Instant Oatmeal

Recommended Posts

I know that some people say oats are OK if they are "pure" oats, and that the main reason some are not good is cross contamination. Does anyone know of any "pure" oats instant oatmeal packets? I used to eat the Quaker Weight Control oatmeal packets everyday, and no I can't because they have barley gluten in them. SO just wondering if anyone else eats oats and which type they eat. I bought a brand at whole foods, the packets, but I am not sure if they are OK or not.

Thanks!

Joanne

I don't eat oats as a cereal, but do use some safe rolled oats in cooking. I would think that, unless the label says something like the oats are certified gluten-free, that just ordinary oat products would not be safe simply because of cross contamination, even if they are organic.

The certified gluten-free rolled oats are grown on dedicated ground, and are harvested and packaged in totally gluten-free facilities. The brand I have is "Gifts of Nature, Inc."

I haven't taken a chance with oats yet, but I always liked making my own. The packets never tasted good - like it's just cheap junk. Given the ingredient in most instant stuff, I'd never want it anyway.

I'd flavor oats with applesauce, berries, banana, raisins, nuts, cinnamon, margarine/butter, etc. All depends on what sounds good on the occasion. Sometimes a pinch of salt. Nothing like homemade goodness...gee, I could sure go for some right now :rolleyes:

Anyway, as ArtGirl pointed out, they'd have to specify processing in a gluten-free facility, or you'd be subject to CC. Not to mention any questionable ingredients.
