GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Bob's Red Mill Organic Whole Grain.
Pleasantly chewy with complex flavor that stands up to any add-ons (try a sprinkling of dried fruit or nuts). The distinctive grains had a rice-like texture that, when cooked, reminded one tester of risotto.
TASTE TEST AWARD: Arrowhead Mills.
Yields a thick, delicious bowl that you'll want to loosen up with low-fat milk.

A nutty whole-grain flavor and texture with the right amount of bite make for a filling start to the day.
