Now to the other question you want to ask: Is ROLLED OATS different to OATMEAL?

Rolled oats are one very common type of oatmeal cereal. The name “rolled oats” refers to the fact that the whole oat grains are steamed and then rolled to produce flat oak flakes. Rolled oats are commonly referred to by many different names, including old-fashioned oats or oatmeal, flaked oats or oatmeal, oat flakes, rolled oatmeal, or just plain simple oatmeal. ALL these types of oats required about five minutes to cook.
