Whether you like to make traditional porridge from scratch using porridge oats or oatmeal, or you prefer the convenience of a quick-cook porridge sachet or an instant porridge pot, Hamlyns of Scotland have the perfect porridge to get your day off to a great start.
Our traditional range includes Scottish Oatmeal, Scottish Porridge Oats, Scottish Porridge Oats & Bran and Pinhead Oatmeal in a re-sealable tin. All four varieties can be used to make a delicious porridge, each with a different distinctive taste and texture.
As a general rule, the finer the porridge oats or oatmeal, the shorter the cooking time required. The cooking time is reduced further if you choose porridge oats over oatmeal, as the oats are lightly steamed during the milling process before they are rolled.
Our sachets can be prepared in the microwave or on the hob – just add milk and two minutes later you’ll have delicious porridge that’s perfect for breakfast or as a warming snack any time of day. Our porridge pots just require boiling water, and are perfect for anyone looking to enjoy porridge on the move. Both products are available in three delicious varieties – Original, Golden Syrup and Mixed Berry.
