Q: is this a paper canister?
A: Thanks for asking, Tina. Our Quaker Old Fashioned Oats are packaged in a cardboard tube. We hope this information helps.submitted byQuaker Customer Support - 3 years agoBrand expert
A: Not entirely. There is a plastic rim at the top that must be cut out if you want to recycle the cardboard.submitted byMJB - 3 years ago
Q: This says "Does not contain any of the 8 major allergens". Does this mean they can be called "gluten free"? Just checking before I make GF desserts for friends.
A: I'm not sure. I would either try Googling your question and/or check the Quaker website, there may be a phone number to call and ask them. Hope this helps.submitted byRL - 5 years ago

Q: Are these oats processed in a faciliity that uses equipment to process anything with tree nuts?
A: Thanks for asking, Mary. If any of the top eight allergens (Milk, Egg, Fish, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Shellfish, Soy, Wheat) are an ingredient or a component of the ingredient, the allergen will be listed in the Ingredients list or included in a "Contains" statement immediately after the Ingredients list. This is consistent with FDA labeling requirements. For products made on production lines where we produce other varieties that have different allergens not contained in the product, the line is thoroughly cleaned between productions. Due to the complexity of some of the equipment in some instances it may be difficult to clean some areas completely. Because we realize the seriousness of food allergens, in those instances, we warn consumers about the possibility of trace amounts of specific allergens on shared production lines when applicable, with a "may contain" advisory statement on the label. We recommend consumers look for these statements each time they purchase a product as formulas may change.submitted byQuaker Customer Support - 3 years agoBrand expert
Q: Looking for rolled oats, is this brand rolled oats ?
A: Thanks for asking, Lee. The oats are cleaned and steamed to eliminate the undesirable enzymes present in raw oats, then 'toasted' to give them a roasted, nutty flavor. Some oats are cut into pieces to reduce cooking time and produce a more smooth and creamy texture when cooked. Oats are steamed just long enough to make them soft. Then they are passed between rollers. We hope this information helps.submitted byQuaker Customer Support - 3 years agoBrand expert
