Gluten Free Oats

Recommended Posts

I tried some gluten free oats a couple of days ago and I had no reaction to them at all! Has anyone else taken the risk?

Jay:

There are many, many, many opinions on this topic :)

I have personally done very well with them, but I don't eat them very often. My mom makes me oatmeal/chocolate bars and then I eat a lot. It is so nice to be able to have something else to add to our diet (for those of us who do well with it).

Here are two relatively recent convos on oats that might be of interest to you:

I've been adding the gluten-free oats to various dishes - no problems at all. Haven't had a bowl of oatmeal, though - don't really like oatmeal. I DO like oatmeal cookies and that will probably be next on the list.

2. raised on clean, dedicated ground

3. harvested and transported in dedicated equipment

4. Elisa tested for purity by grower lot and batch

5. processed and packaged at Gifts of Nature's totally dedicated gluten free/wheat free facility

Hello,

i actually live around Boston, Ma and i went the the HealthyVilli meeting just last month, they are the local and possibly the biggest support group that i know of in the country. And the oats subject was talked about. They are considering Oats safe to Celiacs, however there are a few things to keep in mind.

1- Not everyone is going to agree with it.

2- You must buy it from the few companies that have no/low risk of CC (stay away from Quaker Oats or other main stream products)

3- Introduce it to your diet small amounts at a time, because it can cause gluten like symptoms b/c they are loaded with fiber. So you may get bloated all of a sudden and think you might have gotten glutened when in fact its the fiber.

4- Dont over do it (ie eating 20 oatmeal cookies in one sitting, although that would be nice :rolleyes: )

Here is one company that were selling their oats at the meeting.

ENJOY!

I also have eaten gluten-free oats without reacting (from www.glutenfreeoats.com), but only 1/4 c. I love oats and oatmeal, so I was wondering what the limit was on how much I could eat, assuming I build up gradually? I'd read that only 1/4 c. a few times a week was recommended, but I'm wondering why? If there is no CC with gluten-free oats and my body doesn't react to avenin, why do I have to limit the amount I eat?

I eat Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Oats on occasion, but if I eat them everyday they make me naceous. I'd advice starting off in a small quantity and see how you react to them.
