Flaked Oats

Also known as: Rolled Oats

Unmalted Adjunct


Flaked Oats are commonly used in beer brewing as an unmalted adjunct. They contribute a light color to the beer and are known for their ability to enhance the body and mouthfeel. Due to their high protein content, flaked oats create a smooth and silky texture in the finished product. Flaked Oats are often included in beer styles such as stouts, porters, and hazy IPAs. These styles benefit from the addition of flaked oats as they help create a creamy and full-bodied mouthfeel. The flavor profile of flaked oats is relatively neutral, allowing other ingredients to shine, while also adding a subtle sweetness and enhancing the overall balance of the beer.
