Gluten Free Oats Go Main Stream

Recommended Posts

I was watching the late night news from Regina, and they were doing a healthe segment on a "niche market". It turns out that there is a company here in Saskatchewan called FamePure. It is now 5 companies and a whole army of growers who are going to manufature things made from oats. Oats that are free from contamination by wheat, rye and barley!! B):o:lol:

They are making oat based muffin/bread and baking mixes, maranades etc...all with steel cut, gluten free oats. And is supposed to actually be affordable! They say that this will help Diabetics and Celiacs alike, as not only will they be gluten free, but oats also help control blood sugar.

Shelly Case is helping them get the product line off the ground. She is the author of The Gluten Free Diet and has her own dietary consulting firm in the city. Also, she worked with Regina Area eatery ZEST. Rob Fuller, head chef at ZEST is also a consulting on the FarmPure menu and product line!

This is HUGE!! I am so excited! I hope they get it into stores soon!

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

This is great news for everyone that can tolerate oats. Newbies need to remember though that the protein in oats does have a similar formation to the gluten proteins. Some of us may not be able tolerate it, paticularly those that are recently diagnosed. When adding oats to our diet we need to add it to our diet in a way that we will easily be able to tell if they are a problem. In other words only add the oats the week you challenge them, don't take any other suspect foods in until you have give them a try for at least 5 days with no ill effects.

How exciting Ryan! It does open alot more choices if you can tolerate them. Good advice Ravenwood. I didn't have oats for a year and tried them little by little and made sure that the oats are safe from cc.
