Is oatmeal gluten free:
Most oatmeal is gluten free but you want to make sure it states it on the package. Many oatmeals have additives or are processed in facilities that process gluten, so if you are sensitive to gluten or if you have Celiac disease make sure you look for the certified gluten free seal on the packaging.
