Why Kilning?


Kilning is a hydrothermal treatment conducted on oats once the hull is removed. Oats have a high lipid content and the active enzymes make them susceptible to rancidity. To prevent this and better the shelf life of oats, we directly induce steam into the oats before heating them. This helps inactivate the lipase in oats, improving the shelf life of our finished flakes and giving it a ‘nutty’ flavour thus makes it a distinct Aussee product.
