I had a bunch of bob's gluten free oats yesterday (blame Dreena's banana oat bundles) and today I'm getting the spots on my feet that I was getting a lot more frequently when I was eating gluten. Do any of you have problems with gf oats?
oats contain a protein called avenin that some folks with celiac disease are also sensitive too. i know you don't have celiac, but maybe it's something that bugs you in both grains?
Oats lack many of the prolamines found in wheat; however, oats do contain avenin. Avenin is a prolamine that is toxic to the intestinal mucosa of avenin-sensitive individuals, and can trigger a reaction in these coeliacs.
