Vote for oats — they’re all winners!

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - SHOPPING -

STeel-cuT oaTS are the least re­fined va­ri­ety. They’re dense and chewy as a re­sult of pass­ing un­cooked through sharp steel blades that cut their ker­nels into thin slices to help them re­tain more fi­bre and pro­tein. They take 15–20 min­utes to cook. Quick oaTS are cut into finer pieces be­fore they are rolled, so take only min­utes to cook. The Gly­caemic In­dex of quick oats is a lit­tle higher than the steel-cut and rolled va­ri­eties, so they might not keep you feel­ing full for as long. Rolled oaTS have been steamed and rolled thin, mak­ing them a lot quicker to cook than steel-cut oats. FlavouRed oaTS usu­ally come in con­ve­nient sa­chets, of­ten with added sugar, so choose unsweet­ened ones.
