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.

In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free. I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!! Awesome!!!

If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people...

Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don?t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face. I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks

I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be e...

Hi and Welcome to the Forum. I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya. People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean tha...
