Oats that are not labeled gluten-free have gluten. If you have celiac disease (like me) you have to use gluten free oats. Bob’s are completely gluten free. From the website:
For decades, folks with Celiac Disease and other gluten intolerances had to bid a difficult adieu to oats, by no fault of oats’ own. Inherently gluten free, oats were long susceptible to cross-contamination with gluten-containing grains at farm, storage, or transportation stages of processing. Bob’s Red Mill is proud to be a trusted source for gluten free oats, working with farmers who understand the concern and the need to keep grains separate, avoiding cross-contamination. At the mill, we test every load we receive for gluten before the oats even enter our gluten free processing facility. We test again during processing, and finally, we test a third time as the oats are being packaged to be sent to store shelves.
