I am wondering how the price compares to other gluten-free oats.

That is great news. The Glutenfreeda is pricey. I usually just get BRM, but if these are in one serving packs, it would be very helpful

for travel. Thank for posting this, K!  :)

I heard this was coming out a while back... I wonder what the price point and scope of availability is going to be.  I currently pay about a dollar per pouch for Bakery on Main oatmeal (6 count packets box) and I really like it.

Hi! Chex oatmeal was on sale two weeks ago in Pathmark. Price 2 for $5. On A ma zon they are asking $13,?? for one. It is a big different. It's better to buy them in regular grocery store.

i picked up some of the plain yesterday.  i can't remember what the price was, so it must have been not that expensive.  they had it at the kroger beside the 'regular' instant oatmeal in the cereal aisle.  i hope i can eat it (trying it again.  it's been another year since i tried oats)

I did not look at the price, i just saw they were there...but you are right, that is a lot for oatmeal.  :D Apparently people are willing to pay for it, as they have already sold out!

I can't remember the price I paid.  (sale and an instant coupon)

 

I like the glutenfreeda more.  Probably because I have been eating that brand for ?? years.

I found it today at Smith's which is a Kroger brand store. On sale for $3! It ended up in the cart so fast I think I made my husband's head spin. :lol: He's like "zomg $3 for 6 packs of oatmeal!" :blink: And I was like "you have NO IDEA how cheap that is." Since he knows what's good for him he shut up and kept walking. :P

I got a 6 pack to try, figuring the packets would be good to have for travel.. 2 plain, 2 cinnamon and 2 maple something or other......hubs liked it, but I thought the flavored ones were very sweet. IMHO

question for those who have had this and are very sensitive. did you react at all? I just saw it today and it's about half the price of what I usually get which is Eco Planet. that box says certified gluten-free and the Chex oatmeal just says gluten-free.

 

Thanks in advance

I bought the maple flavor and finally tried it.  I was kind of surprised that it was only 12 grams of sugar for how sweeeeeet it is.  But it's fantastic.  I bought it when it was so new that Dillons didn't even have a price sticker out.  I just knew I wanted it!  (And then didn't eat it, of course.)

The brown sugar is very sweet, too sweet for me, about 30 mins after eating it I had bad stomach cramps but they passed after 10 mins or so. I have used the plain packets in recipes and had mild discomfort I may have just developed an issue with oats though. I haven't eaten them but a handful of times since the diet change. I can't try the cinnamon because I am allergic.

I've had them (the cinnamon one) and have had no issues. The brown sugar one sounded rather sweet to me though.

