How is Organic Oatmeal Colloidal Powder made?
The whole oat grain is milled a sieved, resulting in a fine powder. This particular type of Oatmeal Colloidal is manufactured by a unique patented process whereby the coarse whole oat flour is extruded prior to being fine milled to the USP particle size specification.
It’s been demonstrated that pre-solubilising the starches by extrusion improves dispersion and suspension of the colloidal oatmeal without the need for further grinding, thus preserving the molecular weight of the beta-glucan.
