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

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
