McCann's Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal

This is not your ordinary bowl of oatmeal. McCann's Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal bears little to no resemblance to the rolled oats that many of us have eaten since childhood. Instead of being "mushy" or "lumpy," the texture of steel-cut oats is delightfully nutty and chewy, and, if prepared using the overnight soaking method, deliciously creamy as well. These oats are wonderfully filling, and taste terrific when topped with dried or fresh fruits, a bit of cinnamon, and just a teeny bit of brown sugar, maple syrup, or honey.

For those unfamiliar with steel-cut oats, they 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 and have a lower gycemic index.

The facts: 150 calories, 2 grams of fat (0 saturated), 0mg of cholesterol, 0mg of sodium, 26 grams total carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber (2 soluble, 2 insoluble), 4 grams of protein, 6% iron (based on 2,000 calorie diet), and 2% calcium (for 2, 000 calorie diet).

Manufacturer says: Oatmeal is an excellent source of fiber. It contains no salt or cholesterol and is naturally low in fat. This is a natural product made only from the whole grain of Irish Oats.
