Oats are nutrient-packed powerhouses that make for a variety of meal options!

They are one of the most-loved breakfast options in the United States. So much so, that the US has dedicated the 29th of October to National Oatmeal Day.

Oats offer major purported health benefits, including boosting metabolism, promoting digestion, improving heart health, and strengthening the immune system.

They also come in a variety of cuts and colors, depending on how they are produced and the form they exist in. However, organic is the way to go when selecting oats.

Organic products are natural and free of pesticides and insecticides, thereby safe for consumption. They are produced without any artificial boosters, and are hence loaded with nutrients.

You can find all categories of organic oats at S.F. Mart, an online organic food store. We offer a wide range of USDA and CCOF certified organic products including grains and rice, beans and lentils, flour, seeds, and herb and sun-dried products at affordable prices.

Learn about the different kinds of oats and what they do for you!

Organic Whole Oat Groats

The first thing you need to know about oats is that the basic form of the oat is the groat, which is unbroken and dehulled. The groat consists of the cereal germ, the bran, and the endosperm.

Consumed in this form, they make for extraordinary sources of fiber.

Groat oats have a nutty flavor that’s also a tad bit sweet. They take longer to cook because of the extra layer but taste delicious once cooked.

They must be stored in an airtight container. Get them now!

Organic Rolled Oats

Rolled oats are one of the most popular oat choices.

They’re a processed version of groats. The groat is steamed and then rolled by thick steel rollers to different thicknesses. 

Rolled oats contain all the nutrients from the groat, yet are easier to cook and are extremely versatile with their taste. They can be added to milk or made into granola, pancakes, cookies, muffins, and much more.

McCabe’s organic thick (pictured above) and regular organic rolled oats available at S.F. Mart are a safe and healthy rolled oat option.

Organic Steel Cut Oats

Steel-cut oats are simply the whole groat chopped into three or four further pieces.

They cook slower than rolled oats but are a delicious, crunchy option that can be added to cereals and bread.

Most people love them for their natural, nutty flavor which tastes even better once roasted!
