Probably not: Oats and oatmeal are listed as a gluten-containing grain. More recent reports say that oats don't have the gluten proteins but have small amounts of another protein that may cause reactions in some celiac disease patients.

So, "pure" oats probably are ok. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
