Dear Gluten Free Watchdog community,
Two news notes…
Oats: Due in large part to data published in the public domain by Quaker, the gluten-free community continues to learn about the nature of gluten grain cross contact in oats, including that:
- Grains of wheat, barley, and rye are unevenly distributed within a given amount of oats.
- Despite what may be the best efforts of suppliers, gluten-containing grains have been found in both final product purity protocol oats and final product mechanically and optically sorted oats.

Quaker is up first. Please see the post at https://www.
Call to action: A post on the Gluten in Medicine Disclosure Act of 2019 was published this morning. Please see https://www.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
As always, thank you for your support of Gluten Free Watchdog.
