I buy all 3 kinds, I get Oat bran, steel cut oats, and just regular rolled oats... is there no point in me doing this?
If you want, go for it. I think they all taste a little different, but maybe I am just weird. They definitely have different textures and work well in different foods. I like to mix and match. Serving sizes are different, though. .5 cup steel cut oats = 1 cup thick rolled oats. If you are dieting down and want to feel like you are eating more, I say go for the thick rolled oats. If you aren't and it doesn't matter, then any of the 3 are great.
i dont think thats right, based on what I have read
I read that groats are considered the whole oat, but with the hard-to-chew outer shell removed. Basically, groats are like steel-cut oats before they are "cut with steel". Oat bran is only the outer layer(not shell) of the oat. This part has the most fiber of the entire grain just like wheat bran would.
Groats are technically less processed than steel cut oats, but take so much longer to cook so its not really worth it in my opinion.
I want to try steel cut.. Whats the difference b/w steel cut and old fashioned?
