The Gluten-Free Verdict on Quaker Oats and General Mills

Patients should remain careful. Even the limit for gluten-free products can be too much for some people

No matter how strict Quaker’s purity protocol is enforced, their products still feature gluten “hotspots” in their oats due to rogue particles of wheat, barley, and rye. This is true for their whole oats, and products made from whole oats, regardless of their gluten-free labeling.

If consumed, patients can still experience gastrointestinal complications, as well as other symptoms of the disease.
