Gluten intolerance is becoming more and more common. Some people can’t live without oat milk and others can’t drink it. I’ve started to avoid all gluten myself and it’s not as hard as you might think so long as you read up on what is gluten free and what isn’t.
Oat milk is naturally not Gluten Free. However after going through some processes it can be gluten free. We recommend choosing trusted brands that provide Gluten free oat milk.
Oat milk is a lactose-free and vegan alternative to cow’s milk. It’s made by grinding oats into a fine powder and then blending it with water, sweetener, and flavorings.
Oats are naturally gluten-free, so oat milk is also free from wheat, barley or rye. If you have celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), you can safely drink oat milk without any concerns about cross-contamination.
If you’re worried about other allergens in oat milk, look for brands that list their ingredients on the label. You may see some brands add a small amount of corn starch or soy lecithin to their product as emulsifiers and stabilizers.
Oats are naturally gluten-free
However, there are many oats that are not certified as gluten-free. Therefore, it’s important to check the label on any oat product before you purchase it to ensure that it is safe for you to consume.
Oats are naturally gluten-free, but they may be contaminated with wheat during processing or transportation. In addition, some people may have an allergy or intolerance to oats and should avoid them at all costs.
Oat milk is safe for people with celiac disease to drink
Oats are naturally gluten-free, so oat milk doesn’t contain any gluten.
- Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition that causes an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Gluten can be found in many foods, including breads, cakes, cookies and pastas.
- People with celiac disease have trouble tolerating gluten because it damages the lining of their small intestine. When undigested gluten passes through the small intestine, it causes inflammation that can lead to diarrhea, weight loss and malnutrition.
Most commercial oat milks are made in factories where other gluten-containing foods are processed
Oat milk is a plant milk made from oats. It’s often used as a substitute for dairy milk by those who are lactose intolerant or vegan. It can also be used as a substitute for other plant milks, such as soy milk, almond milk and rice milk.
Oat milk is not considered to be gluten free, though it’s one of the least allergenic types of grains. However, most commercial oat milks are made in factories where other gluten-containing foods are processed. This means that they’re not safe for people with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS).
Whole grain oats may contain trace amounts of gluten
Oats are naturally gluten-free, but they’re often processed in facilities that handle wheat, barley and rye. If you have celiac disease or a severe gluten intolerance, be sure to buy oats labeled as “certified gluten-free.”
Some brands of oat milk are not made with whole grain oats. These products are typically made with oats that have been processed in the same facilities as other grains. They may also be flavored with barley malt syrup, which is made from barley that contains gluten. Read the ingredients list carefully before buying any oat milk product to make sure it’s safe for you to consume
Look for a “gluten-free” label on the carton of oat milk
Oat milk is a dairy-free, plant-based milk alternative made from oats and water. It’s a popular choice for those who follow a vegan diet and those who are lactose intolerant.
Oat milk is also marketed as being healthier than cow’s milk because it contains soluble fiber, which helps to lower cholesterol levels and balance blood sugar levels. Oats are also rich in antioxidants called avenanthramides, which may help prevent cancer cells from growing.
Oat milk is low in calories and fat, but high in carbohydrates, so it should be used sparingly by those following a ketogenic diet or looking to lose weight.
You can find oat milk at most grocery stores or health food stores. Look for a “gluten-free” label on the carton of oat milk to ensure that it doesn’t contain any gluten ingredients such as barley or rye flour.
Although oats have been a food popular among celiac patients for many years, caution is still warranted when purchasing products. It’s important to read ingredient lists and check with manufacturers to be sure what you’re buying is safe. After all, even if an OTC medication or dietary supplement for celiac disease may be gluten-free, it could still make you sick if the product isn’t sealed properly, or if certain ingredients aren’t pure. In the end, make sure to follow the directions carefully and speak with your doctor before giving oat a try.
