These unroasted small oats flakes, as precooked with steam, can be eaten without cooking, eg in hot or cold milk for breakfast.

Whole oat (oat of which only the outer, inedible peel has been removed) has a slightly nutty taste and interesting nutritional properties. Ass it still contains a good part of its precious beta-glucan, it contributes to reduce the risks of coronary hart diseases or CHD.
Oat has the reputation of being one of the most nutritive cereals. Its percentage of proteins (12-20%) is above average. It also contains healthy fats, even unsaturated fatty acids, beta-glucan in its schill, and its numerous B vitamins and mineral-contents such as calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, silicon and zinc, are to be emphasized. Due to a starch division during ripening oat is a highly digestible cereal.

Diets including soluble fibres from certain foods and having a low content of saturated fat and cholesterol appear to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. The first clinical trials showing the link between the consumption of oats and the reduction of serum cholesterol level date back more than 40 years, more recent studies have determined accurately ß-glucan is the physiologically active component responsible for the cholesterol-lowering effect (with lower (bad) LDL-cholesterol and higher (good) HDL-cholesterol) of oats. In addition, many studies on the subject have allowed a health statement by the Food and Drug Administration of the United States: a diet rich in whole grain oats is associated with reduced risk of CHD. Studies have also shown the effect of stimulation of the immune system and on blood sugar control of beta-glucan.
