At last, oats that people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance can enjoy, too! Our Gluten Free Quick Cooking Rolled Oats are rolled extra thin to shorten the cooking time. Each farm delivery we receive is sampled hundreds of times and tested with an R5 ELISA gluten test to ensure the absence of gluten. Advanced color-sorting removes undetected impurities. Roasting enhances that wholesome robust flavor you expect. Finally, the oats are packaged in our 100% gluten free facility and tested for gluten again to ensure their purity.
The modern oat draws its ancestry from the wild red oat, a plant originating in Asia. Oats have been cultivated for two thousand years in various regions throughout the world. Before being consumed as a food, oats were used for medicinal purposes, a use for which they are still honored. The growing of oats in Europe was widespread, and oats constituted an important commercial crop since they were a dietary staple for the people of many countries including Scotland, Great Britain, Germany and the Scandinavian countries. In the early 17th century, Scottish settlers brought oats to North America. Today, the largest commercial producers of oats include the Russian Federation, the United States, Germany, Poland and Finland.
Scores of studies have documented the many health benefits of oats. Eating oats helps lower LDL "bad" cholesterol and may help reduce the risk of heart disease. Oats help you feel fuller longer, which helps control your weight. Oatmeal and oats may help lower blood pressure. Oats may help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, since their soluble fiber helps control blood sugar. Oats are high in beta-glucans, a kind of starch that stimulates the immune system. Oats are higher in protein and healthy fats, and lower in carbohydrates than most other whole grains. They contain more soluble fiber than any other grain. Oats contain more than 20 unique polyphenols called avenanthramides, which have strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-itching activity. They also have the best amino acid balance of all the cereal grains.
Gluten Free Quick Cooking Oats make a delicious and healthy “instant oatmeal” alternative to the little packets other brands offer (those being loaded with preservatives and sugar). Add in extras like chia seeds, flaxseed meal, dried fruit, nuts, seeds—whatever ingredients you love in your oatmeal! Mix with steaming hot water and microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes, let stand for another 2 minutes and you’ve got a healthy and easy breakfast ready to go.
Please be aware that a small percentage of people cannot tolerate even the purest of oats. If you are unsure whether oats are suitable for your diet, please check first with your health advisor before eating them.

- Convenient quick cooking, and gluten-free!
I've known I was gluten intolerant (not celiac) for 25 years. In that time, awareness of gluten problems has grown tremendously. One thing I really missed from my diet was oatmeal. Bob's Red Mill to the rescue with GF quick cooking oats! All Bob's GF oats are great, but I like the convenience of quick-cooking. Since I live far away in the mountains I buy 25 lb. bags and have them shipped to me.
- Great product!
I wound up having to buy this for my 6 month old. He has a wheat allergy, that happened to trigger a case of eczema, and was having minor reactions to Gerber and Beech Nut baby rice and oatmeal cereals, due to them being processed in a facility that also processes wheat. I, of course, ground this up before giving it to him, but there was no negative reaction and his skin looked better the next day than it had in weeks! No more raised, red blotchiness around his mouth! An oatmeal bath, for him, may be in the near future.
