Introducing our Aussie Grown Oats... the Same Oats, but Better
After 13 years of supplying you with our beautiful oats sourced from the USA we are excited to advise that we are slowly transitioning over to our Aussie farmers who can now supply us with pure GF uncontaminated Oats of the same quality. These oats have passed the #bloodygoodoats test and we know you are going to LOVE them as much as the oats from the USA.
This hard decision to discontinue the supply of oats from the US has been initiated due to the increased cost of US oats, the deflated Aussie dollar, increased freight costs and supply chain issues. Be rest assured that we will be replacing the US stock with oats of equivalent quality that are sourced from our very own Aussie farmers.
Steel Cut Oats – For a unique ‘Nutty’ texture and flavour
Our GF STEEL-CUT OATS are a less refined version of the old-fashioned and quick-cooking oats you already know. Steel-cut oats are also called pinhead oats, coarse oatmeal, or Irish oatmeal are groats of whole oats which have been chopped into two or three pinhead-sized pieces for faster water absorption. All oats start out the same, as an oat groat. Steel-cut oats are oat groats that have been sliced into smaller pieces, whereas old-fashioned oats are oat groats that have been flattened. They all contain the same pieces and parts, but the difference between slicing and flattening explains why steel-cut oats take longer to cook (around 30 minutes if unsoaked)
“Grown and processed in certified facilities that are free from contamination and still full of taste.” GF Steel Cut Oats are available in Certified Organic or Traditional, which means you know there are no nasties.
Our Steel Cut Oats are sourced from specialised farmers growing some of the most nutritious oats in the world. They are the same oats you see in other parts of the world labelled gluten free AND test down to nil gluten.
GF Steel Cut Oats are uniquely grown and processed in certified facilities that are free from the contamination from the gluten found in wheat, rye, spelt and barley grains. Farmers use minimal impact growing techniques and crop exclusion zones. Their oats seed is sourced from their own heritage seed stocks and has a unique roasted creamy flavour that comes from their unique shelf stable mill processes and production line that is free of the top 8 allergens.
Considerations: This brand is part of the Purity Oats group of growers. The Nil gluten test results are displayed on the compliance page. It is important to note that in Australia, a product that contains oats cannot be labelled gluten free due to current food labelling laws.
