Trix

15 posts in this topic

I didn't know that TRIX cereal was gluten free. My daughter is pretty happy today. It is whole grain - CORN. So that could be a fun treat for kids - or adults.

But you guys probably knew this, but I just found out today.

I do not eat breakfast cereal, so I am not up on what is gluten free or not. But, I have never heard of TRIX mentioned on this site before. For that reason alone, I feel skeptical. Perhaps, I am wrong. :blink: and I truely hope so. Just a gut feeling.

It would be wonderful to have a new breakfast product.

Trix have been mentioned before on several different threads. If you do a search for "trix" they come up. I believe the problem is that they keep going back and forth saying "yes gluten-free, no not gluten-free" to me that is scary!! I don't eat them because who knows what the current status is each week lol

Trix became gluten free several months ago, there were a few posts on this site...Cocoa Puffs also hit the market as gluten free during the same time in a "new chocolatey mix" box...Cocoa puffs however are NOT gluten free, that didn't last very long...I had a reaction to Trix and have not tried them again, however, I tried them when they first were named gluten-free and figured maybe there was some serious CC'n going on...General Mills has recently come out with several cereals that are considered gluten-free, which is exciting...but I miss my Raisin Nut Bran and my Honey Bunches of Oats...or Honey Nut Cheerios...haven't been able to find a good subsitute yet...Cero's didn't work out for me, neither did Perky o's. just didn't have the right taste!!

It is exciting that a big company like General Mills is making moves on the gluten-free front...maybe there's hope for other companies soon :)

Trix being gluten-free is relatively new. It used to have wheat starch in it. I would read the label every time you buy it, they have a tendency to change ingredients without the "all new" warning.

Gluten wasn't listed on the ingredients, but we called, and they asked the date and the code with the upc - were told yes, they were gluten free.

I just finished a box (not in one sitting, over a week or so) with no ill effects.

General Mills has recently come out with several cereals that are considered gluten-free, which is exciting...but I miss my Raisin Nut Bran and my Honey Bunches of Oats...or Honey Nut Cheerios...haven't been able to find a good subsitute yet...Cero's didn't work out for me, neither did Perky o's. just didn't have the right taste!!

I found a cereal that taste similar to honey nut cherrios. they are really good - By Glutino - Honey Nut - You may like those!

General Mills brands will clearly list their gluten, so even if they do frequently change their ingredients all you have to do is read the ingredient list to determine if it is gluten free. My son's been eating them for a while with no problems. I wish cocoa puffs were gluten free! ;) Although, the gluten free list that I got from Safeway had their generic brand of cocoa puffs (cocoa astros) listed as gluten-free.

Maltodextrin is ok, food starch can be made from corn or wheat when in doubt call the company and they will tell you the source.

Always check the box. I believe at some points it was not gluten free. But it currently is and I have seen it mentioned here before. Pebbles is also gluten-free as is Little Einstein and some sort of icky Micky Mouse rice cereal. It's brightly colored. Daughter dumped a bowl of it all covered in rice milk all over the carpet. What a mess!

Maltodextrin has nothing to do with Malt and is OK.

Modified Food Starch can be from Wheat, barley, corn, tapioca or other stuff. Sometimes asking the company yields the "legal reply" with the stuff about suppliers and etc.

But DO watch for "malt flavoring" in ALL cereals by ALL mfg's! Malt Flavoring is made from barley and NOT gluten-free. That's Kellog's and Post's and Capt Crunch's problem. They all make cereals that WOULD be gluten-free (like Rice Krispies and Capt Crunch) if it weren't for that darned MALT FLAVORING which sweetens cereal without having to count it as a sugar.......

I'm so excited about Trix and General Mills. I'm going to go down the cereal isle too!

I started making my own cereal since I don't trust the current brands on the market. I was eating Mesa Sunrise and Puffins but as soon as I stopped, I started feeling better again. So I think they were contaminated with gluten even though they advertise that they are gluten free. I would be REALLY excited though if Trix were safe. That would be a great snack!

    • I thought I would update you all.  I started to eat gluten shortly after this post.  I was miserable by the time I had my EGD.  The doctor gave a diagnosis after the EGD was completed, duodenitis, gastritis and hiatal hernia.  I had abnormal mucosa of the whole stomach and severe inflammation.  The biopsy results came back today, they stated early stages celiac disease.  I wonder what it would've shown if I wasn't on a gluten free diet for two years?  My doctor said he still wants me to come in for a talk, he doesn't really know if he should call it celiac disease since it's early stages....  WTH!  I've really got to find a doctor that specializes in Celiac Disease...    
    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
