Lucky Charms

5 posts in this topic

I occationally LOVE a bowl of Lucky Charms. I know they are horrible for me, but what can I say???? I haven't had any since going gluten free. I know GM is usually good about labeling any unsafe ingrediants. I don't see anything that is unsafe, but am I missing anything? I really don't want to give in to my craving and suffer. :blink:

As far as I know, oats are generally unsafe. They are too likely to be CC with a fair amount of wheat from wheat growing in the oat fields, grain elevators, and trucks. The only oats that are safe for celiacs (if you tolerate oats at all) are the specially grown and handled gluten-free ones.

If you want a sweet, flavored cereal, Trix doesn't have any gluten ingredients. I don't know how careful they are about CC from other cereals when they package it.

I'd say no the Lucky Charms. I understand the craving as that's one of my guilty faves I held onto from childhood, too. But, it's all about the marshmallows and we can have those! My mil buys big bags of those dehydrated marshmallows from a bulk style Amish store. Put them on some Rice Chex and it's a good substitute.

Yes, you're missing something -- oats and oat flour. Unless a product has oats that are specially grown and processed to avoid contamination, oats are an absolute no-no because of heavy wheat contamination.

Fruity Pebbles are gluten-free too if you have a sweet, junky cereal craving. I eat those with no problems.
