Dear NCE
The nutritive value of instant and cooked oats is very similar, but the glycaemic index (GI) differs. Some standard cooked oats are classified as medium-GI (Bokomo, Pick 'n Pay), while some are high-GI (Tiger). All the instant oat products are high-GI. These differences are due to certain changes in the oats during processing.
If you add low-fat milk or yoghurt to your instant oats then the GI of the combination will be lowered.
