Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the labelling of foods containing oats as being “gluten-free” is specifically prohibited by the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code. Although oats do not contain Gluten as such, other proteins, which can act in the human gut in ways similar to Gluten, are present in oats. Such proteins can cause a reaction in sufferers of Coeliac (Celiac) Disease which is similar to that caused by Gluten. Consequently, any consumers who suffer from Coeliac (Celiac) Disease may have a reaction if the above product is eaten.

ACCC PRA number: 2012/13060
