I believe I have read that they're sweetened with barley malt. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, please. If I'm right, then they contain gluten.

Natures Path Corn Flakes which are lightly sweetened with fruit juice are good too. My guys are gluten-free, not me, and I think they taste normal and use them in all my recipes that call for cornflakes. :) Kendra

At a celiac's meeting the experts (A doctor, nurse and dietician) said that Kelloggs Cornflakes and Rice Krispies are now considered gluten free. I haven't been able to find the confirmation I need before going ahead and eating them.

Does anyone know?

There is Barley Malt in them....

If you have a Wegmans near you, they have Strawberry Corn Flakes under their own label, you find it in the Organic Section. It is organic. I have had it and it is very good. It is labeled gluten free too.

Except if you consider barley malt flavoring a gluten ingredient.

I've tried every "health food" gluten free corn flakes I could get my hands on. They all suck if you ask me. Hard, not light and crispy like they are supposed to be. Sorry, I once worked for Frito Lay Research and conducted blind taste panel product testings. I tend to be very critical. You may find them acceptable. Please post your impressions.

best regards, lm

With the government deciding how much poison we could have I am not surprised about this at all. They are not gluten free. Period. If an item contains wheat starch or barley malt it is not gluten-free. It just tests below the level that has been determined to be okay to poison us with. As expected when the determination was made by the FDA we now can't even trust that a phone call to a rep or gluten free label means gluten free, we have to decide if it is gluten free by nature or by testing. I wonder why thats okay with gluten and not with peanuts. Oh wait a minute I know why, peanuts kill those reactive to them immediately, when they give us gluten it kills us slowly and makes for lots of money for the doctors while we try to figure out what else could be wrong with us cause we are eating labeled 'gluten free' food and still sick.

First.. don't ever assume a doctors 'recommended' list is correct. I've helped to correct some doctor's lists on gluten-free. The latest was from the children's feeding clinic program (for my child with celiac (but not diagnosed by a doctor - won't get into why)) and they had on their list McCann's Irish Oats. If you do research, you will find that SOME batches of their oats test with no trace of gluten.. but others have tested with over 300 ppm gluten (which under the new laws would NOT be gluten-free!). They supposedly changed mills and work really hard to be gluten-free but they are Gluten lite and you can't reliably eat them. I am VERY sensitive to gluten and trying the oats gave me a severe reaction - but it WAS on the gluten-free list by a specialty feeding program... just goes to show you that you must research every food and check. The only oats I've found to be free of gluten are the ones produced in Wyoming that I order via the internet (can't remember the company now..) We usually order a very large case each time and use them for oatmeal cookies and such. Being able to eat gluten-free oatmeal is GREAT for deserts.

I've recently stopped eating Kellogg's as I couldnt pinpoint what was getting gluten into my system. It appears Ive found the answer. The warning 'contains Barley' should have been enough I guess. There possibly listed as having no gluten due there being less than 10mg of gluten in them but thats too much for me. Fruit and yogurt is now the new morning cereal

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Hi!  I know I'll never forget the day I was told after an endo- and colonoscopy that I indeed had celiac disease.  I immediately went to a Trader Joe's grocery store and bought some gluten-free things to eat. about a month later I had a Total meltdown in my car outside a grocery store---feeling So Sorry for myself!   I cried and said I'll Never to able to eat what I want to again! that was 10 years ago and gluten-free foods have come a long way.... I love having a gluten-free everything bagel and delicious gluten-free 'Oreo cookies'----neither of which there were 10years ago. Everyone who has responded so far have Great Tips!  The best news is that your Diet will cure you!  I do not know of any other condition where this is true!! BTW---some of your friends and family Will understand and will make sure you aren't hung out to dry foodwise........and others just won't/can't understand and will think that just avoiding bread is enough..... Be kind, but don't risk your health to be nice to someone who forgot or doesn't understand. keep reading!  Keep trying different gluten-free foods to find what you like!   Best wishes!!  
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      It has never even been turned on. As I recall, it is capable of milling oats as well as popcorn. I don't know about coconut or other nuts but I can find out.
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      The very first question is.... Was that Retsel grain mill used for gluten before your diagnosis? If the answer is yes then the 2nd question is can it be COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED and cleaned in every single nook & cranny? If the answer to that is no, then you can't use that grain mill because you will be continually cross contaminating yourself.  3rd question: Will that mill do things like coconut? The grains that are oily. Some mills won't. Better check that out. I got a NutriMill & it can not do oily grains or things like coconut. No oats as they're oily, same for nuts. Rice flour it does a great job on & gets it as fine as I can buy it.
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Boy, you've sure had a rough time of it! My heart goes out to you! I love your positive attitude about coping until your villi heal more. THAT is your greatest ally in this journey. Okay, now to your problems...... Your gut is still damaged. You aren't healed yet - you know that as you've stated it. It can be really wonky for the first 6 months to a year. It's like being on a roller coaster ride & you can have good days & sucko days & good weeks & weeks that are the absolute pits. My advice would be to ditch all the processed gluten free foods. You'll heal faster & have less problems eating "whole foods" --- fresh or frozen fruits & veggies, meats & dairy as long as you can tolerate it. Forget the corn flakes & rice krispies. They may be gluten free but it's still processed food & therefore full of all kinds of chemicals & preservatives & stuff you don't need. We always tell people to spend at least the 1st 6 months avoiding the processed foods. Time enough to get into those after you heal right? How about for breakfast you have a couple eggs, either fried or pan scrambled. Some fruit -- bananas, pears, whatever floats your boat, a glass of milk, some yogurt. You may need to have well cooked foods for a while & that means mushy veggies as well as fruit. From the sound of the extent of damage you had I would say that's where you ought to be at this point. You don't want to make things any harder on your gut than necessary for the time being. You do have one great big thing in your favor & that's your age. You're young & will by all rights heal up much faster than us old geezers who weren't diagnosed until our 50's, 60's & 70's after a lifetime of damage. Please read our Newbie 101 & follow the links contained within the threads. This will give you a ton of valuable information. Just click on it:  
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Okay, this makes more sense now. Was the celiac test in 2014 part of the checking to find out what was wrong with you which resulted in the Barrets dx?  NO, a colonoscopy will not diagnose celiac disease at all. The biopsies for celiac disease are taken in the small intestine not the colon. You need to get your records, both past & present. If you could post them here then we'd have a much better idea of what's going on and be more able to tell you what you might be looking at. When we say you might not have been given the right celiac blood panel, we mean the FULL, CURRENT panel and not just a primary screening. The screening is good but it does miss celiacs. We have members who tested negative on all but the DgP portions so when one has a situation like yours, you need to cover all the bases & have the complete panel done. Here it is: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG   If you post your results on the blood work make sure to post the reference ranges listed because different labs have different ranges. It would be imperative to know if the doc took biopsies for celiac when he was doing the endoscopy. How many & where exactly from? Some docs just rely on visual & that's not good enough to dx celiac disease. Biopsies are the only way.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
