Are Oats Gluten Free?

Are oats gluten free?

Oats are inherently gluten free.

However, most oats on the market are grown near wheat and processed in facilities that also process wheat products.

Oats may be harmful to someone with Celiac disease or a wheat allergy due to cross contamination.

Bob’s Red Mill does produce a gluten-free oat available in most grocery and health food stores. I have heard from Celiacs that say they love the gluten-free oats and I have also heard from Celiacs that have discomfort after eating the gluten-free oats. The choice is yours.
