    Having a dilemma, I bought some oatmeal last night which looks exactly the same as the oatbran I've been buying and yet when I looked online they are apparently two different things.

    I actually mixed it with what was left in my tub of oat bran and you would not have been able to separate the two so are they actually the same thing?

    After a thorough investigation of google it would appear there is a lot of confusion over what is bran and what is oatmeal. Certainly what I bought looks nothing like oatmeal which seem to be porridge oats. Anyway I checked the nutritional values and it looks about the same so I'm not going to stress too much about it and get some proper stuff when I go shopping later in the week.

    it just made a galette about twice as thick as a normal one lol! Manage to get some proper oat bran this evening. I think I will save the oatmeal for breakfasts when I'm in stabilisation.

    oh well done beverly and welcome. You should be having your oatbran though it helps break down fat.

    Morrisons do the mornflake one (its usually on the bottom shelf of the porrudgy type things) asda do one and so do tesco.

    Hello and welcome... I feel I "know" you already as I'm subscribed to Karen's thread...

    Definitely find the oatbran as you can bake delicious muffins, cakes etc. with it... within the constraints of how much you're allowed per day, of course! I'd eat it breakfast, lunch and dinner if I could!

    Welcome!
