Oat Sensitivity

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.
