Who Eats Oats?

Recommended Posts

I bought a pack of Bob's Red Mill gluten-free 100% pure oats. The description of the growing and processing sounds perfect and they were delicious... after not having oatmeal for 6 years! They looked like kasha (buckwheat groats) and took 20 min. to cook. I didn't eat any more because I wanted to see if I'd react in any way. I didn't!

Anyone eat oats??

I've tried once or twice and my stomach always feels like a brick the next day. But I have issues beyond just gluten too.


Gluten Free since 2003

I occasionally eat the certified gluten free oats. I have used the ones from BRM, Gifts of nature and glutenfreeoats.com. I seem to tolerate them quite well. My son, however, does not do well with them. If we could both handle them, I would probably use them more.

The leaflet that came with one of the types I bought recommended starting slowly with one serving of 1/2 cup cooked a few times a week, and then gradually biulding up to more often. Don't go all crazy with those oats now. :)

I have tried to re-introduce them several times and just don't tolerate them which is a real shame because I love oats...

I eat them(certified gluten-free only! of course) without problem. We use them in apple crisp topping, although the Bob's, in our opinion, would be better pulsed once or twice as they are thicker than Gifts of Nature. Also add to a bread recipe a small amount of oats that have been pulsed in the processor.

We eat the Bob's gluten-free oats (reg & steel cut) frequently. We didn't have much of an issue because the kids have a pretty high fiber diet anyway. My dd's fav is still the Mighty Tasty gluten-free hot cereal from Bob's.

I could eat oats for the first year I was gluten-free. After one year I started getting the same old symptoms, mainly fatigue. All that cleared up when I cut out oats. I'm not sure if it was because of the oats themselves or because of contamination, but I've been to scared to try again.

I itch unmercifully when I eat oats. I am not a diagnosed celiac but react to them in the same way I react to gluten and eggs. I am puzzled by it all. (never been tested either). I only eat them if I am up to itching, which isn't very often. I'd rather eat eggs if I want to battle with symptoms. It's a tough one because they make such a healthful breakfast....
