grain is produced through a series of processes. First it is
dehulled. It is then hydrated (usually through steaming). Next it is
gently and briefly heated before passing through a rolling mill.
Before packaging it is thoroughly cooled. This processing stabilizes
the grain, meaning the enzymes are neutralized to prevent oxidation
and rancidity. The heating transforms the starches to more simple
sugars, making them more easily digested.
