I have  heard  about  this  but not in my  neck of the  woods  yet!  I do know  other  areas  already have   it....

I am wondering how the price compares to other gluten-free oats.

That is great news. The Glutenfreeda is pricey. I usually just get BRM, but if these are in one serving packs, it would be very helpful

for travel. Thank for posting this, K!  :)

I heard this was coming out a while back... I wonder what the price point and scope of availability is going to be.  I currently pay about a dollar per pouch for Bakery on Main oatmeal (6 count packets box) and I really like it.

Hi! Chex oatmeal was on sale two weeks ago in Pathmark. Price 2 for $5. On A ma zon they are asking $13,?? for one. It is a big different. It's better to buy them in regular grocery store.

i picked up some of the plain yesterday.  i can't remember what the price was, so it must have been not that expensive.  they had it at the kroger beside the 'regular' instant oatmeal in the cereal aisle.  i hope i can eat it (trying it again.  it's been another year since i tried oats)

I did not look at the price, i just saw they were there...but you are right, that is a lot for oatmeal.  :D Apparently people are willing to pay for it, as they have already sold out!

I can't remember the price I paid.  (sale and an instant coupon)

 

I like the glutenfreeda more.  Probably because I have been eating that brand for ?? years.

I found it today at Smith's which is a Kroger brand store. On sale for $3! It ended up in the cart so fast I think I made my husband's head spin. :lol: He's like "zomg $3 for 6 packs of oatmeal!" :blink: And I was like "you have NO IDEA how cheap that is." Since he knows what's good for him he shut up and kept walking. :P

I got a 6 pack to try, figuring the packets would be good to have for travel.. 2 plain, 2 cinnamon and 2 maple something or other......hubs liked it, but I thought the flavored ones were very sweet. IMHO

question for those who have had this and are very sensitive. did you react at all? I just saw it today and it's about half the price of what I usually get which is Eco Planet. that box says certified gluten-free and the Chex oatmeal just says gluten-free.

 

Thanks in advance

I bought the maple flavor and finally tried it.  I was kind of surprised that it was only 12 grams of sugar for how sweeeeeet it is.  But it's fantastic.  I bought it when it was so new that Dillons didn't even have a price sticker out.  I just knew I wanted it!  (And then didn't eat it, of course.)

i can't eat 'other' oatmeal (even certified gluten-free :(  )  so, i had about given up on having it anymore.  buuuuuuttt, i can eat this stuff, for whatever reason.  i'm going to try 'other' oatmeal again but for now, this is my oatmeal go-to :)  yay!!

The brown sugar is very sweet, too sweet for me, about 30 mins after eating it I had bad stomach cramps but they passed after 10 mins or so. I have used the plain packets in recipes and had mild discomfort I may have just developed an issue with oats though. I haven't eaten them but a handful of times since the diet change. I can't try the cinnamon because I am allergic.

I've had them (the cinnamon one) and have had no issues. The brown sugar one sounded rather sweet to me though.

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
