    steel cut oats, can't figure cooked or uncooked

    Hey,
    I'm trying to figure if the steel cut measurement is cooked or uncooked.
    On the www.calorieking.com database it says:

    Breakfast Cereals, Ready to Eat: Irish Oatmeal, Steel Cut
    or
    Breakfast CEreals, Cooked: Steel Cut Oats

    Both measurement are pretty close:
    40 gr

    cal 158
    Fat 2.8gr
    Carb 27gr
    Pro 5.6gr

    It seems ovious that it's cooked. But what confusses me is that for normal oatmeal they write it like that:

    Breakfast Cereals, Cooked: Oatmeal, instant, plain cooked.
    or
    Breakfast Cereals, Cooked: Oatmeal, instant, plain dry.

    In that case one is dry and the other cooked but for Steel cut they don't mention it that way.

    So any one knows what's the correct way to measure it ?
    Because it can make a uge difference in Cal and carb if you go dry or cooked.

    1/4 cup steel cut oatmeal equals 1 cup cooked

    the nutritional fact would be the same, because 1/4 C dry = 1 C cooked

    I see what you mean; their calculation method makes it a bit cryptic. 1/4 cup dry, or 1 cup cooked would be approx. 6g protein, 29g carb (5 of these are fiber, though, so it is net=24g carb) and 3-4g fat, approximately. Cals ~ 150-175 or so.

    This is really weird because if you look on their web site:

    http://www.calorieking.com/foods/foo...52969&partner=

    They say:
    Breakfast Cereals, Cooked: Steel Cut Oats
    1 cup 6oz
    cal 680
    fat 12
    carb 116
    pro 24

    So the product title says "Breakfast cereals,cooked", but the measure they show is when the oats is uncooked (Dry).

    That is what you are saying?

    yeah, basically their info (here) is not accurate. A cup is 8oz. 1 cup dry would yield probably close to 4 cups cooked, and THAT would give you the 680 cals, 12g fat, 116g carbs, 24g pro. Divide those numbers by 4 and you get the single serving numbers.

    If you were to add more water than the amount indicated per 1/4 cup of dry steel cut oats, would the equivalent amount of 1/4 cup of dry steel cut oats be higher than 1 cup cooked steel cut oats?

    You posted in a 6 year old thread to find out if adding water to something increases calories?

    Look on the box. It should tell you what the nutritional facts are. It usually gives you the one for dry, I believe.

    And to the rest of you, at least he's one of the few people who actually used the search button instead of making another oat thread like most people do. BFD.
