Premium Oats, also known as Single or Double-Cleaned Oats
Oats destined to become Northern Elite Oats Grade 2 are selected for good colour, plumpness, large kernel size, heavy bushel weight, low moisture and low foreign material. Only high quality oats are chosen for Champion Oat Processors’ Northern Elite Oats Grade 2. These oats have greater kernel size variation than Northern Elite Oats Grade 1.
Upon selection, oats are cleaned, clipped and polished. An in-line dust extraction system further reduces the possibility of dust. Special care is taken through all stages of processing to ensure a consistently high quality product. The end result is product of high quality. Northern Elite Oats Grade 2 are normally purchased in bulk for mixing into textured horse rations; however, they are also available either whole or crimped (rolled) in bags and mini bulk totes.
