Do you know if the new coco cereal is casein free as well as gluten free? I looked at the ingredients and it didnt say it had milk ingredients in it which I thought all the food manufacturers had to put on the boxes starting 1/06. But I did notice some risky ingredients that might contain casein or milk products. Anyone know for sure? It would sur ebe cool if it was GFDF, but I dont think I would buy it for a coupel more months just because of the risk of cross contamination.

Thanks for the word! Just is it casein free?

New GI doctor not convinced I have UC but maybe Microscopic Colitis

Dx'd With gluten and casien sensativity through Enterolab

I do not *know*, but since this is a new label create post-1/2006 it should list milk if it was in there.

Terps--I just got back from WalMart--my hairdryer conked out on me today :angry: . Anyway, I read the Cocoa Puffs label--it had a date of 2006 under the address and did not list any allergens. I looked thru the ingredients and did not see anything that would indicate dairy or gluten. The box said 'more chocolatey taste' on the front.

Yes Vincent--exactly like that! :D But I was really answering the question of whether or not it had casein. ;) I wanted to be sure and describe the box so there was no misunderstanding.

I can finally make me some cocoa puff treats!!! :D

Same as rice crispy treats but use cocoa puffs instead and add peanut butter to the marshmallow.

Tastes like it were Reeses treats!

Wow, that sounds pretty good, actually. I've had bad experiences with odd cereal treats (dorm used to make them out of whatever stale cereal they had leftover), but with the addition of pb, sounds awesome!


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

Okay guys, I was in my grocery store the other day holding a box of the NEW Trix (no wheat starch listed on the ingredient panel). I called just to make sure they were gluten free and the idiot on the phone told me that they were NOT gluten free because it had this listed "corn (whole grain, flour, meal)" as an ingredient. I asked her doesn't that just mean corn flour? She said no, it means flour. So what do you guys think? Was the lady just an idiot or does it have wheat flour in it? I didn't buy it because I was so mad, but I would really like to have some Trix.

NO thats not the gluten-free trix.

The only gluten-free Trix I found say "75% less sugar" on the front, and "flour" is NOT in the ingredients.

I have a box of Trix that I thought was gluten-free and it says the same thing. I also assumed it meant CORN flour because of the way it is listed:

"Corn (whole grain corn, flour, meal), Sugar....."

I haven't eaten it yet though.... not sure what to do now!

PS - for people who like Chocolate & PB - I mix Cocoa Puffs and Envirokids PB Panda Puffs together - YUM! :P

Nope, this was one of the new boxes. I confirmed that on the phone. I assumed that it meant corn flour, but the lady argued with me. I imagine they're probably safe, but she certainly didn't say so. The old Trix used to have wheat starch listed as an ingredient, not wheat flour. This box DID NOT have wheat starch listed on the ingredients, just "corn (whole grain, flour, meal), blah blah". It seams to me that it means "whole grain corn, corn flour, corn meal", but I called just to be safe. Actually, this wasn't one of the boxes that says 75% less sugar. Those boxes all had wheat starch. There were three different style boxes available and the lady assured me that I had picked up the most recent formulation.

I think you're right, Guhlia--it looks like all corn to me.

It could possibly be derived from gluten. Natural flavoring is usually ok but you have to check to be sure unless its a brand that won't hide anything. Do you have a list of brands that will not hide any gluten? Do you have the list of things that gluten can hide under?

I have TWO of the boxes here, neither say flour at all on them, nor any wheat. Prehaps I should take more pictures? :D If they did I would not buy them. As far as I have been able to find wth the trix only the very newest 75% sugar free ones no longer have gluten in them

Katie: THis is a General Mills company, so no worries about the natural flavors.

THANKS FOR YOUR RESPONSE. NO, I DO NOT HAVE A LIST OF HIDDEN GLUTEN. I HAVE LEARNED MORE FROM THESE POSTS THAN FROM ANYWHERE ELSE. I HAD A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT JUNE OF 05. MY DAUGHTER WAS MY DONOR(29 YEARS OLD). I STILL HAVE A PROBLEM WITH OXALATES. CALCIUM OXALATE IS THE MOST COMMON FORM OF KIDNEY STONE. I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING A DIET WHICH IS LOW IN OXALATES, MEANING I AVOID CHOCOLATE, TEA, SPINACH ETC. TO TRY TO FIND OUT WHY I HAD THESE OXALATES, I WAS IN A RESEARCH PROGRAM ATHE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS SOUTHWESTERN IN DALLAS. THE DOCTORS WERE TESTING FOR MALABSORPTION FROM CELIAC SPRUE. THE TESTING WAS INCONCLUSIVE, BUT I WAS PUT ON A GLUTEN FREE DIET. MUCH OF MY GASTRO PROBLEM IMPROVED. I AM SCHEDULED FOR A BIOPSY VERY SOON, AND THEN ANOTHER 5 OR 6 DAYS BACK IN THE HOSPITAL FOR FOLLOW UP.

GLUTEN FREE PRODUCTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN THE NEAREST TOWN TO ME. I AM TRYING TO EDUCATE MYSELF AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. BEING ON BOTH OF THESE DIETS GETS CONFUSING.....THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE INFORMATION FOUND HERE.....

Yes please, Vincent... :) If I can't have the real thing here, at least I could drool over the ingredients of your box... :D I actually would like to see it so I know what I"m looking for next time because the box I saw that said 75% less sugar had wheat starch listed as one of the ingredients way down at the bottom.
