They might have blended it after cooking.
Other than that, the smoothest type of oats out there are Scottish Oats.

Dont give up , Iris, on your own investigation. If San Juan was in Puerto Rico, and New York is NYC, you have resources at hand. vheck out local Puerto Rican markets, see what oatmeal brands they sell and ask relatively recent immigrants how they make it on the island.

What about grinding them before cooking? Then you're starting with something more similar to polenta.

Have you tried an overnight soak with yogurt or milk? Everytime I have had them that way they are exceptionally smooth. I heat them...no cold oats for me!
