WHAT IS GLUTEN? Gluten is a protein naturally found in certain grains such as wheat, barley, rye, and some oats. Foods that are made with these grains also contain gluten — that includes foods like bagels, breads, cakes, cereals, cookies, crackers, pasta, pizza, and more. People with certain medical conditions, such as Celiac Disease, need to eliminate gluten in their diet.
*Studies suggest that pure oats—oats that are not mixed with wheat, barley, or rye—consumed in moderation can be tolerated by most people with Celiac Disease. Check with your health care provider to find out if this is right for you.
