I am sensitive to the gluten free oat cross contamination also. It kept me sick for 8 months with fat malabsorption, reflux, diarrhea, caused inflammation and stomach ulcer (showed up on scope) before I figured that out. I avoided the oats but didn't think to ask about CC.
I avoid any gluten free product that has potential oat CC. There are brands I do trust.
You'll just have to try them to see how your body reacts. There are plenty of celiacs/gluten intolerent people that eat them without incident.
Celiac disease(positive blood work/biopsy- 10/2008), gluten free oat intolerent, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis/Disease, Raynaud's Disease
celiac disease(positive IgA tTG, no biopsy- 11/2010)
repeated negative bloodwork and negative EGD/biopsy. Started on a gluten free trial(8/2011). He has decided to stay gluten free due to all of the improvements he has experienced on the diet.

It is a gluten reaction, complete with TTG antibodies and villous atrophy. I suppose people could be oat intolerant too, but the real concern is that oats are so closely related to wheat that some celiacs react as if they are a gluten grain.
I know that about 10-15% of Celiac's react to gluten-free oats because of the avenin in it...my question is, is the reaction different than a gluten one? My gluten reactions are usually very neuro/mental so if the avenin reaction is a different kind of reaction, then I wouldn't mind taking the risk because there's been some products recently that have certified gluten-free oats that I've been wanting to try
If I recall, CSA recommends you wait a full year after going gluten-free before you introduce oats.
I would like to turn this question around. I have Celiac Disease but without telling symptoms. Therefore I am careful about not eating gluten because I know it is damaging to my intestines, but have no way to know if I accidentally consumed it. Does avenin work the same way? Should I be avoiding gluten-free oats just in case? Or is the reaction to gluten-free oats strictly one of discomfort?
Then you're supposed to go to the doctor and get re-tested for antibodies after you've been eating oats for a few months. As I mentioned above, it's possible to have a celiac reaction to avenin.
