Celiac.com 01/06/2016 - Quaker Oats is launching new, gluten-free versions of several products, including 18 oz. Quaker Quick 1-Minute Oats and Quaker Instant Oatmeal in both 10-count Original and 8-count Maple & Brown Sugar flavors. All Quaker Gluten Free Oats meet the 20 PPM standard set by the FDA.
The announcement is good news for fans of gluten-free foods, and great news for people with celiac disease who find oats to be a healthy part of a gluten-free diet.
Also, about 8-10% of people with celiac disease also seem to have a sensitivity to oats. If you are one of these people, oat products, even gluten-free, might not be right for you, so monitor the situation and do what’s right for you.
For everyone else, gluten-free oats offer a great way to get healthy fiber into the diet, and Quaker’s ready availability makes that decision even easier.
