Is It True That Dora The Explorer Cereal Is gluten-free?

10 posts in this topic

I'm sorry to bombard this site with so many questions...and probably questions that have been asked over and over so SORRY if that's so. I'm sure I'll get most of my questions answered when we meet with the nutritionilist...but until then.....here are the ingredients of the cereal....

Whole Grain Corn, Corn Meal, Sugar, Corn Bran, Modified Corn Starch, Canola and/or Rice Bran Oil, Corn Syrup, Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Cinnamon, Dicalcium Phosphate, Trisodium Phosphate, Baking Soda, Iron and Zinc (Mineral Nutrients), Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbate), A B Vitamin (Niacinamide), Natural and Artificial Flavor, Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B1 (Thiamin Mononitrate), Vitamin A (Palmitate), A B Vitamin (Folic Acid), Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Vitamin E (Mixed Tocopherols) and BHT Added to Preserve Freshness.

should I worry about the modified corn starch? And I"ve read on here that Fruity Pebbles is gluten-free so I bought a box but she hasn't had any yet.

Thanks again! Mary

Don't worry about asking questions! That's what this forum is for!!

Yes, Dora stars are gluten-free. We eat it all the time. Also, Trix, Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Pebbles, and Little Einsteins are gluten-free. Just make sure you read the label often since they sometimes change the ingredients. The most annoying ingredient you may see in lots of "corn based" cerials is malt. Modified corn starch is perfectly fine.

Oh yeah, you probably won't get much help from the nutritionist! They are usually clueless when it comes to a gluten-free diet. Although, some can be great.

:o What??? Some boxes of Lucky Charms are gluten-free? I'm confused. I thought Lucky Charms were NOT safe. How can some boxes be ok? Please elaborate!

I just looked at the General Mills website. Lucky Charms is an oat cereal, made with both whole grain oats and oat flour. These oats are almost certainly contaminated with gluten, because they are not gluten-free oats. I would be interested to know what source says Lucky Charms is gluten-free.

I'm yet to see the Dora Stars in a store. I shop at King Soopers (which is Kroger) and I've checked Safeway as well.

Any suggestions?

That's my next plan.

Actually, I'll be at a Super Target tonight so I'm going to check there as well.

I bought mine at Super Walmart..on sale for 1.50 a box. Now that I know they're gluten-free I'm sending DH out to buy about 5 boxes!

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
