Glebe Farm's low GI gluten free oats release energy slowly, helping to keep you satisfied until lunch, which means you are less likely to snack. Our oats are high in fibre which is often missing from a wheat free diet. Oats are a good source of iron, antioxidants, can help reduce cholesterol levels and contain beta-glucan which may help with Type 2 diabetes.
Made with gluten free oats.

Why Gluten Free?
Selling fresh bread at farmers markets in 2000 Rebecca was constantly asked for bread free from wheat or gluten. She decided to develop a range of gluten free flours, bread and cake mixes and later gluten free beer and cider. Realising that pure oats were gluten free, the first crop of oats was planted in 2008 from which a range of porridge, muesli and granolas were created. Please see The Oat Story slideshow below.
