Should we have an article for groats, or does it belong in Wiktionary? Brequinda 13:33, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)

+1 for moving to Wiktionary, unless some other background information can be added. cori(talk) 14:52, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

i'm pretty sure groats are hulled but not crushed - but i'm a little hesitant to change the entry. anybody a groat expert out there?

I for one think it could become a decent article, we're concerned more of the history of things like this than a dictionary is. Oh, and I'm adding a {{reqphoto}} to the top of the page. What the heck are these things, anyways? I came here from the table at cereal. BigNate37(T) 16:27, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

not crushed[edit]

I don't think groats are crushed. Fkaser 16:27, 25 January 2007 (UTC)


It would be fine to see the nutritional content of various groats presented in the article.. --Philopedia (talk) 20:37, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Hulled or Dehulled?[edit]

When I looked at the article on dehulling and read this article in its entirety, I was left with the question, do groats have hulls or not? The word "hulled" in the first sentence of the article can be interpreted either way: the grains still have their hulls (as in "the coated chops") or the hulls have been removed (as in "the skinned rabbit").

"groaty dick"[edit]

The article says that groaty pudding is also known as "groaty dick" ... is this vandalism, or can someone provide a encyclopedic citation? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:56, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

NFL players?[edit]

Did anyone actually check the 'source' for the claim that NFL players eat groats for energy? The link is just some guy's blog where he says the exact same thing without citing a source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:09, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Use of singular[edit]

"Groats" redirects to the main article "groat", but OED lists the word only as "groats", with a plural concord. The singular is not used. (talk) 08:40, 31 January 2014 (UTC)


How about a definitive pronunciation? anybody? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:30B:8291:2969:CD85:FBEC:747B:6270 (talk) 04:42, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
