    Quaker Oats Launches Gluten-free Products

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    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.

    Photo: CC--amber.kennedyThe 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.

    One thing to remember is that most people tolerate oats just fine, but if you’re not used to eating high fiber foods, you may want to start slow and see how your body adjusts to oats in your 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.

    Are you excited about gluten-free Quaker Oats products?

    Individual boxes of Cheerios were not tested. A large amount of boxes were combined and a sample from that was tested. The ppm was an average, which means there may have been boxes that had more than 20 ppm. There was no way of knowing.

    This is not a comment on the product but just to say I am one of the celiacs that cannot eat oats. My doctors told me it was OK to eat gluten-free oats occasionally and the few times I did (on rare occasions) I developed dermatitis herpetiformis. I quickly put two-and-two together and stopped eating oats. No oats, no DH. I do miss them.....

    I can not eat oats at all. I purchased a product that did not have Oats in it prior. I was wondering why I was having stomach cramps and living in the bathroom again. After going over what I had eaten; I re-read the ingredients and found cats were introduced. I had to throw the box out. I am hoping that all companies won't jump on the bandwagon to push Oats in all the food. I am a diagnosed celiac.

    As a celiac myself, I to go into shock being extremely sensitive to gluten.

    The disease itself was slowly killing me until diagnosed but it has damaged my vital organs inside.

    Liver disease, thyroid disease, chronic fatigue and diabetes. Never had these issues before.

    I must get to the emergency room when not knowing I ingested gluten.

    However I have tried the Quaker oats with no side affects. So far so good.
