Oatmeal Officially Labeled Gluten Free
For many, leading a gluten-free lifestyle is necessary for their health. The Quaker Oats Co., a unit of PepsiCo Inc., is the world’s leader in oat milling for nearly 140 years. Although oats are naturally gluten-free, stray wheat, rye, barley and spelt may be introduced during farming, storing and transportation. Through the development of a rigorous and breakthrough cleaning system, the millers at Quaker have used their expertise to remove stray grains to deliver high-quality oats that meet FDA standards for gluten-free. Additionally, multiple quality checks throughout the milling process up through finished product testing confirm Quaker’s ability to produce gluten-free oats.
“Requests for gluten-free oats have been among the top inquiries from our consumers for the past several years,” says Becky Frankiewicz, senior vice president of Quaker Foods. The suggested retail price of the Quaker Gluten Free Quick 1-Minute Oats (18-oz. canister) is $3.99 and the Quaker Gluten Free Instant Oatmeal (original and maple & brown sugar varieties) is $4.19.
