Why aren't we supposed to have malt of any kind? All cereals have it in there (or something else we aren't supposed to have) I used to eat Rice Krispies and Corn Flakes all the time, and recently found out I wansn't supposed to have malt. It has never bothered me, should I still not eat it?

We can't have malt made from barley, and unless you call to find out, you should assume that "malt" is derived from barley. Yes, almost all mainstream cereals have it - we all hate that fact with a vengance and think it's one of the stupider things about mainstream foods; the cereals certainly don't need it. But yes, you do need to stay away from it, because even though it is a small quantity, it will still cause damage to a celiac's intestines, which will keep your body unhealthy and increase your risk for long term serious complications (diabetes or thyroid disorder, osteoporosis, cancer, etc.).
