In Australia, products containing Oats cannot be labelled gluten free. Oats contain a protein called Avenin which can trigger the same auto-immune response as gluten in those with coeliac disease. Oats should not be consumed by those with coeliac disease unless they have completed the ‘Oat Challenge’ through their doctor.
GF Pantry prides itself of being the leading source of ‘safe’ gluten free food options in Australia for those with coeliac disease. To maintain this position, we have decided not to stock 'gluten free' Oats.
