Is Oatmeal Gluten Free?
The short answer is yes, pure, non-contaminated oats are gluten-free. However, a lot of the oatmeal brands on the market are not pure and may contain oats that have been cross-contaminated with wheat, barley or rye. This cross-contamination with grains that do have gluten, means that you need to check labels very carefully in order to make sure they will fit into your gluten-free diet. Unfortunately, oats can also be cross-contaminated in the field before they ever become oatmeal, so be sure to choose a variety of oatmeal that has been certified gluten-free.
