Oat Intolerance

If you have an intolerance (defined by yorktest as a food-specific IgG reaction) to oats, your body produces an inflammatory response to the proteins in foods or drinks containing oats.

Oat intolerance is not life threatening and the reactions after consuming oats are usually delayed. Oat allergy is rare.

Foods to avoid with oat intolerance

Oats are found in certain cereals and some baked goods. It is a good idea to look at food packaging if you are unsure. The following list of foods and ingredients should be avoided if you have oat intolerance:

  • Porridge/oatmeal
  • Oatcakes
  • Flapjacks
  • Muesli
  • Some biscuits and cereal bars
  • Oat breads
  • Oat milk
  • Oat beers and stouts
Buckwheat pancakes

Replacements for a balanced diet

Oats provide the body with fibre and, in soluable fibre, beca-glucan which can help to lower cholesterol reducing the risk of heart disease. If you have oat intolerance, you can include a variety of healthy alternatives in your diet such as:

  • Brown rice
  • Quinoa
  • Millet
  • Buckwheat
