About Gluten

What is Gluten?
Gluten is a form of protein found in many grains, such as wheat, barley (malt), and rye.

While some say oats do not contain gluten, it is recommended to avoid them for a truly gluten free diet. In some cases, oats are grown in the same fields as other grains and may contain some form of gluten.
