Real People Cereal

Ok, I was eating Honey Comb until the wheat maffia got to them.

I know Corn Pops were gluten free until they folded too.

Does anyone know what real brands (by real brands I mean Kelloggs, Post, GM, Quaker) that are gluten free?

Oh and why again is Barley malt bad?

Thank you

I'm not keen on all the dye and other chemicals they throw in the Fruity Pebbles and I stay away from the cocoa ones because of my anxiety, I don't touch any of it's triggers.

I guess I'm stuck with pebbles and dye until a few companies decide that shutting out a large portion of their sales is a bad thing.

Well check the genrics, you can some times find a rice puff cereal in the generics thats just rice.

Gluten is in BARLEY, wheat, and rye, and oats

Also should add MALT to that list since its often list just as "malt". Oats are a wild card, first off nearly all oat in America are conimated with wheat, and for the few "pure" one that are out there, there is much debeat if the effect Celiacs or not. I have heard everything form "10% of celiac disease'rs react" to "all celiac disease'rs react" to "none react", and I will not make a call on that. For my family we just assume they are same as wheat and get on with life.

We buy post pebbles for now, and then some of the organic/natural cearels are good but pricey. My son loves Envirokids Panda Puffs ($4 per box at our Korger).

No, since Kroger was hit by the wheat mafia, I'm reduced to (what I'm also very tired of) Barbara's Puffin's Honey Rice cereal. It was delicious at first, but 4 1/2 months later . . . well, a little variety wouldn't hurt. <_<

You may have to go to a Whole Foods or a health food store to find gluten-free cereals, but Mesa Sunrise is a good flake cereal, and Rice Crunchems and Corn Crunchems are just like Chex - you can even make gluten-free Chex mix with them. I used to eat 3 bowls of Cheerios every day for breakfast, and I haven't found a substitute for that, but lately I decided to switch from cereal to protein for breakfast - rolled up turkey and cheese or a bowl of cottage cheese with fruit and nuts, or even chicken sausage. Anything quick. And mostly cheaper than cereal and keeps me full longer. Something to consider. If you like hot cereal, try Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty gluten-free cereal.

Why, oh why, won't these people make a cereal gluten-free AND NOT PROCESS IT WITH PEANUTS!!!!???? My poor celiac son is anaphylactic to peanuts and the Envrokidz are all peanut contaminated. :(

Most gluten-free candy is peanut processed too. Sorry, just had to whine a minute. Valentines hit hard over here! And we are all "life-savered" out! It seems to be the only gluten-free/nut free item around! (Other than special order) :rolleyes:

Honestly, one of the best things for me going gluten-free was finding out the only cereal I could eat was Cocoa Pebbles (can't stand fruity!) , I always ate "healthy" cereals and would not give in to my craving for Cocoa Pebbles, and now I feel like I have a "jsut pass GO" license to eat them, I still don't have them more than once a week, if that, but just knowing that I can.....ooooohhh, I just LOVE it!!!

If Tymber recomends Envirokids -- well, then, it has to be the best!!!!! :lol::lol: He seems to be a child with impeccable taste! :lol:

Remember that picture of him on teh couch watching Thomas? He has a ziplock bag in his hands, filled with Panda Puffs. He likes to eat them that way best. :)

These are things I'm all well aware of, however Clan Thompson is a pretty reliable source for info. SOOO I'm passing it along. I would really hate for someone to get glutened due to lack of info. The post DOES say "Even though the ingredients appear to be gluten-free, Post cereals is now stating that

the"pebbles" cereals are not gluten-free." Meaning, it looks gluten free but it's not. The date they verified was feb 6th (just recently). Anyways, hope the info helps someone, I know I won't be buying anymore until I give a call to the company to verify.

Post has a new Pebbles cereal out - with marshmallows. The ingrediants on that box do contain gluten. The ingredients list on the cocoa and fruity still don't list any gluten products. So hopefully they haven't changed the old ones, it's just the new one we can't have.

When I called I also asked about changes to the forumla and the nice lady told me there was nothing in the system about the forumla being changed. She seemed knowledge about about gluten at least.

I heard from Lani Thompson, publisher of the Clan Thompson lists. She says there was an error on the Mini-List that went out. Cocoa and Fruity Pebbles are gluten-free. She'll send out a correction to list subscribers.
