Are oat bran and Quaker oats the same thing? Oh and is it okay to add coffee grounds to muffins, and if so how much? Thanks.
Quaker Oats is a specific product sold by a company. The plain ol' Quaker Oats are rolled oats. You can just read the list of ingredients. I like http://www.wholehealthmd.com/refshelf/foods_view/1,1523,73,00.html [Broken] (that page lists info about oats) -- you might want to browse around it.Oat Bran is the food which is produced by
grinding clean oat groats or rolled oaks and
separating the resulting oat flour by sieving
bolting, and/or other suitable means into
fractions such that the oat bran fraction is not
more than 50% of the original starting material,
and has a total beta glucan content of at least
5.5% (dry weight basis) and a total dietary fiber
content of at least 16.0% (dry weight basis), and
such that at least one-third of the total dietary
fiber is soluble fiber.
