What are rolled oats?
qI have a recipe that calls for rolled oats. Does it say rolled oats on the Quaker box?

Old Fashioned is what you will see on the container of Quaker Oats.
Rolled oats are the oat that has been rolled flat unlike the quick cooking that have been steamed and rolled. And instant..that bears no similarity to oats as far as I am concerned.
In many recipes you could use the Quick Cooking in place of the Rolled oats but do not use instant. Using quick cooking a crust or crumble will be a bit less crunchy and firm than if you used old fashioned rolled oats.

Unless it specifies "steel cut or Irish Oats" most oatmeal is rolled oats. Rolled oats are whole oats that have been soaked in water, rolled and dried. The box does indicate rolled oats.

The same as porridge oats.

Regular oats, whole grain oats, called 'oat groats' are roundish, sort of like popcorn or wheat berries. To make them cook quicker, they steam them until they're soft and then run them between steel rollers to smash them flat. Quaker oatmeal is rolled oats (also known as 'old fashioned oats').

The Quaker box would say Old Fashioned Oats
