Here's a link to a source page listing vendors/manufacturers of gluten free oats and oatmeal...Hope this helps. I've used both Bob's Red Mill and Lara's Cream Hill Estates (Canadian Brand) with good results. They are both "certified" gluten free...

Website I have bookmarked is www.celiaccentral.org. The only old-fashioned oats that I have found to be certified GF is Bob's Red Mill brand. The website noted had a very tidy explanation of why anyone with GF issues should not be eating any oats except those that are certified GF. Organic is fine, but the growing, harvesting, cleaning and processing of oats usually is done in such a way as to introduce wheat or barley. In some cases the crop rotation necessary for healthy crops will be in a field that was planted with wheat or barley in the previous year....and stray seed from the earlier crops are harvested. In carrying the crop in trucks that were used for wheat may also cross-contaminate. Bob's Red Mill has set aside specific harvesters, trucks and even a plant to process oats so that they control all aspects of "oat-ness" from planting to packaging. Thanks for the coupon - but no thanks!

Please give the reference URL of the article as well as quoting it. Every article from Celiac orgainizations that I have read contain a conditon that it is Gluten Free oats and not regular oats.
My comments are to protect people who may not realize the difference and suffer as a consequence.

I am glad you too can handle oats. Bailey. A person who is tested after being on oats will know if they can handle oats or not. I know several people who have had great tests while eating oats. People are responsible for their own choices and need to make them after considering everything.

This article is from a Celiac research group.
Opinions About Oats and Celiac Disease
The following are statements about the appropriateness of oats in the celiac diet. The consumption of oats is still being debated for the celiac population. Some authorities feel it is not safe until more studies are done, while others feel it is beneficial to include it in the celiac diet once the digestive system of the patient has stabilized.

Until the debate is resolved, each individual must decide for themselves whether to include oats in their diet. It is recommended that a person should only consider including oats in their diet after healing of the upper intestine from celiac disease has occurred. Only then is it suggested by some to limit consumption to 1/2 cup of dry oats a day. Please consult with your physician before beginning the consumption of oats.

I meant to include this earlier. This isn't the first one who has said the same thing.
glutenfreeinsd.com/about_oats.html

I will add to this I only use a certain brand of oats. I have called the company and they said they would like to be labeled as GF, but because there could be cross contamination they can't. A person has got to do their own research and decide for themselves. I sure don't want what I am saying to cause people to think they can go out and have oats as there could be problems. But again I feel I have the right to say I am one of those who can and there are others. It might be encouraging for some to think maybe, just maybe they can too.

I must say again, if you are eating regular oats you are ingesting gluten. This is an absolute no no for celiacs. Someone may read your comment and think it is ok and as a result may encounter damage without obvious symptoms.

For oats, it is always a cross contamination issue. Wheat is mixed in with the oats from the field to the end product. This brand is NOT gluten free.
Gluten free oats are grown and processed in a dedicated manner to avoid any contaminatin from wheat or barley. A minor percentage of celiacs can tolerate gf oats.

Thanks I sent off for my coupon. Maybe my DH will like it. I do know some of us can eat oats. They have never bothered me and I don't always buy GF ones. I will have to see what their Web site says as far a not being GF or is it cross contamination issues.

There are only a few brands that are gluten free. This is not one of them.
There is too much cross contamination from wheat in most brands of oatmeal, from growing in the same fields as wheat to the grain cars for transportation to processing.

I don't know if this is GF or not, but here's a link to get a coupon for a free box of oatmeal.

If they work out, great. If not, no money lost.

"Sex… could kill you. Do you know what the human body goes through when you have sex? Pupils dilate, arteries constrict, core temperature rises, heart races, blood pressure skyrockets respiration becomes rapid and shallow, the brain fires bursts of electrical impulses from nowhere to nowhere and secretions spit out of every gland, and the muscles tense and spasm like you’re lifting three times your body weight. It’s violent, it’s ugly, and it’s messy, and if God hadn’t made it unbelievably fun…
