View Full Version : Oatmeal

Some may find this gross, but are there any health risks involved in eating oatmeal raw...i.e. just taking a 1/2 cup right out of the quaker oats container and gulping it down with some water? I don't mind the taste of raw oats, actually I kinda like it. Just not sure if it will make me sick or not, and I'd rather not test it.

I can't see how it could harm you.

When you cook it all your doing is adding water and heating it. So really there's not difference except for the heating process.

i eat oats with water. I prefer it to cooking. it's also more time efficient.
