Oats are a type of cereal grain that has been cultivated by farmers around the world for centuries. Not only are oats harvested in different regions, but also in different climates due to their ability to withstand poor soil conditions. In today’s market, oats can be purchased in a variety of forms such as whole oats, steel cut oats, rolled oats, oatmeal, oat bran, or even as oat flour. In this week's blog, we will talk about the origin of oats and how they are grown.

Origin of rolled oats

Oats, or Avena Sativa, are said to have originated in the middle east. Oats are an annual plant, usually planted in early autumn to be harvested in the spring. Oats are a very popular plant to grow, and they can be used for many things. Most skin creams are made using oats, as they contain avenanthramides, which are a naturally soothing ingredient. This ingredient is used in most lotions and anti-itch creams to soothe the skin and calm any redness.

Oats are most commonly used to make oatmeal or porridge. This is a very nutritious meal that contains lots of vitamins and minerals. Oatmeal is eaten almost everywhere, as it is a simple and inexpensive food. Oats are also used to make milk, flour, bran, and much more.
