How to store Oats:
Store oats in tightly covered containers to keep out moisture and insects.
Keep in a cool, dark, dry cupboard. Quality is best when used in 3 to 6 months.
To store for up to a year, package well and keep in the refrigerator or freezer.
Tips on how to save money on oats:
Compare package sizes for the lowest cost per ounce.
Bulk oats may cost less than packaged oats.
