Hey guys. As far as nutrition goes, to be able to get the most out of oats like the Quaker oats at the grocery store. What is the best way to prepare them. I know a lot of people do the oatmeal thing but is cooking them taking away any nutritional value. I generally nuke mine chill it and through it a blender with protien for a MRP. I have seen in another post that blending it raises the GI. So what is the best way to eat the greatest carb on the planet?

The best way is up to your liking ,but���.
I eat oat meal quite often, and I have to change things around as to not get bored with it.
I do it your way as well.
One of my favorite is instead of nuking them with only milk I add a glob of vanilla yogurt. After they have been cooked I will add some cereal to help make them not so gummy. Grape nuts are my old standby, but anything goes.
Oh! Yes! Don�t forget a sprinkling of cinnamon.

make sure you get the whole oats not the instant oats. I nuke mine and add two scoops of ptotein powder. once in a while i add a handful of raisins if i need the instant carb boost. In the morning when i am in a rush, i just mix them up with a scoop of protein poweder and add a little milk, no nuking!

I often don't even cook my oatmeal, I just put in ice cold water with vanilla protein powder and lots of cinnamon. It tastes kind of like a dessert that way, and the oatmeal is chewy and pleasant.

I used to put raw oatmeal in my yogurt, which is similar in texture and tastes great.

I used to add them to shakes but the taste got old and I read that the GI wasn't that low after blending.

I usually just nuke them with nonfat milk and a little natty pb, cinnamon, and spenda.

This may be of minor interest.

An examination of the possibility of lowering the glycemic index of oat and barley flakes by minimal processing.

* Granfeldt Y,
* Eliasson AC,
* Bjorck I.

Department of Applied Nutrition and Food Chemistry, Chemical Centre, University of Lund, S-221 00 Lund, Sweden.

Differences in glycemic responses to various starchy foods are related to differences in the rate of starch digestion and absorption. In this study, the importance of the degree of gelatinization and the product thickness for postprandial glycemic and insulinemic responses to rolled oats and barley were studied in healthy subjects (5 men and 5 women). Thick (1.0 mm) rolled oats were made from raw or preheated (roasted or steamed) kernels. In addition, thin (0.5 mm) rolled oats were made from roasted or roasted and steamed (processed under conditions simulating commercial production) oat kernels. Finally, steamed rolled barley kernels (0.5 or 1.0 mm) were prepared. All thin flakes elicited high glucose and insulin responses [glycemic index (GI), 88-118; insulinemic index (II), 84-102], not significantly different from white wheat bread (P: > 0.05). In contrast, all varieties of thick oat flakes gave significantly lower metabolic responses (GI, 70-78; II, 58-77) than the reference bread (P: < 0.05). Thick barley flakes, however, gave high glucose and insulin responses (GI, 94; II, 84), probably because the botanical structure underwent more destruction than the corresponding oat flakes. We conclude that minimal processing of oat and barley flakes had a relatively minor effect on GI features compared with the more extensive commercial processing. One exception was thick oat flakes, which in contrast to the corresponding barley flakes, had a low GI.

I have heard he best way to eat oats was just plain cold (raw) with milk as this keeps the GI low and also holds most of the necessay dietary fibre needed in keeping the system regular and to maintain passage rates. Cooking the oats increased the GI but obvioulsy dependent upon when in the day you want to eat it???
Also read somewhere that large flake oats are more beneficial with regard to a lower GI.

Nuked with water and a pinch of salt, a scoop or 2 of whey, a pinch of cinnamon, a tablespoon of ground almonds, teaspoon of lecithin, and a chopped banana. With a hot chocolate. Good morning!

Myself like SteelCuts (Irish Oatmeal in the steal can) with twice the water, cook for 15 and then add 2 sccops of choclate whey and 1 tbls of dextrose, about 15 minutes after I eat this I feel like a million bucks.

umm, take a bowl, pour in some grapenuts, cover that with all-bran, cover that with natural oatmeal, add a scoop of protein powder, mix with 8oz of light yogurt and chomp away.

Does throwing them in the blender with my protein powder and milk really change the GI that drastically???. OK sorry water/oats/protein powder/ and INSTANT COFFEE . breakfast of champions...whoooohooo.
Seriously though does it?

I have always just put one cup of instant or regular plain oats (in the big tube) and mix it with 3/4 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt. I have never thought about processing them because i never figured an effect on GI. I checked the GI chart i have and i didnt see any reference to it.
