Health Valley Cereals Okay?

Recommended Posts

I was at Whole Foods for the first time this week and saw these cereals. I didn't see anything in the ingredients that looked like gluten so I put some in my cart, but when I went to the customer service desk to get a list of the gluten-free foods they offer, these cereals were not on it. So do they have gluten in them?

Ingredients: Milled yellow corn, corn bran, evaporated cane juice, salt, natural Vit. E (from soy). (made in a facility that handles tree nuts)

Is there something wrong with milled corn or corn bran???

Couple points:

1. The ingredients themselves look fine to me. Especially since it doesn't list that it was prepared in a facility with wheat!

2. The omission of it on the gluten-free list does NOT in itself mean it isn't gluten free. Lists can make mistakes, not be updated, the product could be new to the store, etc.

So, I would call the company or look on their website to make sure it is safe.

I was just at celiac camp and we had the rice one by this company. I don't think they would have served it if it wasn't gluten free since it was all celiacs. :)

Sweet! I have missed my Corn Chex for the last month! Woo hoo! I'm sure this will be a good substitute :D

I guess their list wasn't up to date?

I eat both of these all the time and they are good.


Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW-- What a Ride!

I don't know about their production, but the ingredients look fine. My son eats them, and we even make muddy buddies out of them. Not all of their cereals are gluten free, so always read the labels. :)
