I am gluten intolerant and have acid reflux and esophageal spasms. I also have food allergies. I am allergic to strawberries, buleberries, shellfish and onions. I also am having reactions to corn and eggs.Right now I eat chicken for breakfast because at first it was the only thing i could eat. Now I am having tromble eating chicken it feels like it is not dijusting. I would like to have cereal for breakfast but I can not find one that is both gulten free & corn free. Does anyone know if there is any cereal that is gluten free & corn free.

Rice Chex. The new apple-cinnamon flavor is very good and they also have the plain and the cinnamon.

We love Fruity Pebbles and Coco Pebbles. Also, I second the Chex and Rice Krispies. Although, my Publix has the gluten-free Rice Krispies on CLEARANCE. I am hoping that they are not quiting making them! I will be so sad.

All of those cereals that others mentioned are NOT CORN FREE. The vitamin enrichment is from corn. I am very allergic to corn and pretty much anything in the USA that is enriched is from corn.

With that said, I use Lundberg White Rice. It is unenriched from a gluten free and corn free facility. I grind it in my blender and make a hot rice cereal with it. It is similar to oatmeal. You can add anything that you want like brown sugar and fruit.

As someone sensitive to corn the only dry cereal I can eat is one I get at a natural market which is only rice...similar to rice krispies but pretty tastless. For hot cereals try buckwheat or quinoa flakes. You have to be very careful about dry cereals...I cannot eat Rice Chex because they have Vitamin E added which is made from corn, and molasses added which unless you known the source may contain corn syrup. Brown rice syrup is also a suspect ingredient in cereals because it may contain corn syrup.

I had spasms also and erosive gastritis from corn. I suggest you visit a site called livecornfree.com to see a list of things made from corn. There are so many I could not even list them here. But to tell you quickly and from the mistakes I made I will list a few...citric acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Honey (bees are sometimes fed high fructose corn syrup and it can be in the honey) ferrous gluconate (this is encountered in canned black olives), Iodized salt, artificial and natural flavors, caramel coloring, lactic acid, enriched white rice (it is enriched by spraying it with a corn ingredient).

A big hug from me about having to also be cornfree as you will feel like you can't eat anything. I know there are a few others here who can't have corn also so know you are not alone. :)

Enjoy Life makes a couple of cereals I like, Crunchy Rice and Crunchy Flax. Corn free, casein free, lactose free. The flax one reminds me a little of Grape Nuts, though not as hard to chew.

Thanks GFreeMo for coming in to help. I was also going to suggest the original poster visit the section of the board called Other Food Intolerances and Leaky Gut Issues as there are others there who can't have corn.

Rice chex did me in. I thought it was CC from corn, but enriched with corn makes sense too. I just eat a banana for breakfast and top it off with ice cream.

Thank you for all the information. I did not know corn was in so many food items. Thank you for suggesting the site livecornfree.com it is very helpful.

I am going to try the Lundberg White Rice.

I couldn't find the white in my area so I ordered it from Amazon.

I grind about half a bag at a time in the blender. Dry. Then I just make the ground up rice in a pot. I usually use 2 1/2 cups of water and 1/3 cup of the ground rice. This feeds 2 people or can be saved for later. I add C&H brown sugar and some fruit. I really like it.

Lisamh, are you new to the diet after a diagnosis or have you been gluten free for some time?

I ask this because if you have just started the diet and have yet to heal your gut, or your intestines due to Celiac, dairy is a large issue at that point. Your issue may not be the Chex, rather the dairy.

If, in fact you have intestinal damage, all foods may be an issue until some healing can take place.

But, I don't know too much about your history. If you have addressed this previously, I apologize. :)

I am new to this diet. I started it May 2 after the GI doctor put me on it. I had an Endoscopy a year ago. The test result was negative for Celiac. I also had a test for wheat but that was negative. The Endoscopy was not to tast for Celiaac. It was done because 2 years ago I went into Anaphylaxis while taken Prednisone. My stomach swelled up so bad that it pushed up into my esophagus my esophagus swelled up so bad that it pushed up into my throat. I had troble breathing and went to the emergency room. After the Anaphylaxis my acid reflex has been bad and I have nerv damage in my back and I also have a muscle in my throat does not open and close right when I eat. I have to eat slow and take small bites. Every time I eat something with wheat I have troble digesting it. The gluten free diet is hard foe me because I hate to try new things because I am scear I could have a reaction to something.

