I'm not Celiac, but I had thought regular oats were no big deal until I read that not only can they be cross-contaminated in processing but also during growing/harvesting. This was after having some instant oatmeal that gave me problems. I had used Bob's GF oats to make some cookies & had no problems at all (except for eating too many cookies!).

One day at Target I saw a brand of instant oatmeal I had never seen before-it had low sugar, fruit, and even flaxseed in it. I checked the label to make sure there was no obvious gluten, sugar alcohol, or fiber additives in it. (Those cause same effects as gluten for me) Had some for breakfast & was gassy, bloated, & basically yucky feeling all day. Won't do that again!

Is Quaker making gluten free oats now? If they are not labelled gluten free, they are contaminated with wheat because they are grown rotationally, processed in the field with the same equipment and transported in the same containers as wheat. With oats labeled gluten free all the growing and processing are separate.

I have no issues with GF oats. I love them!! You will have to try them yourself and judge how you feel for yourself. I use Bobs or Quaker. Good luck!!

I can handle Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free oats, but not regular oats.

My sister could eat the gf oats but I think she overdid it because she is now reacting. We need to vary our diets and we can create food sensitivities by eating too much of something.
I seem to fluctuate. For a bit I can eat them, then I need a break. I've been off them now for 4 months. From www.celiac.com "It is now generally accepted that non-contaminated gluten-free oats are safe for a celiac disease diet, with the exception of a small minority of celiacs who may have an additional intolerance to Avenin."

I can eat gf oats - glutenfreeda are the brand I like.

just to clarify to an earlier post: They have to say they are gf. Steel cut does not mean gluten free. To have the gf label they are grown a certain distance from crops containing gluten and they are processed in facilities that prevent cross contamination.

I can have small amounts of certified GF oats. If I eat too much my blood sugar spikes.

Yes most can but be sure they are Gluten Free. I personally eat Quaker with no issue but a lot of people can't. I think if it says steel oats it is GF.

I was reading that most Celiacs can eat oats. Is this true? What is your experience?
