Oat Fiber / Oat Bran

What is the difference between Oat Fiber and Oat Bran?
I purchased a very small amount of Oat Bran yesterday, the fellow who owns the health food store said they are the same, but I just wasn't sure so I only bought about 1/2 a pound. Didn't want to invest too much money until I checked here.

And if this info has already been posted, can someone just point me toward the original post??

Oat fiber and Oat Bran are NOT the same. Oat fiber has had all the starch stripped from it and is only indigestible fiber and no digestible carbs. Oat bran still has starch.

Thanks ouizoid... I didn't think they were the same. You'd sort of expect the owner of a health food store that's been around for years to know that.

if you look at the nutrition on the brands Netrition sells of these, the oat bran has 21 grams of net carbs per third cup, while the oat fiber has 0 grams per cup. I'm sure the oat bran is great in things, but not low carb.

I think the oat fiber is an extremely specialized product, normally only available to commercial bakeries and stuff? I am not surprised he hasn't heard of it. Netrition has a lot of very hard to find specialty low carb stuff for baking from this company.

His bulk bin wasn't labeled, I knew the oat fiber was 0 grams... that's OK. I only spent 64 cents

Thanks much for the help!!

At Netrition. Click on the blue oat fiber words and it will take you to
Netrition.

Char gave you a good one, here is another really great one. And there is no substitute for her formula.

I just ordered the oat fiber online this morning. Can oat fiber be used in a smoothie, or will it clump up? Also does anyone have more recipes using it in making breads (besides the English Muffin one) as well as other dishes?
