I know that rolled/quick/instant oats are steamed during their production, which apparently makes them more digestible.

I'm wondering if oat flour goes through a similar process.  If not, does that make it harder to digest?

Thanks

Oat flour is just pulverized oats.  You can make your own in a food processor.
Why would you want to eat raw flour?

Not sure why you would want to eat uncooked oat flour.  Are you adding it to a shake to get some complex carbs in?  The other post was correct, you can make it your self.  I would recommend that after youpulverize it (if amking large amounts) i would keep it in the fridge.  It helps to preserve it.

Oat flour has a higher GI than unprocessed oats.  You'd be better off eating old fashioned oats.

Nope.  Oat flour has little to no gluten, so it must be combined with a leavening agent for those applications that require a flour to rise.
