Laban replied to Laban's topic in Gluten-Free Ingredients & Food Labeling IssuesSorry but I did not know of this "well known fact about oats" I have not long been diagnosed and trusted this company !
In australia they sell these oats as " gloriously uncontaminated oats " their website states the oats are gluten free .I am a celiac,I tried these oats and got sick for 10 days losing 4.5 kilos,I contacted these guys and here is a copy of the letter they sent me..I personally don't think 1 in 20 is an exceptable risk!!!!also this should be on the packaging!!! "We are aware from studies conducted in the US that 1 in 20 coeliacs had a reaction to the Oats, which is similar to what you experienced. As it was such a small number the States and other countries have chosen to legislate that they be labelled "Gluten Free", however we are unable to make any claims of this nature in Australia which is why we label the oats, Uncontaminated."Sadly I guess you fall into the 1 in 20."
