McCann’s® Irish Oatmeal Announces Expansion of its Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal Product Portfolio

Three New Product Lines Available to Meet Consumers’ Changing Needs

Oak Brook, Illinois (April 25, 2016) – Warming the hearts, minds and souls of the most discriminating oatmeal lovers for more than 150 years, McCann’s® Irish Oatmeal announces the addition of three new product lines to its Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal portfolio: McCann’s® Traditional Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal Gluten-Free; Non-GMO Certified McCann’s® Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal; and McCann’s® Quick & Easy Steel Cut Irish Oats Single Serve Microwavable Cups.

“The expansion of McCann’s® Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal product portfolio is our response to the evolving food preferences and needs of consumers,” said Tom Perlstein, Director-Branded Marketing, Bay Valley Foods, LLC (a TreeHouse Foods company). “While awareness and demand continue to grow for options like non-GMO or gluten-free foods, there aren’t many of these selections available for steel cut oatmeal.”

McCann’s® Irish Oatmeal Gluten-Free

McCann’s® Irish Oatmeal’s Gluten-Free option is available in the 28-ounce McCann’s® Traditional Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal Tin and McCann’s® Quick & Easy Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal (both the 24-ounce Canister and 16-ounce Box). McCann’s® Quick & Easy Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal has the same whole grain goodness as its classic steel cut oatmeal option but cooks in just five minutes.

“Consumers who have difficulty digesting gluten should not have to compromise texture or taste to meet their dietary and lifestyle needs. McCann’s® Traditional Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal in a gluten-free formula offers rich texture and nutty flavor for those looking to satisfy a 100 percent gluten-free diet,” added Perlstein.

Non-GMO Certified McCann’s® Irish Oatmeal

The demand for non-GMO products continues to rise. McCann’s® Irish Oatmeal has earned its first non-GMO Certification from the Non-GMO Project for three of its core products — Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal in the 28-ounce Tin, Quick & Easy Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal in the 24-ounce Canister, and Quick Cooking Rolled Oats in the 16-ounce Box. McCann’s® Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal is produced using a number of best practices that not only supported its efforts to obtain Non-GMO Project verification, but also instill consumer confidence in its products. There is minimal processing, nothing artificial and it is made from 100 percent whole grain Irish oats.
