Can Any Of The Celiac Or Gluten Intolerant Kids Handle Oats?

Recommended Posts

Hi

I understand from reading this site that ALL gluten should be removed from the diet

Just curious if any kids with gluten intolerance can handle oats..but not rye, barley, wheat etc??

thanks, Kim

boht my kids can eat scottish oatmeal (found it in health food store).

Recently we tried Honeycomb cereal* as I saw they add oat flour and it is the last ingredient, otherwise no gluten. My daughter is very sensitive and shows outward symptoms with cc. So far, neither child has had any problem with it.

* ingredients in cereal can vary between US nad Canada. I live in Canada

The biggest problem with oats is that there is almost always cross contamination with wheat in the milling process. So you can't just get Quaker oats. You have to get either oats from a company that makes only gluten free oats, such as glutenfreeoats.com, or one of the irish or scottish oats brands (not familiar with these but maybe someone can give you some brands to look for). I orders some from glutenfreeoats, but I haven't tried them yet. I figure the only way to find out if I react to the oats themselves or if it's the CC from processing, is to try the completely gluten-free kind at least once.

I tried the certified gluten-free oats and my daughter is doing just fine on them :)

They are expensive so its only going to be an occasional treat... but hey... I like the idea of OATMEAL being a treat! :)

I haven't tried yet. I'm not sure I want to. She never seemed to like oats before, so I don't think it makes any difference to her. Now... my younger son, he might be a different story. I'll wait a while, but may eventually try. I do have some Scottish oatmeal in the cupboard. Dh loves the stuff.

Oats would improve some baking. Is McCanns gluten free?

All of the US brands are contaminated with wheat so if you have to eat oats go for ones that are grown, transported, and in a facility by themselves. Some people have reactions to even pure oats so you don't have any guarantee...some people get damage from the protein in pure oats called avenin. I still stay away from oats

I called McCanns and asked this question. They said that they can say that their oats are not processed with wheat but that they cannot say for sure if they were grown along side oats. So I guess there is still some change of CC.

I haven't tried it with Owen and I can't find any oatmeal over here that is gluten-free. I know though that he did horrible with the gerber baby cereal oatmeal before we knew he was reacting to gluten.
