Does anyone know of a difference between Quaker Instant whole raw oats ready in five minute versus the Quaker Instant oats ready in one? The nutrient profile is exactly the same but since I add them to protein powders in the blender, I’m wondering if there’s a variation in bioavailability or the digestion time.
I do NOT microwave the oats by the way…

“Quick” oats or “instant” oats have been steamed, before being rolled into flakes. This means that they’re a bit pre-cooked and therefore would probably mix and digest better with cold shakes.
Myself - I prefer for breakfast cereal the regular rolled oats w/ boiling water, because there’s more texture. The quick oats are definately soggier.
