Are Oats Safe To Eat?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I really miss oats in breakfast cereal! I am in Australia and we are told that the oats cannot be guaranteed gluten-free because of crops sharing the same land (rotation).

Are oats safe to eat anywhere else in the world?

I am in the US and I buy Gifts of Nature certified gluten-free oats, on-line. I have never had a problem with these and am an extremely sensitive Celiac. I do not have a problem with the oat protein or the amount of fiber in oatmeal. You could probably order them also and give them a try. There is no CC with these oats.

There are appx, 10-15% of people with celiac that do not tolerate even certified gluten free oats. I don't tolerate them or cross contamination from them in some gluten free products.

I miss oats too. Especially steel cut oats.

I have found this place online http://www.wheatfree.com.au/site/1446344/page/1128635 and it seems to be the only place in Australia that sells uncontaminated oats. They can't label them "gluten free" because of the Australian labelling laws but that is essentially what they are.

I haven't tried them yet because my Coeliac disease is not under control. I want to wait until all my tests start coming back as normal before I try oats... and even then I'm not sure if it is a good idea. The only way you can know for sure that you can tolerate them is by having a biopsy after you have been eating them for a while. I might just stick to my rice porridge.

Interested to read the posts.

I have biopsy-diagnosed sprue and my gi doc said i may not be able to tolerate them. i just stay away from them, but wish I could have them!

Thanks for all the posts. I just got blood results back today and they are normal, so perhaps I could try some oats. I can't wait to go shopping! Yay!

You have made my day!!!! I'm also in Australia and I'd reconciled myself to never having oats again.
