January is Oatmeal Month

This January, celebrate Oatmeal Month with a delicious bowl of McCann's Steel-Cut Oats! Steel-Cut oats are high in B-Vitamins, calcium, protein, and fiber. They are also low in fat, contain no sodium, and may help reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol levels and high blood pressure.

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. They are heartier than rolled oats, which are flake oats that have been steamed, rolled, re-steamed and toasted. Less processing gives steel-cut oats a chewy texture and a glycemic index lower than that of rolled oats. The quality of Irish Oats and the distinctive crunchy texture make McCann's Steel-Cut a gourmet delight.
