      Instant is more processed than regular oats or steel cut oats. They claim the same nutritional information but this is similar to different types of rice that are more processed than others and have different GIs as well.

      Personally, I believe that the instant oats aren't as good while dieting as regular oats or steel cut. The more processed a carb is the faster it hits your bloodstream. Instant oats are cut into smaller pieces, as well, and it is funny to me that the oatmeal industry will say how healthy instant is and that it is the same as regular oats but then in the next breath tell you that oat flour is not healthy. A bit of a contradiction.

        I eat the slow cooked rolled oats. Used to eat the steel cut. Rolled cooks a bit faster than the steel cut and has a consistency I prefer. Both those options hold me longer with less blood sugar fluctuations than the instant.

            Im a huge fan of the steel cu6 texture. I'm assuming slow cooker means crock pot?

              No, I just meant slow cooked as opposed to instant. Bring water to low boil, stir occasionally. It's cooked similar to steel cut, just doesn't take quite as long.

                At my house, steel cut makes the best poop too 💩

                    Steel cut oats are minimally processed (ie. they are not flaked); regular oatmeal usually is flaked or otherwise processed.

                    Makes me want to cook up some oatmeal!
