Gluten-Free Purity Protocol Oats. What does it mean and does it really matter? A mini rant

Gluten-free oats, gluten-free groats, gluten-free oat flour

While the great news about the amazing health benefits of oatmeal continues to go mainstream, so does the the controversy about safety of gluten-free oats. At Gluten-Free Prairie, we take the purity of our gluten-free oat products very seriously.  Our company is based completely on third-party certified Purity Protocol Oatmeal, Oat Flour and Oat Groats. What does that mean? There is a very short and easy explanation  please see it by clicking HERE.

That’s right! All of our products contain ONLY  Gluten-Free Purity Protocol Oats. We are also proud to maintain our third-party Certification with CSA, which is the most stringent in the industry, requiring us to test at 5ppm (compared to the acceptable 20ppm of the FDA here is the U.S.).

Why are our oats and oat products a perfect addition to our safe and healthy gluten-free diets? See the up-to-the-minute stats by clicking here:

So…there are a lot of gluten-free oat products on the market today, more every day it seems. So why aren’t all manufacturers using Purity Protocol Oats? The simple answer: $$COST$$. According to Package Facts, the Gluten-Free Market is expected to be a $2 billion industry by 2020. Wowzers! That must mean there’s a lot of competition for our gluten-free shopping dollars, right?  So it also makes sense why many major manufacturers would focus their budgets on slick ads and fancy packaging. A decision which might leave less of their budget to spend on a quality purity protocol oat product.

Thing is – that makes NO sense to our Gluten-Free Prairie Family. And, lucky us, we are blessed to have a designer in the family; thanks to Jennifer for our beautiful package design. Otherwise, most of our advertising is via word of mouth. Our resources are directed toward producing truly high quality products along with a promise that we will never compromise or take short cuts. And beyond that: The proof is in the tasting.

So, now you know why Purity Protocol Oats are so important. Yay! If you have any questions about any of our products, please contact me directly:

But don’t take my word for it. It’s also important to mention that Shelley Case #glutenfreequeen – widely considered North America’s Gluten-Free Expert has just released her newest book: Gluten-Free, The Definitive Resource Guide. Gluten-Free Prairie is one of only three companies in the U.S. and Canada recommended by Shelley Case in her new book. Thank you Shelley!

    This is great. In addition to Celiac, I’m also extremely sensitive to nightshades. I’d like to try your GF Oat Flour. Are you sure that it won’t have potato flour residue from your other products? Thanks.

      Hi Kate,
      There is some potato starch in our line of mixes – and we bag them on the same line as the Oat Flour. Even though everything is cleaned between products, I cannot guarantee that there would be no residue. So sorry.
      Thanks for the inquiry.
