Oats represent a major food source and currently rank seventh in the world production of cereals after maize, rice, wheat, barley, sorghum and millet. With their high nutritional values such as dietary fiber, beta-gluten, proteins, unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, they have become a staple food in a number of countries.
The global oats market has its consumption in both food and feed use. Although, oats have been a part of the human diet for a long time, their principal use has been as a feed grain. Changing farming practices, increasing awareness about animal nutritional requirements, increasing availability of low cost ingredients that could be blended to provide high quality feed formulations, however, have caused the usage of oats as a feed grain to fall intensely. On the other hand, the consumption of oats for human food has been increasing continuously. This has been catalyzed by an increasing awareness on the health benefits of oats.
Oat flakes are currently the most popular type of oat based food products. They are currently gaining popularity worldwide in the form of breakfast cereals. Oat flakes may be regular/rolled, quick or instant type. The regular types currently have the largest consumption. The quick and instant types represent the newer ones and require shorter cooking times compared to the regular ones but have a lower shelf-life. Apart from flakes, oats are also used in a wide variety of food products to provide unique flavor and moisture retention characteristics as well as to increase their nutritional value. Porridge or oatmeal, hot cereals, bread, biscuits, infant food, and muesli or granola bars are a few examples of food products made from oats.
