An incredibly tasty versatile and healthful grain, Oats have been a food staple of many cultures and continue to be very popular in North America today. Oats are very much full of nutritional value and they are extremely rich in B-vitamins, calcium, and protein with remarkable levels of soluble and insoluble fiber. They are low in sodium and unsaturated fat.
Whole grains should be well rinsed and drained before using.
Our Oats are grown locally in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia on healthy organic soils. It is part of Fieldstone Granary’s coordinated Organic Producer plan, where crops are grown within one degree of separation, according to the high standards of the Canadian Organic Regime. This way Fieldstone can assure a high level of purity and integrity of our grain.
Buy small quantities of oats at one time since this grain has a slightly higher fat content than other grains and can spoil more quickly.
Store whole oats in a container that can breathe in a cool, dry and dark place where they will keep for approximately two months.
Package sizes available: 750g, 5 Kg, 10 Kg and 20 Kg
Consume grains raw and whole as a breakfast cereal by soaking them overnight or 10-12 hrs in the refrigerator. This has the added benefit of activating the seed enzymes, making the grain more digestible and nutritious. Remember to rinse well before soaking.
Complimentary spices for oatmeal include cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, and ginger.
To cook, use three parts water to one part whole grain oats and simmer for approximately 50 minutes (30 minutes if you soaked them first).
