Different from steam treated rolled oats where the enzymes have been denatured with steam heat for an extended shelf life, Maine Grain oats are dry rolled, preserving all of the nutrition inherent in the grain and intended to be eaten fresh.
Oats are a crop ideally suited to cool moist climates and Maine potato farmers have been growing oats for years. Oats are a beneficial addition to the farm ecosystem and a healthful addition to the human diet. Grown in Aroostook County, ME; these oats are a combination of the varieties “AC Aylmer” and “Goliath” hulled oats.
Maine Grains mission is to cultivate and deliver exceptional organic stone ground grains, which are locally grown and sourced. Through a unique stone-milling process, they are able to preserve nutritional content and improve the performance of their flour for natural fermentation baking.
To prepare oatmeal, a ratio of two parts water to one part oats is recommended for cooking. Soak overnight for softer oatmeal. Rolled oats make porridge in 15 minutes. These are also excellent in cookies, bread, or homemade granola.
Store in a cool, dry, dark place.
