Why Yes, We DO Have Gluten Free Oat Bran! {Giveaway}

by Cassidy Stockton in Contests, Featured Articles, Gluten Free

Ever since Duchess Kate Middleton was reported to have slimmed down for her wedding dress using the Dukan Diet*, oat bran has seen a huge surge in popularity. Whether or not you believe in the Dukan Diet, oat bran is an incredibly healthy addition to your diet. For starters, oat bran is high in dietary fiber. The soluble fiber helps soak up bad (LDL) cholesterol from the blood stream, while the insoluble fiber helps move that cholesterol and other waste out of your body. Oat bran also packs a pretty good protein punch with 5 grams of protein in a 1/3 cup serving size. Between the fiber and protein, this cereal is a fantastic way to fuel your day. Oat bran can also be used in smoothies and baked goods such as muffins, quick breads, cookies and more.

Since our introduction of certified gluten free oats in 2007, we’ve been getting request after request for gluten free oat bran. For the last two years, folks here at Bob’s Red Mill have been working to bring you the high-quality oat bran you’ve come to expect from us and ensure it is gluten free. Well, folks, they finally did it! We’re pleased as punch to be able to offer the health benefits of oat bran to our gluten free customers!

Our new gluten free oat bran is made from the same oats that we use to make our gluten free rolled and steel cut oats. Each delivery is sampled using the R5 ELISA Gluten Assay to ensure the absence of gluten and packaged in our gluten free facility. Please be aware, however, that a small percentage of people cannot tolerate even the purest of oats. If you are unsure whether oats are suitable for your diet, please check first with your health advisor before eating them. Read more about oat (or avenin) sensitivity here.

This product will start appearing in your local stores in the next few months. If you simply cannot wait, we’ve got this product on sale through the month of May at 25% off on our website. Check it out here.


We’d like to giveaway a package of our new Gluten Free Oat Bran to three lucky winners. To enter? Simply leave us a comment here on this blog post and tell us what you would make with gluten free oat bran. We’ll pick three winners randomly from all who enter by 11:59 pm on 5/3/12 (that’s Thursday). 

*If you are interested in the Dukan Diet, please know that they have approved our oat bran as a good substitute for the special oat bran called for in the book.
