Posted 30 December 2004 - 08:31 AM
But now I am unsure... has anyone CONFIRMED that Post Fruity Pebbles and Coca pebbles are in fact gluten-free?
Thanks for your help...

It is my understanding that these products are gluten-free. My daughter and I eat them all the time without any problems.
I hope your daughter adjusts to the diet and begins to feel better soon. My daughter was 8 when she was dx too, she had a tough time at first but we were able to find replacements for some of her favorite foods.

When I checked the labels of these cereals they do contain "malt flavoring"
Also the Malt o Meal brand too.
Which it may differ from person to person about the malt flavoring, but I know that when I have tried these certain cereals they have made me sick

Here is the info from the Malt-O-Meal Site :
Q: Which cereals are gluten-free?
A: Currently, we produce four gluten-free cereals:

• Malt-O-Meal Corn Bursts®
• Malt-O-Meal Fruity Dyno-Bites®
• Malt-O-Meal Cocoa Dyno-Bites®.

Yes I am in the USA. But for some reason these cereals really get to me.
I know its not from the milk because I do just fine on the Malt O Meal puffed rice.
But they sure do taste alot better then the puffed rice thats for sure

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Correction on the Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles and the Malt O Meal brands of these.
It is actually differ cereals that they suggest as gluten free, but which they all contain malt flavoring. Here is a link to them:
But have found out why the malt o meal cereal brands, Fruity Dyno-Bites and Cocoa Dyno-Bites make me sick is one contains caramel coloring and the other contains yellow 5.
My doc has informed me that I prob should wait to heal up before I try certain things.
Im sorry to put your undies in a bunch about it Richard.

If I sounded a little irritated it's only because I think fourms like this need to provide accurate information. Saying something is gluten-free when it isn't can make people sick, and saying something isn't when it is only makes our lives that much harder. I've certainly made my share of mistakes over the years.

Im just curious as to how UK claims these cereals are ok?
I would think people there are really getting sick from those Cereals?
But I got that link right at Kelloggs site. Thats what came up when I did a search for Gluten free.
I am recently dign with this so I am still trying to sort things out.
I have had this undign for over 6 years, at this point everything still makes me sick, gluten free or not. In this time it has really done its damage. But really good to know that I wasnt losing my mind and its actually a disease.
Have a Great day

The big question is what level causes hidden damage even if there is no obvious reaction. The answer to that is unknown and almost certainly varies according to the individual. I was VERY ill and despite my lack of obvious reactions, elect to stay as gluten-free as possible without driving myself insane over it.
