Questions and Answers:

September 5 '08

Eran asked...
Q: Is your Oat Mylk Raw?
A: Technically our oat mylk we serve is not raw. We use organic whole rolled oats. Many people say they are raw, but they are not really. You need whole raw oat grouts.

Q: If yes, where can I find Raw oats?,
A: Most health food stores or co-op will have raw whole oat grouts.

Q: Do I need to soak and sprout them first, how long?
A: Yes, see below

Store bought rolled oats are heated over 120 degrees during the process to make them rolled. To really get a raw, you would have to buy whole organic oat grouts (not steel cut). The look similar to whole wheat berries.
Soak them for 8 - 10 hours in water. (This starts the germination process)
Drain the water in a colander with small wholes.
Cover with a clean kitchen towel
Let the oats sit in the colander for 8 - 10 hours.
Make sure any left over water can drip out and drain.
None of the oats should be sitting in any water that is dripping out
Put 1 cup of the oats in a vita mix or strong blended and 3 cups water.
Blend on high for 1 min.in a Vita mix or 3 min in a blender.
Strain and enjoy
