2) Steel Cut (where the whole oats are sliced into small bits with steel blades), which take 10 to 15 minutes to make into chewier porridge, and may also be preferable to use for baking cookies; and,

3) a Quick Cooking type, which is the smaller, steel cut pieces rolled extra thin, which can cook into porridge in just two minutes after being added to boiling water, and/or is well suited for pancakes or cookies, muffins, breads, or other types of baking.

Certified organic, Adagio Acres' Naked Oats are grown without pesticides or herbicides, which makes them healthier for both you and the environment. And knowing the importance of oats as an alternative food-source for those avoiding gluten, Adagio Acre grows their crops in dedicated wheat-free fields, so none of their farm equipment dealing with these oats comes into contact with wheat, and also carefully tests the crops to ensure there's been no cross-contamination with any gluten-rich grains – particularly for the Steel Cut variety.
