TEN WHOLE GRAINS. Cooked and Uncooked?

I’ve started giving Kai Bob’s Red Mill WHOLE GRAIN 10 GRAIN HOT CEREAL and he loves it. I’ve only given it to him cooked (and cooled). I am wondering if he could have it uncooked (raw) also? The ingredients are...Whole Grain Wheat, Whole Grain Rye, Corn Grits, Whole Grain Triticale (Wheat), Whole Grain Oats, Soy Beans, Whole Grain Millet, Barley, Whole Grain Brown Rice, Oat Bran and Flaxseed Meal. I would appreciate advice.

laracroft will become famous soon enough

I honestly don't know, but I wouldn't risk it? The thing that jumped out at me is that it has soy beans in it, and I know beans are supposed to be cooked in general. Don't know about soy in particular, though. And I don't know about things like corn grits or wheat. I think before you fed it raw you'd have to look up each individual ingredient to see if it'd be a problem. Also, in general I wouldn't feed him much of this. I don't think it's bad for him, but most of his diet should be veggies, not grains, and if he's filling up on this he'll likely eat less veggies. Maybe save it for a treat?

Thumbs up

I would find out about soy in the raw form. It seems like I read somewhere that soy must be cooked. I will see if I can find out.

Thank you for your reply. I only give it to Kai cooked and only once to twice a week for dinner along with his veggies. I normally hand feed his dinner so he always gets his veggies before sweet potatoes, rice, or anything else. I always save the foods he likes best for last.
