where can i buy raw oats
I buy the raw oats and I soaked them like you suggested but they turn into broken up mush and lose the rolled oat consistency. I then dried them and ground them into flour which was fine but if I wanted them whole in a recipe what would I do? I like them whole in my granola and bars and Ive never soaked them before, didnt know. I like the chewy texture they add but maybe they were causing me gas, not sure. Im just not sure if Im doing this right. Help!
Jeannie,Unfortunately, the soaked and dehydrated oats will loss some of their original shape through this process. I recommend testing out a few brands though and see how they come out. Also, test and see if you need to soak them. I do recommend it regardless but your system may be able to digest them just fine unsoaked. How do you feel when they are soaked and dried? Less gas? Keep me posted! amie sue
I followed up with the Legacy Valley producers ,Montana Monster Munchies (very nice and helpful btw), about the oat groats and found a few things to note:1) The Amazon product listed is not raw and sprout-able anymore2) Amazon product is $30 now, not $20.3) Soap.com (Amazon owns them) has some remaining supply of the $20 raw and sprout-able variety from Legacy Valley4) Both products have a shelf life of about a year, and they have not sold Amazon the raw variety for some time, meaning the shelf life may be shorter if ordered from soap.com

We have both truley natural and organic product (it is dificult to find organic ground clean enough to produce gluten free). We also offer raw flour and bran.We would be happy to send you some to try.
I hope that your juice detox went well. Yes, truly raw oats are hard to find, so you need to use what you feel best with. That is really what it boils down to. And just FYI, I keep my oats, grains, nuts and seeds in the fridge and/or freezer to prevent any from going rancid. Its a habit that I started 8 years ago and never lose product that way. :)
Many people make overnight oats the way you talk about. I have always been one to soak (with an acid medium), drain, and rinse my oats, nuts, seeds, and grains. When I cook them, I also cook them with a strip of kombu seaweed to help with digestion. Everybody is different and some require the extra steps to help with digestion. blessings, amie sue

A groat is another name for a grain kernel. Whole oat groats are the result of simply harvesting oats, cleaning them, and removing their inedible hulls. You can most often ﬁnd these in health food stores. They take the longest to cook.
If you cut groats into two or three pieces with a sharp metal blade, you get steel cut oats. They cook quicker than oat groats, because water can more easily penetrate the smaller pieces. Steel cut oats are also sometimes called Irish oatmeal.
Rolled oats (sometimes called old fashioned oats) are created when oat groats are steamed and then rolled into ﬂakes. This process stabilizes the healthy oils in the oats, so they stay fresh longer, and helps the oats cook faster, by creating a greater surface area.
Our Organic Gluten Free Protein Oats are purity protocol gluten-free (the highest GF standard) and have about twice the digestible protein of typical rolled oats and 20%-40% more fiber, which means they have a lower glycemic load.

Q. My family has squabbled about oats for some time. Some members say that to get the biggest health benefit from oats you need to eat them raw, at room temperature, and moistened with water. Others say they should be cooked. Does cooking take something beneficial out of oats? Can you bring us some peace at breakfast time?
A. Eating a bowl of raw oats "moistened with water" doesn't sound all that appetizing. And I am not sure it makes sense from a nutrition perspective. Normal cooking takes little away from oats. In fact, cooking helps release some nutrients that your body can't extract from raw oats.
Is it healthy to eat raw oats? Eating raw oats is healthy, however it is recommended to soak the oats before consuming. Soaked oats absorb the liquid which reduces phytic acid, and increases digestibility and nutrient absorption.
As a matter of fact, due to the steaming process it is fair to say that rolled oats are actually not completely raw. Heating does make the oats more digestible, so technically they are not really raw.
Raw oats are contain a large amount of the soluble fiber beta-glucan, which may lower blood pressure, cholesterol and insulin levels. Eating raw oats may also alleviate constipation and promote a feeling of fullness that can encourage weight loss.
Moreover, raw oats contains phytic acid which is an antinutrient that promotes nutrient deficiencies as it binds to minerals like calcium, zinc and iron, making it difficult for your body to absorb them.
The phytic acid in raw oats interferes with mineral absorption. Soaking raw oats reduce the amount of phytic acid present in the oats, thereby minimizing the impact. Additionally, soaking activates fermentations which makes digestion easier and softens the oats to help prevent constipation.
The good news, as Healthline points out, is that eating raw oats is perfectly fine and shouldn't put you at risk for foodborne illness. The benefits include a robust dose of the soluble fiber beta-glucan, which has been shown to help lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar. The only minor downside is the level of phytic acid in raw oats. Phytic acid can decrease the absorption of some minerals, but it can be mitigated with a soak in water, which helps decrease the concentration. Soaking also softens the oats, aiding in overall digestibility.
Some foods are potentially dangerous when eaten raw, such as flour. But what about raw oats? You can blend raw oats into a smoothie, make overnight oats, or use them to make delicious balls or bites, but are they safe to eat this way or will they make you sick? Below you'll find several examples of when eating raw oats can be potentially dangerous and when they're safe to eat.
There are several forms of oats, but rolled oats are one of the more popular varieties. According to the FDA, rolled oats are produced from 100% dehulled, clean oat groats that are steamed, cut, rolled, and flaked. Similarly, instant or "1-minute" oats are groats that are cut into several pieces and then steamed and rolled. Because they are cut into smaller pieces, they can be cooked quicker. Steaming the oats helps minimize the risk of pathogenic microorganisms being present and makes it safe to eat raw. This is why overnight oats or recipes that use raw rolled or instant oats are safe to eat.
Although using raw oats to make overnight oats is safe, you still need to keep in mind that overnight oats need to be refrigerated. Moist carbs create an environment for bacteria to grow, and the best way to minimize any bacterial growth and keep your overnight oats safe is to keep them refrigerated and not leave them on the countertop overnight. 041b061a72
