I wrote to Post and Kellogg's about two weeks ago, and with both places I got the same response. That none of the cereals at this time were known to be completly safe for a gluten-free diet, because of ingredients and high rates of cross contamination. I've noticed everywhere on this board that people are eating these cereals though. So did I get wrong information? Are these cereals safe? I know Corn Pops just changed over but they said none of their cereals were gluten-free, same with Post. Post said that all cereals are processed on machines with other wheat products and the machined are not entirely cleaned between runs, so they cannot recommend eating their cereal at this time.

I'm mainly wondering because I don't want contaminated but I'm tired of buying more expensive cereals.

Thanks,
murda

Post has a couple of cereals that are technically gluten-free and some people do eat them (I have a couple of times) but there's good reason for the warnings from the companies. The plants are filled with gluten dust and cleaning the lines thoroughly is nigh impossible.

My daughter and I eat Post Fruity Pebbles with no problems at all, the ingredients are gluten-free, but I guess there could be a chance of cross contamination.

When I called the company a few months ago (POST) I was told that both fruity pebbles and cocoa pebbles are made on dedicated lines.......that is why I have no worries about them.
