I'm not an expert on hidden gluten but I would want to know what "Natural Flavor" is and whether there is a chance for cross-contamination in the manufacturing process. If it was me, I'd call the company and ask before trying it. Maybe others are familiar with this particular product.

You need to check on natural flavors--sometimes it comes from wheat, and I've also seen barley. I've not often seen natural flavors from a gluten source, but always check, just in case.

Doesn't seem to be. I would make sure their natural flavoring is gluten-free. But Kashi is good about listing wheat if it's in there, but that still leave barley,rye and oats. I would call to be safe.

Any wheat is required by law to be listed.

Wheat may be required to be listed, but just about everyone on the site can tell you that it can be hidden in alot of things, and that ALOT of products do NOT list all of the gluten in their products.

Kilcan: I apologize for not clarifying. My post was more in reference to another post, that said wheat could be hidden, and I was just clarifying that (I should have quoted, which I didn't). But by law, wheat is supposed to be clearly labeled---and that was my only point.

I fully agree that there are products that don't have a gluten policy, and I fully agree that you should check with the company. Another poster had already made that point, and I agree with it. I am a board member that says you should always check if in question; I was tired last night and didn't write a more detailed response, esp since the correct answer had already been posted.

Hope that you are able to enjoy these :)!

I just spoke with a customer representative and he assured me that the only two Kashi products that are gluten free are the chocolate and vanilla powdered shakes. He said the natural flavors are derived from non-gluten products.
