A Well-tolerated Wheat Alternative for Children and Adults with Celiac Disease

Although treatment of celiac disease has been thought to require lifelong avoidance of the protein gluten, which is found in wheat, rye, barley and oats, recent studies of adults have shown that oats, despite the small amount of gluten they contain, are well-tolerated. Now, a double blind, multi-center study involving 8 clinics treating 116 children newly diagnosed celiac disease suggests oats are a good grain choice for children with celiac disease as well. The children were randomly assigned to receive either the standard gluten-free diet (no wheat, barley, rye or oats) or a gluten-free diet with some wheat-free oat products. At the end of the study, which ran for a year, all the children were doing well, and in both groups, the mucosal lining of the small bowel (which is damaged by wheat gluten in celiac disease) had healed and the immune system (which is excessively reactive in celiac patients) had returned to normal.

It's an individual thing though. I just know that they don't break ME out.

I was asking myself the exact same questions recently. I ate oatmeal every day for breakfast with nutritional yeast, cinnamon, and cut up apple. Since I didnt have a clear answer about gluten in oatmeal, I tried amaranth. It's more expensive and takes longer to cook, but it's really yummy! I'll use it when I feel like having hot cereal as long as I have the time and money ;)

Oats have a relatively low GI, especially steel cut oats. I avoid bread becuase I can't find pure wheat bread at grocery store.
