Add something to your recipe. Do not be afraid to dream. Feel free to experiment. However, remember that if abused, it can harm the body.

Oatmeal has a beneficial effect on the immune system, mental activity, ingenuity, and the work of the digestive system. Most people equate oatmeal and hercules. This is a misconception. Kashki cereals and flakes (Hercules) - completely different things. Let's see together how they differ.

Porridge from oat flakes (Hercules) or the flakes themselves are obtained in the process of processing oats. From oatmeal (more here) different cooking technology. Cooking time takes from 5 to 15 minutes, depending on the recipe.

Groats (oatmeal) are whole grains. It will take 35-50 minutes to prepare. Ready meals are distinguished by the amount of stored vitamins and nutrients. The processed Hercules loses 40% of all nutrients. Experts recommend to use oatmeal to 5 once a week in the morning, and cereal - less often, if necessary, a quick snack.

I would like to note that the calorie content of oatmeal is small, it refers to dietary dishes. Caloric content of cereals (in dry form) is - 300 kcal. Caloric content on water - 85 kilocalories, on milk - 101 kcal. As you can see, the cooking method affects the calorie content of the finished dish.

Important facts

Be careful when choosing cereals for cooking, see the name on the pack - “Extra” or “Hercules”. There are three varieties of "Extra". The difference is in the processing of flakes.

Flakes "Extra 1" - very soft. They underwent steam treatment. Pour boiling water on them, insist and eat.

"Extra 2" is made from sliced ​​cereals. Cooking need minutes 9-12.

"Extra 3" - contains a lot of carbohydrates. They are made from whole grains. It is considered more beneficial than others for the stomach, preparing 15-20 minutes.

"Hercules" is a separate type of oatmeal. It will take more time to cook, it turns out to be a thicker dish. Oatmeal - the most healthy breakfast. Cook with pleasure.
