I think I did the first time I tried them :( I have another box though and I'm trying to work up the courage to test again to make sure it wasn't something else. I'll be watching this thread to see if anyone else reports having issues with them.

I am happy to report that I have no reaction whatsoever :)

... and I am VERY sensitive to gluten and react rather quickly with several nasty reactions. <_<

Thanks....I guess its the Lactaid milk........again...Gosh, dairy is so much harder to give up than gluten for me! I got bloating, gas and a headache...I thought Lactaid was suppose to help so I guess it really is casein. BUMMER! AGH.

I'm with you! My 3 year old son is gluten free, limited dairy and I find the dairy so much harder to work around!

Sorry to burst your bubble but Rice Crispies have Malt in them and in Canada they have Barley and Malt so they are not considered Gluten Free, although it is probably a very small amount of it; it is still considered to contain gluten.....BUT they now make gluten free rice crispies information on that is on the thread below :)

Gluten Free Rice Krispies are now available in the US. There are no plans by Kelloggs, at this point, to bring the product to the Canadian market.

I've tried them. My problem is that they just don't taste very good--not like real Rice Krispies. I think that perhaps it's because they use brown rice instead of white rice. Somehow everyone who manufactures gluten free products (with the exception of God bless 'em General Mills with their Chex line) seems to think that we're all health food nuts who want bland tasting "natural" cerials that taste worse than the stuff I feed my horse. I had high hopes for these but unfortunately Kellogs has not come through.

I have tried the gluten free Rice Krispies...I had MAJOR issues after eating .  I'm wondering about cross-contamination with barley/malt, as I am more sensitive to barley than to wheat.......

i just looked this up (plain rice krispies - kelloggs website) because they are now running a commercial ad that says the only thing rice krispies contains is rice.  i thought it used to contain barley malt.  the ingredients on the website currently lists 'malt flavor' - - - - ?  WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? 

 

lolz - they use 'carmine' to color red cherries in canned fruit cocktail - i looked it up because i wanted to be sure it was ok.  and, YAY!  carmine is gluten free!  it is also made of CRUSHED UP BUG BODIES.....  so, it's safe to eat but now i don't want to....  ;)

I second this.  If I wanted them made of brown rice, I'd have gotten the nasty Erewhon ones.  They don't taste like the originals, they don't crunch like the originals.  You can use them for rice krispie treats, but they're not much good in a bowl with milk.  Yuk.

The G F Rice Krispies are  NOT CROSS CONTAMINATED.

I eat them sometimes and I would feel it, believe me. 

 

THEIR WEBSITE: "We produce it in a separate facility and test each batch to make sure that it’s gluten-free".

I eat gluten-free Rice Krispies as part of my breakfast food rotation, and have never had a problem. There were so many years that I did not eat Rice Krispies due to the barley, that I honestly don't remember the original ones well enough to make a comparison. But I like the gluten-free ones. I also eat Rice Chex and Corn Chex (for the latter, I stock up whenever I am south of the border).

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
