Hello,

I picked up a package of the Almond Horns, after reading the ingredients, which are almond paste, organic cane sugar, almonds and egg white. And after seeing the Celeic Spruce Association symbol, I was sure they were safe.

Well, had one, and the acid indegestion, and bloatedness started, also the muscle soreness, and the pain on my right side. I called them yesterday, and it turns out that they also make cookies with gluten-free Oats. The gentelman I talked to, identefied himself as "the husband", and pretty much told me that I should stay away from the horns, as they do not clean the lines or equipment used between production of the cookies and the horns. He also stated that his wife, whom I am assuming is Aleia, had problem with gluten-free Oats at first just because she had not had it for so long, but that she eventually got used to it.

Any one else out here sensitive to gluten-free Oats?

I have had those cookies and love them....the brand is very, very good. However, I can tolerate gluten-free oats just fine but I ate a lot of oatmeal before I was diagnosed. I am very sensitive also but have never had a problem with any of their cookies. They do make an oatmeal raisin one which probably is what bothered you. I don't know how long you have been gluten-free but you may want to try and re-introduce oatmeal at a later date, if you are new to this. Sometimes it's the fiber that bothers people and they need more healing time before trying them.

If you have been avoiding oats for a long time, you may have to build a tolerance to them again. The suggested amount is very small, just under 3 Tablespoons for your first challenge. Then increase the amount slowly. Some Celiacs can not tolerate oats at all because the protein chain is too similar to gluten.

Yes they are delicious, I was so excited to find a cookie that tasted soo good! I did not have the Oatmeal Raisin, only the Almond Horns however. I have never been able to re-introduce Oats back in to my diet since they came out with the gluten-free Oats, my first try..... had a full Gluten attack, not fun, and that was with GlutenFreeda Oatmeal. I was diagnosed a little over 5 years, and have not had Oats since.

That is good to know, thank you. I think I am going to wait a while, and then try your suggestion, I really miss having Oats.
