In my on-going research into the availability of raw oats, I have just received this message from Bob’s Red Mill regarding their oat products.
From Bob’s Red Mill Customer Service:
None of our oat products are raw. They are all stabilized at 200°F for 4-5 hours to stabilize the enzyme. A raw oat will only live for about 72 hours, which is why it’s unlikely that you’ll find raw oats on the market unless you purchase them directly from a farmer.
