Gluten-Free Oats

30 June 2010

Note: you can get __certified__ __gluten-free__ oats from (and Smart Nutrition). This is a new company and it’s nice to have this option.  (They are expensive, but heretofore the only reason the kids had to avoid oats is that because every oat grower had contaminated oats.  That’s my understanding – let me know if you hear different. You can read about it of course at the website.)

Bob’s Red Mill has now started offering Gluten-Free Oats (now that the concept is proven commercially viable!).

Warning: Someone who has not had oats for a long time should take small doses and increase amounts slowly.  Anyone at all not used to oats will feel very bad when first eating a large quantity! Makes you wonder if we should really be eating them!

For pasta: Tinkyada gluten-free noodles are great, including lasagne noodles; Annie’s gluten-free stuff is fabulous but limited to small expensive boxes (think “kraft macaroni and cheese”) — they don’t sell their pasta separately and they grow it, make it and package it themselves (vertical production). We sometimes buy the box, toss the cheesy powder stuff (or save it for popcorn), and use the noodles to make our own homemade mac-and-cheese (from cheddar and mozerella).

Tapioca flour, rice flour and amaranth flour, and xanthan gum from Bob’s Red Mill (store, online, or +1 800 349 2173) is high quailty but expensive.  Rosie buys in bulk from Olympia Food Co-op, but also bakery-size bags online.     Absolutely everything in GF Joe’s is gluten-free, so that’s kinda fun.
