I just went to the Quaker Oats site and looked at the nutritional value for their one minute Oatmeal. It's what I like, I'm sure there are other things that you might like differently.

Calories for a 1/2 cup =150
Calories for a 1/2 cup with milk-190

Carbs 27 g with 4 fiber =23 net carbs, ok nice to know--sometimes I have a craving for oatmeal.

I see your point about cross contamination by using the same machinery for oats and wheat. I'd not thought about that. Thanks

That depends on how it's manufactured. Some manufacturers use the same machines for the oats as they do for wheat, barley and/or rye. found that one out.

A gluten-free diet excludes the protein gluten which is found in grains such as wheat, barley, and rye. Oats in the form of oat meal, oat flakes, and steel cut oats does not contain any gluten naturally. There is no need to look for a gluten free product since oats do not contain gluten.

I used to love oatmeal, especially that very cold frigid morning as I headed out to the bus stop going to work. But I found oats to spike my BS so I all but gave up on them. I will try looking for those thick cut but I have never found any steel cut that were certified gluten free (processed in a certified gluten free factory)

That's interesting. Today is my first day using organic, unprocessed wheat bran w/my steels and it made a difference in my blood sugar! LOWER. So, I'll be doing that from now on.

I eat steel cut oats or thick cut oatmeal only. I buy these in bulk at a whole-organic foods store. I mix unprocessseed wheat bran with the oats. This combination has a low glycemic index/load and provides about 12 grams of fiber. This is about half of the recommended 25 g minimum daily recommendation. All good stuff.

I agree it depends on how your blood sugar reacts to the oatmeal. We are all different in how we react.

I can deal w/steel cuts but the rolled and quick oats -- raise the blood sugar. The instant packages, forget it. As the article said, too much sugar and salt.

I definitely add cinnamon to mine with sometimes vanilla. IF I need to sweeten it, I will add the appropriate amt. of berries.

More than the type of oatmeal, it depends on how your body reacts to it. The only way to know if it is OK is to test your blood sugars after eating it.

Thank you for the info. The article was very helpful. I never eat instant oatmeal which is a plus. I try and buy rolled oats, but may try Irish or steel cut oats. I did learn some interesting facts from the article. This is another example why I like Sparkpeople. Everyone is so helpful, finding good info and knowledge for you. Then it's up to us to be proactive and figure out what is best. Thanks again.

It depends on the type of oatmeal...Check the Glycemic Index and carb count for all the items you add to your oatmeal, too !
Here is an article to help you out more !

I have T2 diabetes and enjoy a bowl of baked oatmeal with peaches, blueberries and almonds for breakfast about 4 times a week. Lately I have been hearing that oatmeal isn't good to eat for diabetics. Has anyone heard this before?
