View Full Version : Are groats always raw?
01-10-2007, 07:27 PM
I found a source for certified gluten free oats (Cream Hill Estates) and was wondering if all oat groats are raw or not unless stated...? I'd like to find some oats I can consume...I miss meusli...I have found raw buckwheat groats though.
Does anybody know?

I have heard of them, but I dont know what they are? I know that Alissa sells raw oats on her site and they are yummy.

yea, i believe so. groats is usually the term given to any whole grain kernel thats "in the raw".
and everytime i see this thread pop-up under new posts i think it says "goats" and for 3 seconds im like "wait..huh?"

Oat groats can be heated to stabilize enzymes which cause rancidity. It's best to look for oats that are deemed sproutable to be sure.

EYB, you crack me up!
Thanks Mongo, I didn't know a raw groats/oats would sprout...I should contact them and ask about temperature...I wasn't sure what groat meant.
"Groat Oats" reminds me of "Grape Ape".
