Gluten Free Harvest — Forrest Smith, Canyon Oats

Gluten free is a growing preference for some but a matter of life and death for others. When Forrest Smith was two years old he nearly died from Celiac disease, but it was identified and he grew up to produce gluten free oats and oat products in Wyoming for the World. We think of oats as being \”gluten free\” naturally but there are lots of ways that the oats can become contaminated from the farm equipment or in the mill. There has to be strict quality control and safety standards adhered to beginning with the planting of the oats and continuing through the food chain to the retail shelf.
