Hi folks, I'm Bob Moore, founder of Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods. This is one of my very favorite whole grain foods: gluten-free steel cut oats. In my view, oats are one of the best foods on earth and eating a goodly portion of whole grain oats on a regular basis is a fundamental part of good health. I say, start your day with a heart bowl of whole grain oatmeal several times a week- even every day if you have a mind to. Add a banana, fresh or frozen berries, flax seed meal, and a little milk. There is simply no better way to get whole grain nutrition in the morning. And I'm living proof of that! The key is in the fiber and protein that oats offer.
The soluble fiber in whole grain oats slows your digestion, so your blood sugar level rises slowly. That makes you feel comfortable and satisfied longer- it holds your hunger at bay until lunch so you won't be tempted to snack on junk food or drink sugary pops. A bowl of steel-cut oats provides a good dose of protein- even more than an egg. And that gives you energy so you can start your day off strong!
These particular steel cut oats are very special product- brought to you by very special methods. What makes them so special? These steel cut oats are gluten-free. Of course oats are naturally gluten-free, but unfortunately they often become contaminated with gluten. It's a common farming practice to rotate oat crops and crops like wheat and other gluten containing products. That creates risk of oats coming into contact with gluten during harvest stage and transportation. For years this risk has meant oats were off the menu for people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. But no more!
We've solved the problem by partnering with a few forward thinking farmers who are committed to growing oats exclusively. They have dedicated their acreage to oats - no wheat, barley, or rye. From field to mill, they only process and handle gluten-free oats so there is no risk of gluten contamination. As an integral part of this overall operation, our quality assurance team tests each and every batch of oats throughout the process from the field to the milling to the packaging, to confirm these oats are safe, pure, and gluten-free. you can find Bob's Red Mill gluten-free steel cut oats just about anywhere- at your favorite supermarket, natural foods store, or online. From all of us at Bob's Red Mill to your good health!
Always delicious, nutritious, and gluten-free, check out these gluten-free steel cut oats from Bob's Red Mill.
