Also called Scottish Oats or Irish Oats are groats (whole oat kernels) cut into two or three pieces.

Source of our Steel cut Oats
Oats, as we know them today, originate from the wild red oat, a plant which has origins in Asia. Oats were originally cultivated for medicinal purposes but have now become a food staple due to their numerous health benefits. We import whole grain Oats from Western Australia which is one of the highest quality producers of this healthy grain. These Oats are then washed, hulled and dried in India and further processed at our facilities.

Our Steel-cut Oats contain a high amount of Beta Glucans
Beta glucan is known to lower bad cholesterol and triglycerides. By eating oats daily one can see a reduction in bad cholesterol (LDL) levels between 5-7 percent. Beta glucan, being a soluble fibre, slows down food transit in the body, thus slowing down digestion. This means the body doesn’t absorb sugar and keeps blood sugar levels regulated. Beta glucan, being indigestible, goes through the whole digestive tract taking cholesterol out with it thus helping lower cholesterol levels.
