Oatibix!

Just tried these, they are made by weetabix and are basically weetabix but are made from oats. Taste quite good and are a easy way to get oats into your diet. Anyone else tried these?

    How does the p/c/f - calorie breakdown compare to that of Weetabix's?

    Its made out of 97% oats. Calorie breakdown is pretty similar to weetabix. I guess this is low gi though.

    It's just a fancy way of getting you to pay over the top for what is essentially compacted oats!

    Always gets me, a bag of straight forward unbranded oats costs about what?50p for 1kg?Buy them in a quaker oats box and suddenly the price doubles or even trebles. Get them shoved together into a biscuit shape with a bit of sugar thrown in and the skys's the limit.

    Hey how do you mix your whey protein into a biscuit?Suppose you could pour it over them....

    I would imagine that they will be the same size as normal weetabix which is i think 37 grams per 2.

    So probably about 5.

    I got some and tried them last night. They tasted very similar to Weetabix and the only different were they soaked up the milk alot sooner and thus were softer with a smaller amount of milk. They look the same and make the same annoying mess when you serve them from the silly plastic packaging Weetabix still insist on using after all these years.

    I wonder what the GI is?

    Either way they are a good source of soluble fibre so will have hear benefits and I can see them catching on

    I liked the fact that they didn't need too much milk either as you can keep them a little crunchy if you want.

    What have they done to the oats to make them stick together into a "bisk"? If they've chopped them into small bits, the grains aren't whole anymore so the GI will be higher.

    I think it's just another value-added product. You can get a kilo of oats for what, 39p? How much does a kilo of oats in Oatibix form cost?

    I noticed a small amount of sugar in the ingredients and just wondered if weetabix are the same?
