What is "Scottish Oatmeal"? Are these just oat groats with a different name?

"Oatmeal originated in Scotland centuries ago and was different from our modern rolled oats. A coarse meal was produced by slowly grinding the kernel between two large mill stones. Our Scottish Oatmeal is produced in the same old fashioned way and contains all the health giving nutrients of the best quality oats from which it was ground--the germ, the oil and the fiber. The result is a surprisingly unique and flavorful hot cereal. "

Thanks,

i think they are chopped a little finer than steel cut, and cook easier, but they are not rolled.

Scottish Oats are stone ground and finer. Steel cut are Irish Oats.

Just like with Whisky, Scottish Oats are better than Irish! LOL

I prefer the Bob's Red Mill Scottish Oatmeal. I also add 2 tbsp of the Bob's Red Mill Flax Seed Meal after I cook the oatmeal in the microwave for 1 minute. It's delicious as is. Great nutty flavor. Save the sugar and fruit for another meal.

I've seen numbers from 49-51 +/- 8

GI is not really a set in stone number. It's more relative.

Oatmeal is in the low-to-moderate range which is about as good as grains get.

This is the Sydney listing ... porridge oats = scottish oatmeal

Food Name and Manufaturer: Traditional porridge oats Australia

GI (vs Glucose): 51 +/- 8

Serve Size: 250

Carb per Serve (g): 20.3

Glycemic Load: 10.3

Time Period of Test: 2h

Subjects Used in Test: Normal
