GK Gluten Free Foods are the largest Australian importers and suppliers of Uncontaminated oats or Gluten-Free Oats as it is referred to in other parts of the world, however, in Australia, a subclause in the labelling laws continues to prevent the labelling of any oats to be gluten-free.
GF Oats are the only brand in Australia, who import bulk oats from “Purity Protocol” growers around the world, who certify their oats as uncontaminated from the gluten found in wheat, rye and barley, and meet Australia’s strict gluten-free minimum testing guidelines.
Once the product arrives in Australia, it is repackaged into various sizes for retail, foodservice and manufacturing in gluten-free certified organic facilities at the Toowoomba Endeavour Foundation. GF Oats use compliant packaging dedicated to communicating to the Australian consumer the benefits of this product. As we can’t call any product that contains oats gluten-free, GF Oats test each batch of oats independently for gluten contamination using independent testing facilities and the results are loaded onto a Compliance Page on the company website.
Accessing uncontaminated oats, free from contamination from gluten grains such as wheat, rye and barley in Australia is difficult, however, it is a project that GF Oats Australia has been working on for several years and look forward to bringing to market later in 2020.
For the moment we can claim that our Oats are Gluten Friendly, Vegan, Wheat Free, Certified Organic.
