Make Sure Your Oats are Really Gluten-free!

Celiac.com 08/31/2016 - Oats are traditionally one of the more commonly contaminated gluten-free grains on the market.

According to Gluten Free Watchdog, "gluten-free" foods made with oat ingredients are more commonly contaminated than foods made with other "gluten-free" grains. In light of their survey results, people with a high sensitivity to gluten might want to consider taking some extra steps to make sure their oats are truly gluten-free.

The solution? Know your oats! To be sure that your oats are safe, Gluten Free Watchdog recommends following these easy extra steps:

1) Make sure you are sourcing oats from a supplier of purity protocol oats, such as GF Harvest, Avena, or Montana Gluten-Free. Currently, Gluten Free Watchdog does not recommend any of the commercial suppliers of mechanically and optically sorted oats, such as Grain Millers or LaCrosse Milling.

2) Ask for test results. Regardless of where you source oats, ask your supplier to provide you with test results, including how frequently oats are tested and what assay is used for testing.

3) Test the oats yourself. There is no such thing as too much testing. If you really want to be sure, you can send samples of oats to a third party lab for testing using the sandwich R5 ELISA and cocktail extraction. Labs include Bia Diagnostics and FARRP.

Having been on a GF diet for 30+ years the ONLY GF oats I have NOT been sick on OR TRUST are the GF oats raised in Wyoming by Sutton & his family. ALL those others made me ill and on Serious Pain medication from Morephine to Codeine!

Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than...

Thank you for your reply. I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.

LOL, re: trousers vs. pants. Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front. I also read that Vit D helps digestion; can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin. My Dr. just told me to res...

I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.

A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be tak...