The gluten-free Rice Krispies went on clearance here too. They are now at Big Lots stores. I fear they aren't going to keep making them. I go through 2-3 boxes a week. I've been buying up hoarding what I can find. :o

    • Even gluten-free Foods Triggering Reaction After Initial Glutening?
      I was glutened in July.  Badly.  I have NO clue as to what got me.  I suspect two things 1) a gluten free store- brand, product that might have been mis-labeled and 2) a prescription generic medication (contacted the manufacturer to confirm a gluten-free status but got the old liability statement of no guarantees).  Both items were NEVER consumed by my gluten free hubby who acts as my canary.     I probably got glutened again by eating out while on vacation even though I only at at restaurants recommended by other celiacs.  The rest of the time I was at my parent's house and I have a dedicated kitchen there for us.   Who knows?  But I was sick with anxiety, tummy issues, vomiting, the works.  It was strange since anemia was my original symptom and I really did not have tummy issues at the time of my diagnosis.  So, celiac symptoms can evolve at least for me!  Six weeks after my first sign of a glutening, I was tested by my new GI because I was not getting well.  He thought I had SIBO or bile duct issues. I asked for celiac blood testing.    Turns out it was gluten all along!   During my glutening, I became lactose intolerant again, could only eat stewed foods because everything hurt to get through my digestive tract.   I was a basket case for three months.    Did I mention new problems resulting from my glutening?  Hives, itching, vomiting, passing out and tummy aches almost daily.  Anti-histamines helped.    My GP thinks I am her most "allergic" patient.  Except it was more like a histamine intolerance or a mast cell issue not allergies.   Who knows?  The hives eventually resolved as I healed from my glutening.    I refuse to test the two items that were suspect.    No way!    Three months later, I got dairy back.  Six months later I am eating gluten free anything....without any issues.  I also do not take any meds (except for Armour Thyroid) , supplements, eat out and I avoid even processed gluten-free items.  But, I feel great.     I suppose that I will eventually slip up and get glutened again.  But I am working hard not too.  I like feeling well.   So, really look to your diet.  I bet you just keep getting glutened.  Stick to whole foods, follow the FODMAP diet and wait.  Wait.  Wait.    
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      Chiro?  Hubby went to one with a shoulder injury as recommended by our GP. It was a great experience.    I always resisted.  Why?  Just a "gut" feeling.  Good thing.  My bones started fracturing on their own.  I can not imagine anyone manipulating me now.  If you have celiac disease, get a bone scan first.  Just saying.......
    • Gluten or SIBO; Should I gluten challenge to find out?
      Noobette, sure did use gluten-free oats! I even had to test the oats alone before the test as they sometimes give me problems, probably due to fodmap.  As an update, my symptoms became bad enough that we aborted the challenge. My colleague revealed I was eating the gluten! So I skipped the decoy sample to just get this over with. I'm not sure that my symptoms were celiac, but they were bad either way. Headaches, blurpy noisy gut, fatigue, fogginess, bloating, gas, pains. But those are vague, I'll find out for sure in a few more weeks. 
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      After my blood test (DGP IgA positive), I went crazy eating gluten until my endoscopy.  Because of work issues, I waited for seven weeks.  Seven weeks of saying goodbye to my favorite gluteny foods!  I knew what was coming going gluten free since my hubby has been gluten free for over 14 years.  I was eating a loaf of sourdough a day besides cakes and cookies.  Yum!  But the bad news was that by the time my endoscopy rolled around, I was experiencing tummy issues (just had anemia before).  So, my advice is to take time to say goodbye to gluten, but do not be a glutton (like me!)  
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      It's okay if you have more than 1 cracker a day; the challenge is saying you must have at least 1 cracker a day so if you want to have more that's absolutely fine. In fact, if you want to gorge on all your favorite gluten goodies from now until the endoscopy then have at it because it looks like you'll be saying goodbye to it all after the endoscopy. You say it's about a month till you see the GI doc..... it will be longer until an endoscopy because the GI will have to order it & it will have to get scheduled.
