My son isn't allergic to gluten but he has a mild ASD and a gluten free, dairy free, soy free diet has really made a world of difference in his symptomatic behaviours.
I bought some GF oats recently but then read somewhere that oats have a similar protein to gluten that has a comparable affect on people sensitive to it. Does anyone know about this or have they experienced sensitivities to GF oats?
Any time we have a slip up with DS's diet he backslides a bit for a while and it's difficult for everyone so I'd hate for that to happen. But I'd really like to find out if he can tolerate these GF oats because I'd like to make some nut-butter honey oat snacks to give him something calorie dense and healthy as he has dropped some weight lately due to really finicky eating and recurring colds.
Any input on this will be appreciated!!!
