At the UNCLE TOBYS factory in Wahgunyah, oat groats (hulled oat grains) are steamed before being flattened or rolled to create our famous Traditional Oats.
Quick oats are created by steaming the oat groats for longer and rolling them thinner, which breaks up the grain so that they absorb water quicker and cook faster.
Both rolled and quick oats make an easy and nutritious breakfast and are essential ingredients in favourite snacks and treats such as muesli bars, biscuits, crumbles and cakes.
The versatility of oats means that cooking with oats is only limited by your imagination. Enjoy your oats with these healthy and delicious ideas:
The UNCLE TOBYS name and logo has significant historical significance, it was designed by Nellie Love, the niece of Clifford Love – the founder of UNCLE TOBYS, who was a keen artist and a student of literature. She suggested the name and designed the logo based on the great literacy character in the “Life of Times of Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Sterne, first published in 1759. In the book Uncle Toby is a gentle, uncomplicated lover of his fellow man. The original design of Uncle Toby standing with the Widow Wadman has seen little changes over the years, so has become a treasured representation of the UNCLE TOBYS heritage.
