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!

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
