View Full Version : Hulled or Unhulled?

I don't know the difference or which is cooked/not? I was looking at some oat groads at the HF store and they were hulled. I didn't get them b/c I wasn't sure if they were raw or not?? Same goes for seasame seeds? You would think I would know this after over a year! :rolleyes:

As far as I know, raw oat groats are raw; the flakes may or may not be...not sure.
Everyone here seems to be saying the unhulled (just means "with the shell on" sort of like a sunflower seed with its black shell on or a pumpkin seed with its beige shell on) sesames seeds which are distinctively brown are the ones you want; however, I don't really know if the hulled (white ones most commonly found) are "bad."
I do know, if you buy the unhulled (brown) ones, they should be well rinsed first (similar to beans and grains which need to be washed/rinsed before using). This may interfere with a recipe you want to make; so make sure to do this well ahead of time and let them dry, if necessary, or pop them in the dehydrator to quicken the drying.
So brown sesame seeds (unhulled) = best (according to the majority opinion on this site)
