    this thread is still alive. awesome!

    i would think it would store and can be used exactly like oats.

    however it does have a little more of a distinct flavor that oats which are more flavorless. so i'm curious as to how it would taste ground up and thrown in a shake.

    Glycemic index is a rather imperfect system.

    I finally found some of this guy at Giant Eagle. It's pretty decent. I think it's comparable with brown rice, and tastes delicious with a li'l terriaki sauce.

    I dunno about oatmeal, though. I usually put raspberries and whey protein in my oatmeal (delicious, if you've never tried). I did this with quinoa.......um, no. :P

    its a pretty fair replacement for rice, it just has a bit of its own flavor, a sort of nutty/earthy taste.
