That they are generally not raw.Kasper wrote:Btw, RRM, what is your opinion about raw oats ?
"Raw oats begin to show signs of enzymatic rancidity within four days of being dehulled if not stabilized. Oat groats pass through a heat and moisture treatment to stabilize them".
So, the heat treatment is needed to make them last.
Can you clarify in what way?my digestive system always reacts positive on the fibre of oats.
I mean, do they counteract diarrhea? Stop gripes? Eliminate gasses?
Oats contain more soluble fibre (beta-glucans; chains of D-glucose) than other grains (4% in oat flour) and also its (globulin-like) protein is more soluble. So that oat absorbs water, slowing down digestion, filling up your bowels.
Heated protein may sedate your bowels.
