Did you know:
Oats are highly nutritious grain with many health benefits. They’re a popular breakfast porridge and are also found in granola, muesli and other foods and snacks. However, you may wonder whether oats and oatmeal contain gluten.
Pure oats are gluten-free and safe for most people with gluten intolerance. However, oats are often contaminated with gluten because they may be processed in the same facilities as gluten-containing grains like wheat, rye and barley. Therefore, it’s unsurprising that studies analyzing regular oat products identified levels of gluten far exceeding the standard for gluten-free foods.
Bottom line is, while there are many benefits to including oats in your gluten-free diet, it’s important to buy only products that are labeled or certifies as gluten-free. This ensures that the oats are pure and uncontaminated.
