Unknowingly Ate Oats....what's Your Opinion?
0

5 posts in this topic

I went to Whole Foods last night and when I came home I tried some of the new stuff I bought. Later that night I felt severely nauseous. Today I was eating some of the same cookies I tried last night and noticed they had oats in them. My heart like flipped. It said there was 1/28 cup of gluten free oats in each serving. I musta eaten 6 cookies! now I'm feeling really sick again.

Even if they're gluten free oats, I know some people can't tolerate them. If I'm one of those who can't tolerate them, will it cause damage to my intestines or will it just make me feel sick?

Thanks:)

Sorry you're sick. Unfortunately if you're one of those who can't tolerate oats there is a reasonable chance they will damage your intestines the same as gluten would. You need to avoid them as a gluten grain. Don't panic about your mistake though. One mistake will not set your healing back very far, and you wouldn't have figured it out without trying the oats.

Man I was hoping there'd be no damage!:P well atleast I know I can't tolerate oats! Also, although I'm really nauseous and tired, I don't have any of the other symptoms like when I get glutened. Is it possible that I'm just intolerant of oats or is it normal to have different symptoms of a "glutening" with oats? I know that regular oats can be CCed but why do gluten free oats bother some people and not others ? Is there a reason? And what brands may have CC with oats? I know I've heard of one but can't remember:P

I've learnt that I can tolerate oats only around the equivalent of 70-75 grams....which is just short of a bowl of porridge :P

Brands that may have CC'd oats, are Quaker, Scot's, and practically all brands unless they're labelled as non-cc'd, like Cream Hill and Only Oats. I hope you feel better!

Oats can cause the same symptoms.

The same reason some people have celiac and others don't have celiac. We aren't all the same.

Bob's Red Mill claims to have gluten fee oats. Any brands that aren't marked gluten-free are potentially CC'd. Bob's Red Mill has non-gluten-free versions of oats also.
