    Celiac.com 01/13/2021 - We get a lot of questions about which breakfast cereals are gluten-free, and we recently created a list of nearly one hundred gluten-free breakfast cereals.

    We've also compiled a list of UNSAFE non-gluten-free breakfast cereals.

    But, the questions keep coming, especially about some of the most popular cereals that are not gluten-free. The number of popular breakfast cereals that are not gluten-free is too long to count, but we get a lot of questions about Kellogg's Corn Pops. Specifically, is Corn Pops gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease?

    The sad answer to that question is 'No.' Despite the fact that Corn Pops are made from milled corn, the ingredients include wheat flour. Since Corn Pops cereal is made with wheat flour, Corn Pops is not gluten-free and not safe for children (or adults) with celiac disease.

    Interestingly, in addition to being one of the most popular breakfast cereals, Kellogg's Corn Pops have seen more name changes than just about any other breakfast cereal. Introduced in 1950 as Corn Pops, the name was changed to Sugar Corn Pops, then to Sugar Pops, then to Sugar Corn Pops in 1978, then back to Corn Pops in 1984, then to Pops for a few months in 2006, and finally, the name was changed back to Corn Pops. Whew! After all those changes, Corn Pops are still not gluten-free, so avoid them if you have celiac disease.

    Check the company website for more information on Kellogg's Corn Pops, and other Kellogg's products.

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    One of the difficult aspects of being a parent, especially if you are dealing with allergies, is to try and find a food that is nutritious, affordable and more importantly—finding one that all of my kids will enjoy! 
    When I discovered  Erewhon's gluten-free Crispy Brown Rice Cereal, I just had to give it a try.  The ingredient list is simple, which I love (only 3 ingredients total), and it is low in fat and has only 1 gram of sugar per serving.  It is also made with 100% whole grains. 
    When I first opened the package, it reminded me of a well known cereal that I grew up with.  I popped a few in my mouth and I was not disappointed!  This gluten-f...
