I eat 150 grams of raw oats every morning together with other things, and I have just heard that oats should always be cooked (boiled). (I do a lot of exercise)
I heard that in the long run, raw oats can cause problems such as irritable colon, gasses, digestive problems and inflammation and deficiencies in magnesium, iron, calcium and potasium due to the phytic acid present in oats.
I have also heard that it takes a long time to digest, and it can leave remains in the intestines.
The thing is that appart from occasional gasses I do not feel bad and my blood analysis always are corect.
