steel cut oatmeal

Why Steel-cut Oats?
Steel-Cut Oats are whole grain groats (the inner portion of the oat kernel) which have been cut into two or three pieces using steel discs. Golden in color and resembling mini-rice particles, they are as nature intended, nothing added and nothing taken out.

How are they different from Rolled Oats?
Rolled oats are flake oats that have been steamed, rolled, re-steamed and toasted. Due to all of this additional processing they have lost some of their natural taste, goodness and texture.

What makes McCann’s Steel-cut Oats so special?
Grains are essential to a healthy lifestyle and form the foundation of the food pyramid. Steel-Cut oats are inherently full of nutritional value and are high in B-vitamins, calcium, protein and fiber while low in salt and unsaturated fat. One cup of Steel-Cut oatmeal contains more fiber than a bran muffin and twice as much fiber as Cream of Wheat. The quality of Irish Oats and the distinctive crunchy texture make McCann’s Steel-Cuts a gourmet delight. SOURCE: McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal
