    They can be both. It's how they are processed. Rolled oats have a higher instance of Cross Contamination because of the machines that have to roll them flat. Stick with oats labelled Gluten-Free. Steel-cut oats have less risk of CC, and some are okay without Gluten-Free labelling. It all depends on how sensitive you are to Cross Contamination.


      Do quick or instant oats have high cross-contamination? I am having a hard time finding info on this on my own.


        Usually. But look at labels. Most companies will put a warning on there saying it was processed in a facility that also processes wheat, etc. I don't react with non-GF oats. That said, I think I feel slightly better with Gluten-Free oats. It's so hard to tell. You can also find GF quick oats. The best bet is to read labels.

        Also, some people are reactive to the proteins found in oats. It's not that it's gluten, but similar so their body doesn't like it.
