NEW: White Oats gluten-free!
Our all-time favourite – White Oats now also gluten-free!
Gluten is a natural protein found in certain cereals such as wheat, rye, spelt, oats, barley and green spelt, but also in emmer and kamut as the original form of wheat. Gluten is contained in many foods (bread, pasta products, ready meals, confectionery, beverages, spices, etc.) but also, for example, in medicines, toothpaste and cosmetics.
The protein structure of oats differs significantly from wheat gluten. In addition, oats contain the protein avenin (avena, lat. = oats) which contains less celiac effective prolamin than wheat.
For those who cannot or do not want to eat gluten, tender White Oats gluten-free with their nutty flavour offer many ways for a more varied and refined diet. To avoid the entry of other grains into the product, we proceed with special care – including the selection of the seeds and the packaging. This is why we realise our gluten-free oat flakes with selected partners, with whom we have maintained a trustful cooperation for many years.

What does UTZ Certified mean?
When you buy UTZ Certified coffee, cocoa or tea you are helping build a better future. The word "UTZ” originates from the Mayan language and means “good”.
UTZ Certified stands for sustainable farming and better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet. The UTZ programme enables farmers to learn better farming methods, improve working conditions and take better care of their children and the environment.
Through the UTZ programme farmers grow better crops, generate more income and create better opportunities while safeguarding the environment and securing the earth’s natural resources.
Kölln is supporting this sustainable programme and uses chocolate from 100% UTZ Certified cocoa (standard: Mass Balance) for all Kölln mueslis and cereals containing chocolate since the end of 2012.
