Organic Oat Groats are the hulled, whole, and unbroken inner kernels of the oat, and are the source of almost every other organic oat product available. They contain all three parts of the oat, making them the most nutritious oat product, along with steel-cut oats. These oat groats are kilned (baked). The reason for this is to give them a nice toasty flavor as well as to inactivate the enzyme that causes oats to go rancid, thus creating a more shelf-stable product. The result is a healthy, chewy texture that's ideal for cereals, casseroles, cookies, and more.

The ideal storage conditions for organic oat groats are at less than 75% relative humidity and less than 75 degrees F. A best practice, for grain, is to store the product in the cooler during summer months if not going to be used within 30 days. If stored under optimum conditions, the shelf life is one year from date of manufacture.
