Glyphosate on oats?

last month

I bought some organic rolled oats to test for myself what some diabetics say, that oatmeal does not spike their blood glucose. In advertising, there are claims that organic oats are better because they don't get sprayed with glyphosate to hasten drying. One report said that grains were protected because the grain itself has a covering that is removed. Other reports say there is a level of safety and the glyphosate levels in foods fall below that level.

This is the first I've heard about the spraying and drying and from a quick read a lot of claims are being made. Has anyone read up on any of this and if so, what do you think? There is so much varied info that for me right now it is difficult to form an opinion yet, I'd like to hear what you think.
