Agreed - the listing on the General Mills website does not list wheat starch as an ingredient:

Trix is currently safe but you always have to check the label.

Cheerios if I am not mistaken contain oats which would make them unsafe for us. Hope this helps.

Oats are not unsafe.  You just have to make sure they are not processed on equipment that is contaminated

You are commenting on a 5 year old post. 

 

Oats need to be certified gluten-free as the normal growing/processing of them contaminates them with wheat. Therefore - Cheerios are NOT SAFE for Celiacs

 

 

Also, some Celiacs cannot eat them at all.  That is why it is usually recommended that you wait 6-12 months before trying them.
