Many people often ask if oatmeal is gluten free. This is a great question to ask if you are dealing with a gluten allergy or you are concerned that you may be dealing with an allergy of this type.

What you will find is that real, pure, oatmeal is going to have gluten in it. But, most of the oatmeal that you will be able to purchase at your local store is not going to be pure. Much of this has been crossed with wheat and barley so it is not going to be fully oats.

Therefore, these are not going to be safe for someone that should be on a gluten free diet.It will be possible for you to purchase gluten free oatmeal but it may be even more interesting for you to know that some studies have shown that oats do not cause an elevation in gluten antibodies.

If you are willing to follow this study, and you want to consume oats, you will want to keep in mind the fact that some studies that have been conducted have shown that there are some brands of oats that have been known to show an elevation. When you stop and consider these two very different studies it would be important for you to determine if you really want to consume oats that badly.

Do you want to take the chance of inducing any of the symptoms that you may have experienced in the past?Now you know that pure oatmeal, that has not been contaminated with any other wheat or barley, is free of gluten. You have also heard of studies that claim you may be able to consume oats because they are not going to increase your antibodies.

Still, some people do not want to chance it because they do not want to face any of the uncomfortable symptoms that they may have experienced in the past. But, what if you were able to consume small amounts of oats and have no symptoms? In 2003 the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics stated that it would be alright for those with celiac, or a gluten allergy, to consume oats.

However, it was recommended that they consume lower amounts than they may have in the past. The recommended amount was not more than ½ cup dry.Those individuals that do not want to take any chances, but still want to consume oatmeal, will want to think about searching for 100% pure oatmeal.

It will be guaranteed that it has not been contaminated in any way. It will be very easy to do this if you avoid any bins that have bulk oats in them. Keep that in mind when you are shopping. As you are looking for oats you will also want to keep your eyes open for the label that says gluten free.

Finally, you will find that it is not appropriate for you to order oatmeal when you are out in a restaurant because you will never know if it is pure or not.
