7,000 B.C.: The first known existence of oats was in ancient China in 7,000 B.C. Before there was Quaker Oats, whole grain oats were consumed in mass amounts by people of the ancient times. Oats were one of the first cereals cultivated by man. The ancient Greeks were said to be the first people who created a recognizable porridge (cereal) from oats.
26,000 rolled oats: An 18-ounce package of Old Fashioned Quaker Oats contains about 26,000 rolled oats. Today, there are a variety of companies that produce oats, many of which are organic and gluten-free. When combined with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, oatmeal may help reduce the risk of heart disease. Oatmeal is also a great source of B vitamins, fiber, and calcium.
Oatmeal facial: If you’re looking to alleviate sunburn or other skin damage, there are skin-soothing properties in oatmeal facials. Oatmeal contains 18 different amino acids that act as building blocks to heal blemishes and rebuild tissue. For a good facial, combine a quarter cup of ground oats and two to three tablespoons of water. You can customize your facial by adding “mix-ins,” such as avocado, sour cream, vinegar, and yogurt.
Instant oatmeal: In order to make instant oatmeal, food manufacturers must spend extra time pressing and steaming the oats. The process allows consumers to cook them in less time. However, due to the extra processing, instant oatmeal is broken down faster in the gut. Therefore, you may feel hungry after you eat a bowl.
