Our organic Double Protein Oats are purity protocol gluten free (the highest GF standard) and have twice the protein of traditional oats.
Best of all, they are raw, delicate and creamy — a beautiful base for you to dress up however you’d like, from traditional morning oatmeal to baking. They make an incredibly creamy oat milk too (use very hot water, not cold). You’ll have fun creating new ways to use them! They have no added sugar or flavorings.
But what is Purity Protocol for growing gluten free oats, and how does it remove the potential for cross contact? Here’s how. The variety of oats our farmers grow is shorter than wheat and barley, so when the plants shoot up, but before they sprout grains, the farm workers hand pick any wheat and barley from the field – removing the potential of cross contract in the field. This makes them more expensive to grow but much cleaner.
As an added precaution, we test our oat batches for allergen and gluten cross contact and every harvest is tested for over 400 agricultural chemicals and glyphosate. Even the conventional farmers in the region we source from have signed contracts not use Round Up on their fields, so we don’t have the chemicals drift onto our oats. Scan the QR code on any package to see the purity test results for your oat package or see the results in our Food Safety section on our website.
Because our oats are raw, they have an enzyme called lipase that can develop a bitter note. Not all oats are high in lipase. If your oats have this bitter note, you can neutralize it with very hot water–either pouring hot water on them or cooking them in water. Baking them also works. Toasting them dry does not remove bitterness and can actually enhance it.
