Oats question

Hiya,

When I was at work the other day I tried putting 50g of oats (Quaker) with some milk and drinking it straight without cooking it in the microwave like I usually do with my breakfast porridge.

What I wanted to know was whether this is a perfectly suitable means of taking oats, i.e. straight from the packet with some liquid rather than cooking? Is it a less efficient means of taking it?

Thanks for any help,

Dave

    i tried this for the first time the other day. thought it was absolutely discusting as it just tasted like cardboard - even with a bit of sugar.

    Yeah it certainly doesn't taste as good as porridge but I can happily drink it.

    As a general rule, the less you do to your food in terms of processing it (ie baking, microwaving etc.) the better. This rule obviously has some circumstances in which it falters, such as with meats that require cooking. In answer to your question, yes, taking oats 'raw' so to speak, is a perfectly viable means of ingesting them.
