I wish I would have read this post before I ate RK treats this past Saturday night.

Ok, I am new to this with my son being diagnosed this year, but I like to read up on things that will make big changes in my life...and if you have celiac disease even a speck of gluten can cause problems. You may not feel anything physically, but inside it is going to cause complications. Do you people read up on a serious disease you were diagnosed with????? Seriously, trace amounts of gluten add up and I am sorry but I am not putting my child at risk by allowing him something that contains the word malt in it. They are not safe, and if you truly care about yourself and you have celiac disease you will read up on what it does to your body when you consume gluten.

Here is some great advice....when in doubt, do without!!!!

Long time followers of the diet know that it is not possible to be 100% gluten free in our world. Gluten is everywhere, and you will encounter some.

Even products from so-called gluten-free facilities are subject to contamination from outside sources. At best, and at a high cost, products can be tested for gluten at 5 ppm. Mainstream manufacturers do not test at all, and "gluten-free" facilities which do test can only test to a detection limit. Glutino test to 20 ppm. El Peto test to 5 ppm. In both cases, it is probably zero, but that cannot be proven.

Your body regenerates at a certain rate. The celiac game is to keep the inevitable gluten ingestion at a level that the body heals faster than damage occurs.

Even assuming the worst case for content, ppm is not the whole answer. If I eat one slice of bread that has 20 ppm, or four slices of bread that have 5 ppm, the total amount of gluten is exactly the same in both cases. A tiny medicine tablet with 200 ppm would be less than even one slice of 5 ppm bread.

I'm glad this one has been dug up. The Celiac organisation Food Directory List says in the UK that Tesco own-brand Rice Krispies are within 20ppm. I've been eating them and my symptoms are quite mild anyway so hard to detect whether they are OK or not. My instinct is that Asda own brand Cornflakes are more innocuous FWIW. The problem with cereal in the 'Free From" isles of supermarkets is a) the packets are tiny and b ) they're very expensive, so was quite keen to work out which 'normal' products are OK.
