    Because Kellogg's Corn Flakes contain malt flavoring derived from barley they cannot be considered gluten-free, and they are not recommended for people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. 

    But Kellogg's aren't the only corn flakes on the block. The brands of corn flakes listed below are labeled gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease.

    Top Brands of Gluten-Free Corn Flakes:

    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.

    Celiac.com 10/10/2016 - Good news for anyone on a gluten-free diet who misses their beloved Lucky Charms breakfast cereal.
    Lucky Charms joins a number of General Mills' other brands with gluten-free versions, including Chex and Cheerios. In this case, the company turned an old brand into a gluten-free product.
    Like Cheerios, Lucky Charms are made from oats, which are gluten-free, except that most major commercial oat supplies have minor, but problematic, amounts of other grains.
    To solve that, General Mills has created a process that sorts "out the small amount of wheat, rye and barley in our supply of whole oats that are inadvertently introduced at the farms where the oats are grown, or during transportation of the whole oats to our mill," according to the company.
    General Mills has applied for patents on their unique sorting process that ensures General Mills’ gluten-free cereals meet the FDA's strict guideline for gluten free, said Emily Thomas, senior marketing manager for Lucky Charms in a press release.
    One advantage of General Mills sorting process is that it allows the company to formulate gluten-free options without altering their recipes, or changing their flavor.
    One thing consumers can count on, says Thomas, is that “…the recipe won't change. It will maintain the same great, magically delicious taste that Lucky Charms fans love."

    Celiac.com 12/31/2020 - One question we get a lot is about gluten-free breakfast cereals. Specifically, which brands of breakfast cereals are gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease?
    Finding a good gluten-free breakfast cereal can be a challenge. Fortunately more and more manufacturers are making gluten-free breakfast cereals, so the choices are many. Here are nearly a hundred of America's top gluten-free cereal brands. These top breakfast cereal brands are labeled "Gluten-Free." That means that you can breath extra easy about serving them to people with celiac disease.
    Note that some cereals on this list use gluten-free oats, and ~10% of people with celiac disease also have an oat intolerance (to avenin protein), so they may also need to exclude the cereals on this list that contain oats.

    Celiac.com 01/08/2021 - We know Trix is for kids, but is Trix cereal gluten-free for celiac kids?
    We get a lot of questions about which breakfast cereals are gluten-free, and we recently made up 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 Trix. Specifically, is Trix gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease?
    According to the General Mills Web site, Trix does not contain any gluten ingredients, however, they do not use the "gluten-free" claim on their label. They also do not include "wheat" as a possible allergen and say "Does Not Contain Any of the 8 Major Allergens":
    So, Trix is naturally gluten-free, and doesn't include "wheat" as an allergen warning, so it may be suitable for some children (or adults) with celiac disease. However, Celiac.com recommends that people with celiac disease choose a cereal that does include "gluten-free" on its packaging because this means that the manufacturer is actively monitoring each batch for cross-contamination issues, and it appears that this may not be happening yet with Trix cereal.
    Check the company website for more information on Trix and other General Mills products.
