5 Gluten Free Oatmeal Brands That Rock

For a small number of people with Celiac Disease and NCGS, gluten free oatmeal is not a good idea. This small percentage reacts negatively to avenin, a protein found in oats. This means that oats too need to be prohibited from their grain selection. The range of how many people react to oats is not creal, though it is estimated to be around 10% – 15%. Some research suggests that some types of oats are more toxic to people with Celiac disease. Therefore, if you’re a diagnosed celiac, you should consult your physician first and then proceed very cautiously when adding gluten-free oatmeal to your diet. If your celiac disease symptoms return, stop eating the gluten-free oatmeal immediately.

For those of us who are cleared to eat oats, there is a variety of certified gluten-free oatmeals out on the market. These are some of our favorites.
