Around 30% of celiacs react to oats in exactly the same way as wheat (which I already stated happens to me). Oats have a different gluten-like protein in them, but we still react to certified gluten free oats exactly the same as we do to wheat.. It's got nothing to do with cross-contamination from where they're grown, or how they're processed. The Coles GF pasta is vile, especially in comparison to San Remo. I've tried all the pastas on the market at Coles, Woolies, IGA and the Health Food store - and like I said, they're also cost prohibitive when the quality just isn't there. Have you ever tried the pasta your nephew eats? Do you know what the taste is like compared to regular foods? Being celiac is extremely expensive if you buy the gluten-free packaged food on a regular basis - and like I said, I've been doing this for nine years now. I do my research thoroughly. I test products, and when I can justify the price versus quality, we buy it. And that doesn't happen very often, I can tell you.
