As Concierges for the Spanish section of BE we would like to say hello and welcome.

BE is a very large expat website, so if you have problems finding your way around we have concierges who will try to direct you. The moderators for the Spanish forums are Mitzyboy and Fred James, moderators are there to ensure that the site runs smoothly within the rules of BE. Problems and complaints should always be addressed to a moderador who will look into the matter and deal with it efficiently and fairly. Our members who post in the Spain Forums are friendly and helpful with a wealth of knowledge of the issues of living in Spain. At the top of the page you will find a quirkily named thread called Free Beer which is full of important and useful information. Hope you enjoy your time participating in the forums.

Please let us know if you need any further help.

Rosemary and Graham

Groat oats are minimally processed and high nutritional value. Suitable for diabetics, can be organic, high in protein, good source of fibre classed as a super health food.

Sorry cannot answer original question though as not in my diet although probably ought to be.

You can get regular porridge oats easily enough in Playa Del Ingles which have very similar nutritional value; certainly a viable substitute.

The captain is correct. :-) For others, the nutritional value is non-existent with any other form of processed and steamed oat - the rubbish they sell in supermarkets. :-) Trust me, oat expert here. If anyone knows of a health food store/oat farmer that sell them, I would be eternally grateful. It is a very important part of my recovery diet in healing - transformative. Many thanks and much appreciation

Can't actually answer, but intrigued, I googled and there is a canary forum which had a thread about coeliac requirements (I know, I know) and referred to health food outlets so posting on there might achieve something? Dunno.

I'd not go that far, for most people they will do the job fine. What are you recovering from if I may ask (and good luck with your recovery whatever you have/had).
