What Is the Difference between Oats and Wheat?

Answer

There are quite a number of differences between wheat and oats. One of them is that while oats are a cereal species that has been grown to yield its seeds, wheat is a type of grass and is nowadays ranked as the third most produced cereal-like product, following maize and rice. On the other hand, wheat products are only restricted to baking because this grass is highly fermentable but oats are typically eaten by humans as oatmeal or rolled oats.
