WHAT IS PURITY PROTOCOL?
From our gluten-free oat fields to our dedicated gluten-free facility to your home,
we take care to provide you with quality gluten-free oat products
that are safe for people with celiac or gluten sensitivities.
Purity Protocol is a unique “Farm to Table” industry benchmark process
consisting of safety, purity and traceability protocols
that achieves consistent, superior quality certified gluten-free oats.
Purity Protocol is firmly endorsed by the Canadian Celiac Association (CCA). It specifies how oats can be grown and handled to prevent any cross-contact with wheat or other gluten-containing grains.
The main challenge with oats is that they’re normally grown, harvested, transported and stored alongside gluten-containing grains.
The idea of Purity Protocol is to “Start Clean and Stay Clean.” The seed must be pure to ensure no wheat or barley germinates to contaminate the field. Year-to-year rotation includes other gluten-free crops such as lentils, peas, canola and flax.