    • Did you know that there are so many issues and questions surrounding celiac disease that even doctors who specialize in it find that the scientific data changes every six months, and this includes research data, new diagnostic and testing recommendations, and its connections to other diseases and conditions. In fact, many of us who think we have "arrived" and know it all might actually need a refresher course on the disease. View the full article
    • Apologies for my over-reaction.  As the shampoo exposure was only for a couple week or so, I doubt any lab tests would have indicated exposure. Unfortunately, since I didn't have the antibodies, I can only rely on my symptoms to tell me if I've been exposed. I'm fortunate enough that eliminating gluten (and dairy) from my diet completely fixed my problems. I have had no lingering systems, and now that I have been gluten free for a while, when I do get gluten I have a very clear reaction (and a distinct reaction to dairy) that follows a fairly predictable timeline. This has accidentally been tested a couple of times. For example, early on before I was better at reading labels I grabbed some cookies at the grocery store that I thought were gluten free (the company produces both a normal and gluten-free version, and this was before I learned to avoid shared facilities). I had grabbed the wrong bag but I didn't figure it out until about a week of feeling crappy had passed and I went searching for a culprit. Things like this have happened a couple of times, where I accidentally did a blinded experiment on myself. The symptoms are consistent, and resolve once I remove the offending item. So when I recognized my symptoms as the result of gluten, I went looking for a culprit and I found the shampoo and conditioner. I removed them and then I got better.  My problems are largely systemic. I wouldn't be surprised if I don't actually have celiac but some other immune mediated reaction that hasn't been defined, but calling it celiac is the best way to get people to take my needs seriously (which I'm sure you understand). Unfortunately, my problems don't seem to fit into any particular diagnostic bucket, so I've learned not to rely on the official medical terms and just go with what works. I'm lucky to have had doctors who think the same way, else they might have told me that I didn't need to go gluten free once I failed to show clear-cut celiac. Maybe I'm pre-celiac, maybe it's the much maligned NCGS, or it's all related to leaky gut (I am eagerly awaiting the FDA approval of larazotide so that I can get a doctor to give me some, I think it might do me a lot of good). All I know is that when I went gluten and dairy free it literally changed my life.  In general it seems that gluten exposure causes a generalized inflammatory response. I get some inflammation in my gut that manifests as reflux, acid indigestion (what I call "fake hunger"), and a little bit of urgency and unpredictability with regards to bathroom needs, but if that were the only problem, I think I could live with it. I also get headaches, brain fog, my depression/anxiety gets triggered to a scary degree, arthritis, muscle aches, and then, the clincher, muscles spasms in my upper back and neck that have been known to lay me out for a couple of days while I wait for the muscle relaxants to help me heal. The muscle spasms, arthritis and brain fog are the most recognizable and are usually what cue me in that I got glutened, especially the spasms.  Again, sorry for being oversensitive. I should have known better, since this is such a supportive community.  
    • I appreciate your point. However, constancy of my celiac symptoms indicates that I have had the disease for at least three years - while I have never experienced any food allergies in that time. Although I will keep an eye on any emerging allergies, I believe my current fatigue is due to nutritional deficiency, because the only exogenous change in my life style has been the transition to gluten free diet.   Yes, I certainly need to keep a food diary. Thanks again for the advice.
    • In many cases no.....I consume heavy magnesium foods like pumpkin seeds, cocoa nibs etc....and still need 2-3x the dose of magnesium recommendations. Going on more of what poster boy said. You dose magnesium to tolerance with citrate like Natural Vitality Calm you start off small partial doses and slow ramp up....it can hit you hard causing gas and D if you go to quick into it. You dose citrate to tolerance meaning you slowly up your dose til you get loose stools...then back down a bit. You should have vivid dreams with a good dosing....also if it becomes to harsh or you can not handle citrate there is Doctors Best Glycinate...it does not have the gut effects at all...but the dreams and how much it makes you relax is more more felt.   ...with this disease you can have a food intolerance or allergy crop up out of the blue....like no where. You have a autoimmune disease....celiac it effects your immune system and can make it really wonky. Like it seems to always be on guard like a sleep deprived sentry on stim packs...jumps at everything and shoots it. If you get sick, eat something odd or harsh you system might red flag it as a issue for awhile and go bonkers....keep a food diary and try a food rotation in the mean time...OH as a example to this, I was fine with chia seeds last week...I got a cold over the weekend....same bag, same brand same way....withing 30mins I now puke if I eat them...new intolerance.....I also am finding jalapenos/paprika making it sleepy tired....so I am removing them both for a few months from my diet and changing to other sources for fats/fiber and vitamin A/C til I get over that issue.....these things just happen. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Hi Isabel, Your body needs nutrients to grow.  Nutrients not absorbed well when we have celiac disease damage in our guts.   But, if you do a good job of avoiding gluten, the gut damage should heal and you will be able to absorb nutrients again. The thing to remember is celiac disease is an immune system reaction.  Immune reactions are very sensitive and just a tiny amount of gluten can get them going.   And they can last for months.  So it;s very important to avoid all gluten all the time, to keep the immune reaction down.  Keeping the immune reaction down keeps the damage down, and the healing can keep up. You may start to grow more if you can absorb nutrients better.  Some extra vitamin pills might be a good idea.  Your doctor should know.
