Naturally Yours Oat Flakes (200g)
Oats are the seeds of a grass, Avena sativa, which has been cultivated for thousands of years. When oat flakes are made, whole oats are steamed to soften them and then they are rolled out to flatten them. The flattened oats will cook very quickly while retaining the nutritional value of whole oats. One of the big disadvantages to whole oats is that they can take a long time to cook; flakes cut down on the cooking time, turning the healthy oat into a convenience food.
