oatmeal

[AS. ate, oat, + mele, meal]
Ground, rolled, or steel-cut oats from which a cereal can be made. Oatmeal has several therapeutic uses. In the diet, it provides fiber, lowers cholesterol levels, and can safely be consumed by patients with wheat allergies or celiac sprue because it has no gliaden. Oatmeal is also sometimes used in tepid baths or soaps to sooth inflamed or irritated skin.
