    1/4cup dry of Steel Cut Oats makes????????

    I made a cup of them dry and it obviously made more than that when cooked. Question is for nutritional purposes is how much does 1/4cup dry actually make when cooked, just so i know how much I am eating and can keep track and fit it into my macros.

    The calorie/nutritional content of the oats does not change after being cooked. The volume changes due to the oats soaking up water and expanding. Just worry about what the label says. If it says 1/4 dry equals such and such cals, then just go by that.

    You can always measure out how much volume 1/4 cup oats comes out to when cooked.

    If it says 1/4 uncooked is 100 calories or whatever, then 1/4 cooked is 100 calories

    not exactly true, if made with water 1/4 cup cooked would end up being less calories because the oats absorb the watter and take up more space. just go by what the label says...the labeling on oats always goes by the dry weight so measure it out dry and you'll be fine.

    You should be able to go by dry. If you went by cooked it would be different depending on the consistency you make the oatmeal. However, I noticed that steel cut oats have 2x the nutritional value for 1/4 cup. Does anyone know if 1/4 cup of steel cut makes about the same volume cooked as 1/2 cup rolled or quick oats?

    The facts on the box is it uncooked. But whenever I cook them it just about doubles in size maybe just a little bit more so if you are measuring out cooked oats the facts on the box would be about 45-50% less than what you are getting.

    Cooking the oats will not change the caloric content. The volume will change as they will expand from the absorption of water, but the calories and nutrient content will not change.

    Lightbulb 1 cup

    Yes, of course it would be the same calories for the dry as that same portion after it is expanded with water after cooking, but to answer the question originally asked, 1/4 cup dry = 1 cup cooked, approx.
