Hello, I’m Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com, researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I’m going to answer the question, is Quaker Oatmeal oats good for diabetes. But before we get into that, make sure you download my free diabetes management book which also includes a diabetes grocery shopping guide (foods to eat and avoid) by clicking the link: http://bit.ly/2g0NDAH

This is kind of a tricky question. Because we can think we are talking about the same thing when we say Quaker Oats and Quaker Oatmeal, and in some ways we are but in other ways we aren’t.
Oats are the whole grains or kernels that are the seed of Oat Grass, while oatmeal commonly refers to the cereal or porridge made by cooking processed oats in a hot liquid. Coarsely ground oat kernels are also called oatmeal while finely ground oats creates oat flour.

Are you still with me?

To further complicate the matter, oatmeal is actually made of oat groats, which are oat kernels from Oat Grass with the husks removed.

So now that we are totally confused, let me see if I can clear the mud.

Oats or oat groats, are the grain component in Oatmeal. Oats plus liquid and other food components make up oatmeal.

Oatmeal has a low glycemic index. It has properties to help maintain glucose levels. We know that those of us with diabetes like those types of foods. Oatmeal can also promote heart health.
Oatmeal is also high in fiber and aids in digestion.

So it sounds like oatmeal is a great breakfast choice for those with diabetes.

But wait, as Robb Wolf put it, “Does anyone remember the product Wilford Brimley was the spokesperson for years ago? Right, Quaker Oatmeal. Does anyone know what Wilford Brimley now promotes? Diabetes testing supplies.“

What he meant by that is be careful when choosing Oatmeal. Quaker Old Fashion Oats are a fine choice for breakfast. Cook them up, add a little skim milk and cinnamon and who wee, you got a great start to your day. High in fiber, low is sugar, aid in digestion with a low glycemic impact, wonderful.

Where you need to be careful is with some types of Quaker Oatmeal. Quaker has oatmeal flavors such “Maple and Brown Sugar” and “Cinnamon Roll” which are packed with sugar and very high in carbs.

So, to make a complicated answer out of what seemed at first to be an easy question, Quaker Oats can be a fantastic choice for those with diabetes. Most Quaker Oatmeals, do not! The average sugar content in Quaker Instant Oatmeal is about 12 grams. Buy Quaker Old Fashion Oats and make your own oatmeal.

I hope this answered your question is Quaker Oatmeal oats good or bad for diabetes. Don’t forget to get your diabetes management book by clicking the link: http://bit.ly/2g0NDAH
