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
