Helpful hints and tips
Despite popular belief, oats are gluten-free. They can sometimes have trace elements of gluten if they are processed in factories that also process wheat, barley or rye. Anyone who has coeliac disease or extreme gluten sensitivities should purchase oats that are processed in factories that are free from gluten, but for everyone else, normal whole oats are fine to use.
