All right... and here's what CC has to say on the subject:
"crude" (I assume that means uncooked??) wheat bran: 125 cal/cup.
Raw oat bran: 231 cal/cup.
The stats are around double too. Is oat just a denser material than wheat? I'm starting to think the labels at the store were a little bit off, though. :|
Its because oat bran weighs more than wheat bran. Look at the stuff, a cup of oat bran is (obviously) denser than a cup of wheat bran.
Compare by weight instead of volume and see how they match up.
well, oat bran is like a hot cereal...you'd eat it alone..if you ate wheat bran alone it'd be like ground up cardboard, not tasty at all. So, one is denser and tasty by itself (oat bran) while the other is coarse and not intended to be eaten alone (wheat bran).
