Hang on there, you cool person who is looking to read some extremely interesting scientific information on oats and plant-based nutrition. Before you take a look at the following pages and before you proceed to click ‘YES,’ we have a disclaimer that we would like you to read here.
Q: Are Oatly products gluten-free?
A: To be labelled ‘gluten-free’ in the UK, products must contain no more than 20 ppm of gluten. The gluten content of Oatly products sold in the UK is not quite that low, so we can't currently claim that they are gluten-free.
That said, we do have strict requirements regarding the purity of the oats we use and we're careful to control and minimise gluten cross-contamination as much as possible. Because of this, we're able to ensure that all Oatly products contain less than 100 ppm (mg/kg per product) gluten from wheat, barley and rye. Our products are therefore classed as ‘very low gluten’ (containing between 21 and 100 ppm gluten).
