Ok, so I had an "I need this!!" attack yesterday and bought Cap'n Crunch. It looked mostly ok but I was wary of the oat flour. I've decided that I'm ok with oats so I thought I should be fine. I'm wondering if the lovely state of discomfort I'm in today is a result of the oat flour or if I should investigate the rest of the stuff I ate yesterday. I know that the cereal can't be considered gluten free since it's processing but I was curious about the ingredient itself. Thanks for the help :)

Sorry hun but Cap'n Crunch is not gluten free. Commercial oats are contaminated from the harvesting equipment and storage. Unless a product uses certified gluten free oats, it's not gluten free. Then there are the 10% of celiacs/gluten intolerent that can't even eat the pure certified gluten free oats. I am one of the one's that can't tolerate them. I get the same reactions as if I ate wheat, barley, or rye.


Me:
Celiac disease(positive blood work/biopsy- 10/2008), gluten free oat intolerent, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis/Disease, Raynaud's Disease


DS2(age 9):
celiac disease(positive IgA tTG, no biopsy- 11/2010)


DS1(age 13):
repeated negative bloodwork and negative EGD/biopsy. Started on a gluten free trial(8/2011). He has decided to stay gluten free due to all of the improvements he has experienced on the diet.

*sigh* I had a feeling :) So, all oats are considered non-gluten free? I thought that some people could handle commercial oats and some couldn't. I must have been thinking of the fact that some people can't handle "gluten free" oats. That's so much worse! lol Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it.

i have never tried gluten free oats yet -2 years into going gluten free. I have a bread recipe that calls for oat flour. Should I make sure I can tolerate oats before trying oat flour? Are all oat flours naturally gluten free? If I can toleratae oats is it safe to eat them every day? I used to eat oatmeal every morning- love it!

I finally tried gluten-free oatmeal when I had been gluten-free for 9 months. Seemed to do fine with it...and yes, I used to have it frequently for breakfast but don't want to push it yet by having it too often. I also had oatmeal a couple of times this week without a problem. I think you can pretty well assume oats are not safe unless they are specifically gluten-free. Regular oats are not safe due to cross-contamination.

Also, I do have a bread recipe to try that calls for oat flour. When I get around to it, I plan to grind some of my gluten-free oatmeal to make into flour as I don't want to buy yet another bag of flour.

Why don't you test it by having a bowl of oatmeal and see how you do. From what I've read 10 to 15% of celiacs can't handle oats (even the gluten-free variety).

Ya know I had the GlutenFreeda (I believe) brand of instant packets in my hand today at the market and chickened out. I thought about it and did not want to chance being in pain on Mothers Day -i will buy them next week. Maybe I will be one of the lucky ones that can tolerate them. I have asked my GI about trying them and he said I am playing with fire but I know celiacs that eat them fine.

Good idea about not trying a new product right before a holiday! A major holiday for us mothers. Since you've been gluten-free for two years, it would be a good time to try them. Hopefully your GI is wrong. I bought mine in Oct. but didn't try it until Jan.

I've always like the old-fashioned oatmeal (not instant) so I bought Bob's Red Mill - the kind that takes 10 min. to cook. So far, so good, so I'm hoping you'll be able to have oatmeal again, too. I really did miss it.

If you are new to the diet you may want to wait until you are well healed before you try oats. When you do the best way to try is to have the item at least once a day for a week. It can take a while for a reaction to build up and you want to know for sure one way or the other.

smc said that she had been gluten-free for two years so I figured it was a good time to try them. For myself, I'm content to have oatmeal occasionally...don't think I'm brave enough to have it every day though.

I missed that. I agree if she/he has been gluten-free for that long then it would be time to try if oats are really missed.
