The Inevitable Question: What is Steel-Cut Oatmeal?

i-just-really-like-oatmeal

Molly Zahner, the founder of Slow Girl Foods, wanted to share her story about the most commonly asked question about our product:

When I was first starting Slow Girl Foods, my Aunt Francie from St. Louis asked me,

What is steel-cut oatmeal?

I realized that although it’s a commonly used term when discussing oatmeal (as so often happens at cocktail parties, the opera, etc.), not many people know what it really is.

Steel-cut oatmeal is made with the whole grain oat (minus the inedible hull), called groats, which are cut into large pieces with steel blades. Unlike rolled oats or instant oatmeal, this minimally processed method retains bits of the bran layer and is more nutritious! It is also what allows for the chewy, nutty texture that is preferred by most people.

Steel-cut oats may have a lower glycemic index than instant oatmeal (42 vs. 66, respectively) which keeps your energy up longer. For those fighting diabetes, a low glycemic index is imperative.

Now, next time you are at a party you can reign supreme when the inevitable question is asked: just what are steel-cut oats?
