WHAT IS A SPURTLE?

The Spurtle (or “spirtle”) is a traditional Scots kitchen tool that has its origins in the 15th century.  Over time the original implement changed shape and began being specifically used for stirring oatmeal and soups.  The rod-like shape is designed for constant stirring which prevents the porridge from congealing or becoming lumpy.  The Spurtle is a wooden implement with a contoured end to give the user a better grip and is suitable for any stirring or mixing tasks in the kitchen, such as soups, sauces, or anything given to sticking.

Very interesting tool.... liked the history lesson on the card.... good for my porridge.

GF Oats use Aramax (Fastway) and Australia Post to deliver your order. We are in regional Qld and have limited freight companies to use.  We are very happy with our local Aramax company but if you find them less than satisfactory at your end you can make a note on your order for us to only use Australia Post.  All orders are tracked and your tracking code will be sent by email when your order is dispatched.  

Since Covid 19 we have found that with the uptake of online shopping that freight companies have been under significant pressure in some areas to dispatch in a timely manner. We continue to work closely with our contacts to ensure the very best service we can for our customers, however, it is often out of our control.

Once your parcel leaves our GF Oats headquarters, we say a prayer, but after that, it is really out of our control. If you have any problems with your order please respectfully reach out to our team who will do their very best to track this item. It is our company policy that if conversations are not conducted in a respectful manner they will be forwarded to management.

Our freight costs vary across all our products, and are weight based. All freight includes GST and will be calculated during checkout, but as a guide are prices are as follows:

Collection days and times are 9am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, 9am to 12.30pm Friday. If choosing local pick up please wait until you've received an email from the team advising that your parcel is ready to collect. If you are requiring bulk amounts we are more than happy to quote you a special price, please call us to inquire.

    If you are not at the specified delivery address to receive the parcel, a card will be left advising you that delivery was attempted. Parcels will only be left without a signature if it is requested in writing (Authority to Leave – ATL).  Gfoats.com.au takes no responsibility for parcels left without signatures.  Sometimes attempted delivery notification cards get accidentally discarded, so if you believe your parcel should have arrived, please contact the freight company as parcels get returned after 7 days of no contact.

    Tracking numbers for all deliveries are available and these will be emailed to you when your order is dispatched. If you did not receive your tracking number, please check your junk email folder and if you have not received anything, just contact us and we can forward it on to you.

    Some areas across the country can take a little more time to receive their deliveries, ie; Western Australia has a quarantine process that can extend the time for your order to reach your door and we anticipate deliveries to Western Australia could take between 2-3 weeks.

    We are able to send orders express if requested, but this will incur an additional express postage fee of $6.95 in addition to the shipping fee calculated at checkout.

    Compliance - Why we are 'The Oats You Can Trust!'

    Open tab

    Our Commitment to you
    It is important to us here at GK Gluten Free Foods that we provide Australian consumers with oats that are free from contamination from the gluten that is found in wheat, rye and barley.

    To ensure that we are providing you with “The Oats You Can Trust” we partner with our approved network of Australian farmers who follow the Global Oats Protocol growing clean, uncontaminated oats. Their oats are uniquely grown using minimal impact growing techniques and crop exclusion zones, and are processed in facilities that are free from the contamination from the gluten found in wheat, rye, spelt and barley grains.

    Australian Labelling Laws
    Current labelling laws in Australia and New Zealand restrict us from labelling any product that contains oats as gluten-free. Other countries around the world have different labelling laws that apply to uncontaminated oats.

    Testing
    Each batch of oats is independently tested by Symbio in Brisbane. The gluten test from Symbio is reported as <3ppm as this is the level of quantification for their testing. They use the R-biopharm test kit for gluten, which uses an antigen-antibody reaction to determine gluten levels.  <3ppm effectively equates to ‘0’ or nil gluten detected.  

    Note: 2015 updates to the labelling laws now allow us to label GF Oats products as “Low Gluten”. Low Gluten simply means <20ppm which still doesn’t represent the purity of our product.

    'Wheat free' Oats also does NOT represent the purity of our oats. As there is no formal definition of what 'Wheat free' means, it can be presumed that they are NOT free from Rye or Barley. We consider this to be a serious problem for customers.

    ANZAC Biscuits
    It is a requirement of Veterans Affairs that any product that carries the word ANZAC for commercial purposes be approved. We are pleased to inform all our customers that we have done this. The letter of Approval received by Veterans Affairs can be viewed here. 

    FAQ’S
    We appreciate that customers have many questions regarding this product and the branding as it can be confusing when we are unable to completely communicate the true representation of these oats due to labelling restrictions.

    i'd never heard of a spurtle so i got one mainly out of curiosity. it came with a little card explaining all the history of the tool, and i use it fairly often for cooking now. it's really good for getting into the edge (corners? foldy part?) of my pots, especially when making sauces! no more sticking bechamels for me! the wood is gentle on my non-stick dishes and I plan to get one as a gift for my MIL. very useful!
