Hulless oats grown on our farm in Grundy county, Illinois. The oats have never left the farm. It was grown, harvested, cleaned and stored here. It's non-GMO and certified organic.

These oats would look like whole oat groats you'd buy at the store;  except these haven't been heat treated and processed to remove the hulls. This is a natural occurring trait in this variety (hulless) in which the hulls easily fall off in the harvesting process (combining). They were then cleaned on the farm with an air screen and gravity table cleaner.

Oats are one of the most nutritious of all grains and are considered a good source of the soluble fiber betaglucan, which helps to decrease cholesterol levels in the blood. Other important nutrients found in oats are B vitamins, vitamin E, copper, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, and thiamin, all of which are important for maintaining a healthy body.

Oats may contain gluten, the substance in some grains that gives dough (made from the grain) its elasticity and helps bread to rise properly. Although there is some debate as to whether oats actually contain gluten, people who must follow a gluten-free lifestyle should consult medical professionals before consuming oats and products made from oats.
