gluten-free Cereal
0

16 posts in this topic

Hey! My question is abut gluten-free cereal. I have been eating gluten-free cornflakes or Gorilla Munch ever since I found out I have Celiac Disease. I haven't found anything else that I like. My FAVORITE cereal before Celiac Disease was shredded wheat. Why is it NOT possible to find a gluten-free cereal made into a shredded wheat type of texture? Or I would even be happy with a cereal made of corn that tasted like Cinnamon LIFE. I don't understand why we can't have a bigger cereal selection.

Also, another question. Has anyone tried the new Coconut Milk Ice Cream made by So Delicious?? Native Sun has the yogurt (which I don't think is gluten free), but I can't find the Ice Cream anywhere. I'm dying to know if anyone has tried it, and how they like it. Thanks!!

It's all about texture in cereal, isn't it.

I'm currently eating Rice Chex and adding some shredded coconut to it (the large shreds - I get it at Whole Foods). Not exactly like shredded wheat, but still a nice texture. You have to eat it quickly because the Rice Chex will get soggy much faster than shredded wheat will, and to help it stay crispy I only use enough milk to wet but not soak.

For a more crunchy, granola like texture, I add Nutty Rice cereal by Perky's, along with the coconut and some raisins, or maybe dried cranberries.

Coconut milk ice cream???? Ooooh, that should be good! Non dairy??? (hope, hope)

I'm actually not sure what Cinnamon Life tastes like but Cinnamon Amaranth Snaps taste alot like Cinnamon Toast Crunch without all the sugar :D

This is slightly off topic, but not really...

... but I noticed that if you put Rice Chex into your ice-cream or other frozen dessert, it tastes just like an ice cream cone, and it's really, really good.

Then if you make a Sundae with a couple of scoops, plus banana slices, chocolate syrup, nuts or coconut or whatever sprinkled on top, and you add the Rice Chex, you get something like an ice cream cone Sundae... and it's really, really good.

I've also made something like the Chex party mix... adding gluten-free pretzels.

I eat a lot of Rice Chex, but I never eat a bowl of cereal!!!

Thanks for the Rice Chex advice. I'll try that this weekend w/ ice cream.

DD hasn't had an ice cream "cone" since she was dxd and I was going to try my hand at a homemade sundae bowl cone this weekend.

I hope you report back how that ice cream bowl thing turns out for your DD.

I saw gluten-free ice cream cones in the health food store one time... I don't remember the brand name, was tempted to buy, but the cost was absolutely outrageous.

I keep dreaming of a way that Rice Chex could somehow be pressed together and rolled into an ice cream cone... but... ??????

I'd like to get a waffle cone making machine and learn to make my own gluten-free ice cream cones, someday. REally, to me, the Rice Chex taste so much like I remember ice cream cones tasting it's unbelieveable... if only they could be mashed into a flat shape, pressed together in some waffle cone maker, and would dry out to a crisp cone... guess I dream pretty BIG, hey????? :lol:

When I first saw the title I didn't realize ya'll were talking only cold cereal, but I'll stick my 2 cents in anyway! I love eating sweetened quinoa or corn meal or even a mix as a hot cereal replacement. A little brown sugar, cinnamon, and if I'm feeling daring, a handful of raisins, and it's just as good as the Quaker Oats stuff. The trick is that you MUST soak the quinoa or at least bring to a boil, swish around, and discard the water and start over. You can get away without soaking quinoa in other dishes, especially savory ones, but this needs it to be mild and you can't skip it. :) bon appetit!

My daughter likes Trix, Fruity and Coca Pebbles, and some chocolate cereal in a bag put out by Safeway. I want to say Cocoa Astros or something like that.

She has tried the coconut yogurt by So Delicous and loves the vanilla and raspberry. For a frozen dessert, she likes Coconut Bliss.

Purely Decadent cookie dough is awesome, especially melting over a bowl of hot apple crisp...

Or with a dollop of peanut butter. But I say that about everything.

I found this yummy cereal! It calls itself a granola, but it's got rice flakes,dried fruit bits, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, almonds, sesame seeds, pecans and its sweetened with raisin juice concentrate, honey and cranberry. It's Gluten free, Wheat free, Trans Fat free, Dairy free, Cholesterol free, Low in saturated Fat, low in Sodium and Casein Free. It's delicious! It's called "Nutty Cranberry Maple Granola" and it's made by "Bakery on Main". I found it in my local health food store. Once I fell in love with it, I discovered I could order it online at "www.bakeryonmain.com" Happy eating.

Susan :)

The same company that makes Gorilla Munch, makes Peanut Butter Panda Puffs (corn puffs) and Whole O's (looks like cheerios) they are all made at gluten free facilities. I can find them at most my local grocery stores in the southern US. They are awesome!

I also love Rice Chex and Corn Chex!

I keep the Purely Decadent ice cream in cookie dough on hand most the time, with Eddy's slow churned chocolate too!

cereal is my most favorite part of the day..so I am happy that I am able to eat some of the cereals...

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
