Rolled Oats can be considered to be a healthier sibling of your readily available and fast to prepare – the general Quick Oats. Everyone is aware of how oats are an extremely advantageous snacking option due to the various benefits it offers – especially related to conservation of energy and improving the nutritional intake of our body. Rolled Oats, are old fashioned oats, which are created by steaming the oat groats (the outer exterior, or the oat husks) to make them softer and then rolling out the processed product into little discs or flakes. This procedure, along with lightly toasting the processed oats, stabilizes the healthy oil content present within the oats so that they stay fresher for a longer period of time. Since these oats are never exposed to extreme processing, they maintain a major portion of their original and natural shape and texture, thereby not turning mushy or runny like quick oats, when cooked. Further, pure oatmeal does not contain gluten. True Elements ensures that it consistently follows and upholds ethical food standards and hence these oats are lab-tested to secure the “Gluten-Free” claim it makes.
