Until Kelloggs does a cost-benefit analysis that shows how having a gluten-free product will make them money they aren't going to do it is my bet.

General Mills is smart and forward thinking...I saw an article in, hmmm, was it the Wall Street Journal (?) in the last few months that laid out why GM is paying attention to the gluten-free market and changing the ingredients of some products and for others just updating labels. GM did their own research and found that of the population that is eating gluten-free about 80% HAVE TO eat gluten-free for medical reasons and will do so FOR LIFE. GM recognized that if they can build a loyal customer base with that population by having quality products and labels we can trust they will make $$ in the long term. They haven't rushed into it and are doing a lot of focus groups to make sure that the products they tinker with ingredient-wise still taste the same or close enough so gluten eaters will continue to eat them! I know I called GM at one point asking about an ingredient label and when the customer service rep found out I had questions about gluten due to having Celiac Disease she asked if I'd like to participate in any focus groups, try out new products, etc. I was stunned. I couldn't commit to it at the time but after our move is completed this summer I may just call them back and see if they still need participants!

I agree! If they could do it with the Rice Kripsies, why not the Corn Flakes?

I miss Corn Flakes. :(

I got hooked on the gluten-free Rice Krispies. I can make Krispy Treats and use them as bread crumbs in meatballs, and salmon patties. I think I go through at least 2 boxes a week?

My Kroger's has decided to quit cayying them. They're now at Bog Lots. I hope they don't stop making them. If they do..they probably won't bother tinkering with the Corn Flakes? :(

I doubt they will stop make the Rice Krispies, but I do not like them, at least not for a bowl of cereal, I used the the stale almost full box as crumbs for a coating of chicken. That was pretty good. But I do miss Corn Flakes too and Frosted Flakes. Still miss the Rice Krispies.

Chex Cereal cinnamon flavor is a lot like Cinnamon Toast Crunch --one of my favorites for snacking out of the box. If you have not had Cinnamon Toast Crunch for a while you will probably just love the Chex cinnamon flavor.

Chex makes 3 or 4 flavors of cereal that are gluten free.

Frosted Flakes are sickly anyways, I don't miss them at all :unsure:

But there's no replacement for Corn Flakes. Even the Nature's Path Honey'd Corn Flake imitators is no match to the real thing!

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
