The recent "calories in oats" thread got me thinking- why is it that people say that old fashioned oats and steel cut oats are better for you than quick oats? According to Quaker, old-fashioned and quick oats both have 4 g of fiber in a 1/2 c serving. Is there some other indicator I'm missing? Much as I know I'll be scorned for saying this, I prefer the texture of quick oats- it seems comforting to me. But I wonder- am I missing out on the health benefits of steel cut or old fashioned oats without realizing it?
