Boost your calories with raw oats

As the oats soak overnight, their digestibility improves greatly. The key has to do with what happens overnight as they soak. Their starches break down which improves digestibility and their natural phytic acid (which all plants contain) is greatly reduced that makes them more easily absorbed by your body. The soaking acts like a long cooking, which you won’t get from just heating them in the microwave or on the stove. Most people find overnight oats much easier to digest than cooked oats for this reason.

The bigger question: Is ONE night soaking enough to neutralize phytic acid?

Why Our Family Stopped Soaking Oats -
When I first began soaking our oats, I ran into a lot of conflicting information. Some sources said soak overnight in warm water (but it has to be a certain temperature), others said soak with an acid like apple cider vinegar or buttermilk (which makes the resulting food a bit bitter tasting), others said don’t soak with dairy. It was enough to drive me crazy. Now the research is showing that all of those soaking methods are not super effective at reducing phytic acid. One study showed that soaking oats for 12 hours barely reduced the phytic acid by 25%. This is because oats, like rice, contain barely any phytase. So now we need to add phytase, like wheat flour or buckwheat to the soak if we want to accomplish a reduction of phytic acid.

phytic acid is good

Phytic acid (phytate), concentrated in food such as beans, whole grains, and nuts, may help explain lower cancer rates among plant-based populations.

Don't believe this article! Having studied anti nutrients in raw foods heavily for 1 year by extensively studying the science literature and having done experiments with people and myself, l can say that the claims made in this article are simply far from the truth. There are many anti nutrients that are not eliminated by a 24 hour soaking, the most dangerous being lectins. Just the lectins alone make consuming raw grains not worth while.

Lectins can cause pancreas enlargement, digestive issues, and rob many nutrients by locking onto them and taking them out of the body.

The best way to consume raw grains is to sprout and ferment them, but even that is not enough for some grains. Some also need to be ground up.

What you say is true from the nutritional point of view. But from the medicinal point of view, lectins could be anti cancer.

If you eat raw oats and feel ok (no sensitivity), then raw oaks could extend your life by killing cancer.

Luckily we have so many other options to choose from for raw food.

That's only assuming that you're on par to die from cancer. A lot of phytochemicals kill cancer cells without the potentially harmful side effects.

One may eat raw soaked grains for the lectin anti cancer benefits,one may chew tabbaco for the aminao acids, one may drink whiskey for the so called heart benefits, but l think there are better ways to be going about these things,especially if one eats lectin foods for cancer while at the same time losing nutrients due to the effects of lectins chelating with minerals and disrupting bacterial balance in the intestines. See what l am saying?

In other words....one may eat raw oats for the calories and lectins, but will the benefits outweigh the ill effects from this food? I strongly suspect it would be wiser to recommend people eat other raw foods instead to reduce the side effects. It's important to take the entire benefit of the food into account.

It is easy to answer on the internet because someone else alredy did winking smiley

You will hear many health bloggers advocating for an anti-lectin or lectin free diet. That’s hilarious because it would be advocating for your death.

Why? Because these sugar-binding proteins are found in everything you eat, to at least some degree.

raw vegan "sprouted" oatmeal is a fairly common dish offered at raw vegan restaurants. After soaking overnight, you could blend with rejuvelac and let sit a second night in refrigerator before eating the next day.

Of course, it is common to add chopped apples or other fruit, dates or raisins, pumpkin pie spices, a bit of almond butter and a nut or seed or coconut milk to make a hearty dish.

It's a great dish. Some people don't even have time for that, so some companies, like Goldmine, offer raw sprouted, rolled oats. So they soaked and "sprouted" them and then rolled and dried them. Those dried oats are a bit fibrous and chewey but still good, but nowhere near as good as the freshly "sprouted" oats.

Interesting point for those with gluten sensitivity:
