But what kind of oats are best? Rolled? Instant? Steel-cut?
We prefer steel-cut as they’re the least processed, but they also take the longest to cook.
Rolled oats are what most people are used to — they take about 10 minutes to cook and your body digests them a little faster than steel-cut oats.
Instant oats are the most processed and have the highest glycemic index ranking of the three types.
