I’m looking at making a flapjack type recipe for my DIY soylent using oats.
However, I’m concerned about the manganese levels in raw oats.
I understand that boiling them reduces the level massively but what about baking them?
Is it the boiling in water that reduces the levels through dilution or is it just the heat that breaks it down in some way?
So could I bake the oats in the oven to make flapjacks and not worry about toxic levels of manganese?
Or would soaking the oats before baking them help?
Thanks in advance all.
