OMG! GMO Free Oatmeal


People frequently ask whether our oats are GMO (genetically modified organisms). GMO refers to items that have been altered from their original state by genetic engineering techniques.

The good news for Coach’s Oats fans and oatmeal fans everywhere is that there are no GMO commercially grown oats.

Oats grown for commercial use have six chromosomes, which makes the hexaploid grain difficult to genetically modify. There’s also no need to worry about other GMO grains contaminating oats in nature. Even if a GMO plant/grain is grown next to a field of oats, the GMO grain will not cross-pollinate with the oats.

So, to assure and answer all our fans, Coach’s Oats are indeed non-GMO.
