[[Talking Points]]

Culinary: What’s the difference between quick-cooking and rolled oats?

Quick oats are the most processed of the oat varieties. They are pre-cooked and dried. Then they are rolled and pressed slightly thinner than rolled oats. Rolled oats absorb more liquid and cook faster than steel-cut oats. They also hold their shape during the cooking process.
