Quick note: the core molecule of Oat (Avenin) is similar to wheat (Gliadin); therefore, people suffering from wheat intolerances, or have Coeliac, might also react to oats, even to gluten-free oats. "Consequently, it appears that a patient might have, for example, an allergic reaction to oats or have circulating antibodies to the avenin proteins of oats without having celiac disease."
