It's more complicated than that they need to use oats that were grown in area that's separated from other grains
Not familiar enough to know if this us adequate, but Lakewood has with gluten free certification.

Apparently Rabbi Kestenbaum has developed oats which are 100% gluten free.
Of the 5 grains which can be used for Matzos, oats have the least gluten. He planted a field of oats, tested them to see which part of the field had least gluten, replanted those kernels and did the same thing with the new crop. He repeated this a number of times until he got gluten free oats.

I don't know what the going price is. The link is what came up when I searched on Google as an example.

Rediscovering science from first principles, huh

I bought my son oat matzah.
He took one bite and said it was worse than marror!
It's not simple that oats really are one of the חמשת מיני דגן but it is the only choice for some unfortunately.

yes, lakewood and kestenbaum are the 2 that are gluten free, unless there is a new one this year. They are both equally expensive and  awful

Are these only the thick round ones or do they have the everyday boxed ones also?

I was in the bakery in Israel where Lakewood makes the oat matzoh, they have a guy that comes to test the air to make sure there's no gluten. Oat is also the first batch of the year so you don't have other flour in the main bakery room yet.
Oat dough is extremely delicate and there is a lot of waste even with machine matzoh. I'm sure that's part of the reason it's so pricey.

I wonder if Yemenite style oat Matza would be any better/cheaper. I would guess an Ashkenazi that has a medical reason would get a heter to use such.

Maybe Yemenite would taste better, or at least be easier to chew and swallow. After all, it's only in the last couple of hundred years that Ashkenazim started making the current cracker style matzos that we currently eat.

Blasphemy! The Jews exiting Egypt carried dough in pouches on their back, and it naturally baked itself into thin round crackers! Obviously!

Was that the Matza before Chatzos or the Matza after Chatzos?
