What are unstabilised Oats?
Four Leaf Unstabilised Rolled Oats are not subjected to steam processing. The natural oat kernel is rolled immediately after hulling, which ensures the retention of their high vitamin content, nutritional value & freshness.
They're a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Studies show that oats and oatmeal have many health benefits. These include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and a reduced risk of heart disease.
For grains, oats are high in fat, about 7 per cent to 8 per cent. Good for warming yourself up on a cold winters morning. In their natural form, oats contain lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fat to help the seed sprout. When oats are processed, however, lipase makes the oats go rancid. Neither harmful nor appetising. Stabilised oats are steamed when they are processed to knock out lipase to extend their shelf life. Unstabilised oats have not been subjected to the steam treatment and last about three months. Proponents of unstabilised oats maintain they are better for you and recommend they are kept in the fridge to retard the onset of rancidity.
Suitable for creamy porridge, plus slices, muesli and general cooking.
Preservative Free, Chemical Free, Pesticide Free, GMO Free, Vegan.
You may already know that oats don't actually contain gluten but rather they contain a protein called avenin and are therefore naturally gluten free. These oats have been grown without the risk of contamination and have not been processed on the same machinery as wheat, rye or barley.
