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!

I am super sensitive but have found that I can eat only the unflavored chex, kix, berry kix, our local grocery store's fruity rice and the cookie crisp sprinkles..

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

    • Anxiously waiting
      Thanks heaps. I will def be going private if the wait is too long. I have done a little research but i thought a gluten intolerance and coeliac was the same lol. My iron levels are just below average apparently but she said not bad enough for me to be this tired.

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?

      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.
