American Dietetic Association Concludes Uncontaminated Oats Safe for those with Celiac Disease

Celiac.com 3/14/2003 - After conducting an extensive review of the medical literature concerning the safety of oats for people with celiac disease, the American Dietetic Association recently concluded that even though oats are not yet endorsed as safe for people with celiac disease by doctors and support groups in the USA, they should, however, be safe for celiacs who choose to consume them if they limit their consumption to amounts found to be safe in several studies (approximately one-half cup of dry whole-grain rolled oats per day). Ideally, they also should be advised to consume only those products tested and found to be free of contamination. If this is not possible, patients should be counseled on steps they can take to help reduce their chances of consuming contaminated oat products (e.g., avoiding oats sold in bulk from bins, determining from manufacturers whether a dedicated line or facility is used for processing). In addition, patients should be advised to discuss any dietary changes with their physicians.

The American Dietetic Associations conditional acceptance of oats as safe for people with celiac disease is another big step forward for celiacs in the USA.

I have spoken to manufacturer of Cheerios cereal, and the woman with whom I spoke with had argued with me re: oats in their cereal IS GLUTEN FREE! I know from my conversations with specialists at Good Health that Oats are NOT FOR people who have celiac disease. I have found products that I can have that say "CERTIFIED GLUTEN-FREE OATS"!
Cheerios cereal DOES NOT SAY: "GLUTEN-FREE OATS" it only says: Simply the best gluten-free oats.....which is not accurate! Why do these people claim that their cereal is gluten-free when IT IS NOT! When I spoke to the rep at Cheerios , she was adamant that I was crazy! It does not say CERTIFIED GLUTEN-FREE OATS! I informed her that I would will be calling the FDA to report this false accusation, and to order Cheerios to fix their bogus claim of gluten-free oats.
