After hearing so many talk about how Rice Chex bother them (as they do me), I finally wrote to the company. They do indeed contain corn. So those of us with corn intolerances had best stay away from them. Here is what they said:

 

Dear Ms. XXXX:

 

 

Thank you for contacting us concerning Rice Chex cereal. We appreciate the opportunity to address this matter.

The Mixed Tocopherols ingredient contains a corn ingredient.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Amanda Peach

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

Just to clarify- This product is safe for people with Celiac Disease.  Bartful has an additional corn intolerance or allergy.

I could not tolerate Rice Chex but came to know that it is because of corn. Initially, I did not have knowledge of all the many corn derivatives.

I also could not even tolerate honey and then found out they feed bees corn syrup often in winter months and it is present in the honey so I now use sugar or agave nectar. A lot of problems for me because derivatives of corn are in just about everything. There is a list of corn derivatives at www.livecornfree.com and you can click on a red link saying ingredients to avoid for an extensive list of them.
