Many diabetics and obese patients believe that oats are a healthy breakfast option. Before switching to oats from wholesome Indian breakfasts let's understand oats. There are 3 types of oats steel cut, rolled and the quick cooking ones.

Steel cut oats are chewy and take a long time to cook and have a low glycemic index. These are the healthy kind and ideal breakfast food.

Rolled oats take a little lesser time to cook and are more versatile with moderate glycemic index.

The quick cooking ones are the most popular and have a high glycemic and may not be exactly ha very healthy option for diabetics and obese patients.
