They are not taking gluten out of the oats, but are sourcing gluten-free oats. Just want to clear that up for any newbies!

Glad that there are more cereal options out there! Let's hope the price is reasonable. The cost of cereal is shocking!

Actually... they aren't using gluten-free oats.  The reason regular oats are not gluten-free is because of harvesting, growing, transporting, etc.  They become cc'd with wheat.  Cheerios says they have a way to use these cheaper non-gluten-free oats and separate out the stray wheat seeds.  "some are troubled by General Mills’ decision to use oats that are mechanically processed to eliminate cross-contamination from gluten-containing grains instead of oats that are specifically grown to be gluten free."

 

Right now, Cheerios is hosting a "conference" for some bloggers and associations to try to reassure us that the Cheerios, using regular cc'd oats, will be gluten free.  I hope that they test the cereal before selling it.  We will see what comes of that soon.

Noooo not gluten-free rice krispies!  Ah well never really bought them just like having the option.  I have read that growth in the gluten-free products market is slowing down, so I highly suspect the "bubble" in the market will pop eventually, and we will see a lot of the gluten-free products from mainstream brands pulled.  Hopefully the good gluten-free brands that we all know and love will survive all of it.

 

As for gluten-free cheerios, they will probably be fine to eat.  While I don't like that they are not sourcing gluten-free grown oats, I understand that a huge production could never get enough gluten-free oats to meet their demand.   They are using a technology that has been honed and perfected in manufacturing processes for quite a while, which i suspect may be an automated optical/mechanical sorting, or something similar.  Obviously they are going to stay tight lipped about that trade secret, but it would make me feel better if they at least released info on how often things are tested, etc.  Bottom line, though, is if they didn't have total confidence this was FDA compliant, they wouldn't do it.  So, after a while of them being out I may try them.  A lot of gluten-free cereals lack in fiber and such and it will be nice to have another option.

If you all would read the links! Lol

"ELISA testing, performed after sorting and once the groats are milled into flour, validates that each batch is indeed clean and free of gluten."

"Note that the cleaned oat flour will be transported to manufacturing facilities and used on dedicated (and enclosed) lines "
