Does the 1-minute quick oats have a higher GI than the 5-minute old fashioned oats?
I'm not talking about the flavored instant stuff, I just mean the stuff that is cut thinner so it cooks faster. It has the same nutrition facts as old fashioned, but I've heard several times it has a higher GI
Yeah, I think it does...not really a big deal though.

its just cut differently, not so huge. I looked at the Quacker Oatmeal site, and it says there is no nutritional difference, just is faster to cook.

I read a thing at my gym that used instant oat and old fashion oatmeal as the example of processings effect on food GI, it said that old fashion oatmeal has a GI of 55 i think it was, and instany was 65. So it did increase it, but as far as we are concerned it is still a low GI food.

they do something else besides chop it up smaller for the instant oats I believe, they seperate something from it... forgot what it was.
