Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Are your oats treated with glyphosate?
No, our oats are glyphosate-free.
Our supplier has adopted the following policy:
“Glyphosate on Oats Policy
This communication is to serve as official notification that as of harvest 2015, [we] will no longer accept any oats and/or oat products which have been treated with glyphosate. This change is driven by functional performance attributes of finished products manufactured from oats known to have been treated with glyphosate and by customer demand. This policy does not suggest any health or food safety concerns as reviewed and regulated by both the US FDA and/or CFIA/Health Canada.”
Are you oats purity protocol oats?
While the requirements of the Purity Protocol are excellent for reducing the risk of gluten contamination from wheat, rye, barley, and their hybrids and related grains, these steps do not remove the requirement that the final product be verified as containing less than 20 ppm gluten in order to be labeled gluten‐free, or less than 10 ppm gluten to be certified gluten‐free by GFCO.
Our GF certified oats are consistently Elisa tested under 10 parts/million. We are certified by the GF certification program endorsed by the Canadian Celiac Association and Beyond Celiac.
