GK Gluten Free Foods introduced Gloriously Free Uncontaminated Oats to Australian consumers in 2009. Customers were eager to try this product as it had just received a gluten free status in the USA. However it is important to note that here in Australia, you cannot claim a product that contains oats to be gluten free. GF Oats can be labeled “Low Gluten” due to the fact that each batch is tested to show that there is no gluten contamination = <5ppm. Mainstream oats is often contaminated at the farm level where growers also process crops of wheat, rye or barley.
GF Oats are uniquely uncontaminated from the gluten found in wheat, rye and barley. Oats contain a strain of protein called Avenin, however a large body of scientific evidence accumulated over 15 years has determined that oats is not related to the gluten containing grains. They don’t contain gluten but rather proteins that are non-toxic and are tolerated by those who are following strict gluten free protocols. www.coeliac.org.au
The Coeliac Society of Australia advises that 1 in 5 of those suffering from Coeliac disease, may react to these oats. If you have Coeliac Disease please seek medical advice prior to the consumption of this product.

What Can I Eat has been working hard for over 5 years developing a product list that assists you in loving your food, whilst remaining healthy and feeling energized throughout your busy day. We recommend and refer our followers to specialty foods available within the Australian marketplace.
Along the way, we have been intensively gathering information from you the consumer regarding your interest in alternative products for personal care and home care. In addition to food products, 85% of you would like to know what these manufactured goods contain. Consumers then have the ability to make informed choices on what toxins they are bringing into their homes, and subsequently into their bodies.
At the same time we discovered that manufacturers were also importing and exporting products from around the world and we identified that it was important for suppliers to communicate this to customers.
