McCANN's Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal now available in a Quick and Easy version! Still full of all the natural goodness of Irish steel cut oats, the preparation time for Quick and Easy version is only 5 minutes!

McCANN'S Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal is made from 100% wholegrain Irish oats. The oat groat is cut to enhance the flavour of the Irish Oat. The distinctive hearty, chewy texture of steel cuts makes them a favorite. Steel-Cut Oats are whole grain groats (the inner portion of the oat kernel) which have been cut into only two or three pieces. They are golden in colour and resemble mini rice particles. Unlike Rolled Oats, which are flake oats that have been steamed, rolled, re-steamed and toasted and have lost some of their natural taste, goodness and texture due to all the additional processing, steel-cut oats are inherently full of nutritional value and are high in B-Vitamins, calcium, protein and fiber while low in salt and unsaturated fat. One cup of steel-cut oatmeal contains more fiber than a bran muffin and twice as much fibre as Cream of Wheat. The quality of Irish Oats and the distinctive crunchy texture make McCann's Steel-Cuts a gourmet delight.

Oatmeal is the only food that naturally contains GLA (gamma linolenic acid) an essential fatty acid critical to the body's production of the favorable eicosanoids (PGE1 - prostaglandins). Eating steel-cut oats (very slow cooking) four times a week will provide you with a good supply of GLA.

Wholegrain Oats and Type 2 Diabetes - In the U.S. almost 16 million people suffer from Type 2 diabetes with as many as 625,000 new cases being diagnosed each year. A new 10-year study published in the American Journal of Public health indicated that eating oatmeal (a wholegrain cereal) on a regular basis can help to reduce the risk of Type 2 (adult onset) diabetes. The study showed that eating 1 serving of oatmeal (equivalent to 1 cup cooked) 2-4 times weekly resulted in a 16% reduction in risk of suffering from Type 2 diabetes. By increasing consumption of oatmeal to 5-6 times weekly, there was a corresponding 39% reduction in the risk of onset of Type 2 diabetes.

Suggested Preparation:
Bring 3/4 cup of water to a boil. Add 1/4 cup McCann's Quick and Easy Oats. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 5 - 7 minutes, stirring regularly. Remove from heat and allow to stand for 1 minute before serving.
