Oat flakes are very versatile and being used as an ingredient for muesli, pastry's and cookies, to name a few. Oats is very rich of nutritional fibers and proteins. It contains also much thiamine (vitamin B1). The latter is especially important for good functioning of the muscles and its nerve system. Oats contain also all kinds of minerals, among which mangaan, magnesium and phosphorus. In order to make the flakes, the moisture content of the grain is raised by means of steam. The grains are then flattened by flattening machines, where they come out as flat flakes. It is almost impossible to flatten the grains without steam, because this extra moisture makes sure that the grains are flattened instead of crumbled.
