calcium, which helps to strengthen bones and the entire skeletal system.
