Waitrose is rolling out a range of oats suitable for coeliac disease sufferers.

The supermarket will launch the rolled oats, made by wheat, gluten and lactose-free specialist Delicious Alchemy, into all stores on 31 August.

Although oats are naturally gluten-free, they often become contaminated with gluten from wheat, rye or barley during processing, making them dangerous for coeliacs.

"Having a superfood such as oats back on the menu will make a real difference to the lives of many people," said Emma Killilea, owner of Delicious Alchemy.
