Oatstraw, also known as avena, is a byproduct of harvesting oats. Specifically, it is the green grass-like top of the plant referred to as being in the “milky stage” before the grain has fully ripened. For this reason, oat straw is often called milky oats.

Powdered oat straw is rich in vitamins and nutrients and may be added to smoothies and other foods. Ground oatstraw is also a traditional bath herb used to soften skin and relief itching from sunburn and other minor irritations.

what else you should know


Oatstraw, also called wild oats and milky oats, consists of the aerial parts of the oat plant without the grain. Dried and powdered oatstraw is a convenient form of the herb that makes it easy to incorporate into the diet. In addition to simply adding to foods, oatstraw powder can be put into capsules and taken as a dietary supplement.

Like alfalfa, oatstraw is used to make hay for use as animal feed and bedding. It is also used as construction material to build straw bale houses and to produce composite lumber and biofuels.
