Hello I have been eating more oatmeal now with PBC diagnosis. I cook old fashioned 3-4 servings at a time with cinnamon in the water and have it for the week. Then microwave add some honey, blueberries, walnuts and skim milk. Have never used steel oats, are they healthier?

Hello @gema98

That sounds like a delicious and easy breakfast. I have used steel oats, I'm not sure about whether or not they are healthier. They have a different texture and take a long time to cook. Here is an article that you might find interesting from Medical News Today. It compares the two, https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/rolled-vs-steel-cut-oats#how-to-choose.

Gema, have you made other diet changes with respect to your PBC diagnosis?



Steel cut oats are not as processed as the other oats….they take longer to digest and have a lower glycemic index (sugar) and slightly more fiber….so make keep you feeling fuller longer . I always use steel cut…prefer the texture….and make enough for 3 or 4 days also. I think quick oats are the most processed type. If you try steel cut…don’t use the quick type. The only time I use regular processed oats are in some muffin recipes.
I think you will like the texture of steel cut better…it’s not mushy….just make sure to cook it long enough. I get mine in bulk at Sprouts. So yes, it is a little healthier.
