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.
