Oats can be had with milk, yogurt, almond milk, water and one can have a variety of both Indian and international dishes with this one ingredient. However, there are many purists who always wondered if the oats that most people have – the steel cut variety – are the healthiest variety and give the consumer the full nutritional value of oats.

Basically, most oats consumed in India are the steel cut variety – which is the most processed among oats and are also called instant oats. they take far lesser time to cook and hence are a great option for breakfast.

Quaker has come up with a less processed, healthier variety of oats – Quaker whole oats and changed the landscape once again. Also known as rolled oats in many parts of the world, whole oats are a source of whole grains, which means they come packed with a bunch of beneficial nutrients including fiber, B vitamins, vitamin E, minerals, healthy fats, and antioxidants.

Quaker brand ambassador Vikas Khanna was present to tell us more about the product and gave us a masterclass on how to use these. The two dishes he came up with showcased the variety in oats in general but the new whole oats add a much needed wonderful texture that is critical to so many dishes.
