    Grinding up steel cut oats.

    Okay, so I've been grinding up my steel cut oats and putting them into my protein shakes. I usually don't let them soak, I just pour them in and start drinking. Is the body able to digest these, or should they be soaked, and softened up first? Also does grinding them up change the nutritional value at all? I'm just trying to make sure I'm not wasting my money on all these oats.

    No, they are digestable unsoaked. The nutritional profile doesn't get changed while grinding either.

    Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

    I like the taste too. I mix mine with Dymatize Cafe Mocha whey, and milk. It tastes really good.

    dude, its a blender, and there oats.......you can snap any kinda of major manufactured oats (quaker, kellog, etc..) litteraly in half with your bare hands.


    and if your not buying major store oats. then you my friend have access to some weird ass geneticaly engineered oats.

    its not like your trying to grind up nails into metal powder. seriously, re-read your question and think about it for a good minute before you even reply back to this.

    mate a blender often struggles to dice a banana - you'll still find half of it stuck to the blades and clagging your shake when you chug it down

    i've crunched on oats before, they are little hard fragmented things. when i imagine the propeller blades of the blender rotating, i can imagine the suckers clagging up the bottom of the blender and i can also imagine sucking down on a drink that is 1/2 liquid and 1/2 soggy oats at the bottom.

    get my drift?

    so the question i was posing was, what's the go people, does a blender turn my oats to powder or not?

    if ALL blenders turned ALL oats to powder, then why the hell are people using coffee grinders?

    man idk what kinda blenders you have down in australia (not-dissing on australia or anythin) but here a blender has more than just 1 setting. a blender here can blend a banana without reaching anywhere close to its medium setting.

    i'm not rich and i'm not talking about a fancy blender. i'm talking about the simplist blender. the cheapest you could find at walmart or whereever. has ATLEAST 4 settings. blenders here are able to chop/grind meat, (even though they make specialty meat grinders)but you could also get it done for free at the grocery market. and at the same time finish your shoping

    people use coffee grinders because thats what they have. why go out and buy a blender when you can use your coffee grinder. 90% of the people here drink coffee everyday in the morning as there kickstart. hence why they have it, and with the convience of today's society, not everyone needs a blender.

    but your question was involving a blender.

    again, idk how you do it in australia, and i have nothing against it. but it might just be that your stuff is way more diffrent than the rest of the people on this forum's.

    i bought a 10 dollar coffee grinder at walmart to cut my steel cut oats. I would imagine this does a better job than a blender because coffee needs to be cut very fine. I've never tried a blender. Someone else said you can snap any oats with your bare hands but no you can't, steel cuts are not flimsy like quaker oats.
