Gluten-Free Cinnamon Chex
0

24 posts in this topic

Does anybody else have problems with bloat or any symptoms after eating Chex? I havent eaten any, either as a snack or cereal, for three days and the bloating has lessened in severity. Today i finally ate about a handful and a few min later didnt feel to grand and now im bloating up real good.

Everyone is different and there may be something else in them that bothers you, but for what it's worth all 4 in my family eat Chex cereals regularly...my girls would eat a box a day if I let them.

Yeah maybe it is something else like BHT. Or some other preservative. I was gonna go whole foods anyway so i will probably just cut it out for a while. Thx for your input.

I don't eat much Cinnamon Chex at a time, maybe only 1/2 cup (or less) is a serving for me, or maybe I should say that amount satisfies me. I have not noticed a bloated feeling. But I usually do not want more than the 1/2 cup or less of Cinnamon Chex.

My DS got the crazies after eating them. In comparing them to regular rice chex, my guess was the dyes in it. Not sure that could cause bloating but it may be something to watch for in other things.

Some days when i get called into work, i eat it as a snack off and on throughout the morning and early afternoon

Thats a good point. I think i need to all natural and organic and as little processed foods as possible.

The cinnamon chex got me bad and I'm not sure what it was in it as the honey nut has always been fine. The first time I tried it I was eating every day (ok, sometimes more than once a day) and I bypassed my usual initial 'glutening' symptoms, which are all digestive and moved straight onto the dizziness and balance issues which I don't usually get unless I'm glutened badly or repeatedly. It was like the contamination was so low it took a cumulative effect to get me. I did a thread about it here at the time and a bunch of other people mentioned issues with the cinnamon one that they hadn't had with other flavours. No idea what it is about it though.

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. I ditched that junk. Considering that, i wouldnt trust them then if i cant trust one. I noticed it didnt have so great a taste after all or it maybe i have now gotten use to the taste of all natural ingredients. I can say it tastes a whole lot better to make your own foods out of fresh ingredients. Its amazing :-)

That looks like a wonderful source and thanks for sharing. I did not eat any this morning and i felt a lot better. I didnt bloat and start feeling real weak and have trouble expanding my lungs. Its hard to distinguish when you know you are still healing. I will definitely use that site in the future i am sure. :)

No gluten there, but BHT and lots of artificial stuff that you might react to.

Considering that, maybe i should check my toothpastes and stuff, i think i heard that BHT is used in many things.

I reacted to even the rice chex. I mainly stay away from processed foods. I seem to react to extremely low levels of cc.

Ditto.

The only processed foods I eat are olive oil, some spices and coffee. If I change it, I get zapped.

I like the Cinnamon Chex, sometimes I feel like crud after eating them. Maybe I'll try the corn chex!

Okay, I have had a bad reaction from eating foods with certain dyes in them.

That is to say that I suspect that the dyes in the foods are what caused my bad reaction symptoms.

Oh wow. Welcome. Yes I have switched to your regular bacon, eggs, buckwheat meal and rice cakes with jam or peanut butter in the mornings. Fruit as well. Once in a while I may make pancake batter but not usually because I work too much to have the time for it.

My son was having stomach issues this past spring and after reading posts on here I started to suspect the cinnamon chex where CC with gluten. So much so that I bought the ELISA test strips and kept the box he was eating from. They checked out A-OK!! It turned out to be gastritis that was irritated by certain foods, one of which was the cinnamon chex. I'm guessing there is some ingredient that is tough on the fragile or healing celiac gut.

That may just be true.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
