I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, but thought I'd ask anyway......a friend told me that she is using Kix cereal in a snack for her son's class. There is a little girl in the class that is gluten-free and her mom told my friend that Kix was ok to use.

I don't think so......I looked on here as best I could, but apparently you have to have more than 3 letters in a word to look it up....I kept getting a kick back when I typed in Kix to search.

So, does anyone have info on this that it IS gluten-free???? It has oat flour in it, which means CC to me, and I'm not going there.

Thanks!!!

The only cereal that is gluten free are fruity and cocoa pebbles. There is also a Dora the Explorer cereal that I have heard is gluten free. My wife makes cocoa pebbles crispy treats that are awesome. She makes them just like rice crispy treats.

This should probably read "The only MAINSTREAM cereal..." Specialty food stores (like Whole Foods) generally have a variety of gluten-free cereals. Also, more and more "normal" grocery stores are starting to stock gluten-free stuff.

Oh my gosh, envirokids makes a cereal called Gorilla Munch that is exactly like Kix but even sweeter :) I love them and eat some everyday!

(Sorry if someone already said that, I'm in a hurry so I couldn't read all the previous replies)

Yeah! This cereal is great. It's so sweet that it's almost kinda like a replacement for Captain Crunch for me, but not as sweet. :)

I miss my Rice Krispies though <_< what's the best substitute that you all use for those?

I have had celiac for 12 years. I avoided Kix until just recently. I understand as long as oats are grown and processed apart from wheat they are okay >> maybe they switched in those areas. I don't know but I sure am glad to be able to eat them again !

I too enjoy the Gorilla Munch > cross between Kix and Captain Crunch to me !!

The problem with Kix, and all other cereals that I know of, is the oats that they are made from AREN'T the ones that are grown separately from wheat. THey are contaminated with gluten. Do not eat Kix - they are not safe.

:o I NEED A LITTLE HELP HERE. MY DAUGHTER IS ON A GLUTEN FREE DIET, SHE IS AUTISTIC. I JUST RECENTLY FOUND OUT THAT SHE ALSO HAS A PEANUT & WALNUT ALLERGY THAT IS LIFE THREATING. SHE USED TO EAT KIX ALL THE TIME THEN I SWITCHED IT TO THE GORILLA MUNCH. I CALLED ENVIROKIDZ ( THE MAKER OF GORILLA MUNCH ) AND FOUND OUT THAT THEY USE PEANUT BUTTER IN THE FACILITY. SO I AM LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT THAT IS GLUTEN & PEANUT FREE. DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A CERAL LIKE KIX THAT IS MADE WITHOUT GLUTEN IN A PEANUT FREE FACILITY ? PLEASE RESPOND A.S.A.P...........THANK YOU :)

Someone responded a few weeks ago about cocoa pebbles has changed the recipe and is no longer safe. As is Trix. SOmething about the POST cereals were changing the recipe on how items were made. ALways check ingredients before buying.

We buy Erewhon cereal that is just like rice krispies. They have a few different kinds, all made with brown rice. Some are sweetened with berries and some are just plain. I like the plain ones.

Corn and Rice Chex are also gluten free. I was suspicious of Kix when it did not have the Gluten Free label, in spite of the lack of warnings on the box, since Geeral Mills puts the Gluten Free label on when it applies.

This is a really old thread from 2007. Kix actually do not have oat flour and are now considered gluten free. A lot of companies don't put "gluten free" on the label but it doesn't necessarily mean their product isn't safe for us. Be careful to notice the dates when you see a thread, often times even a thread from a year ago has out of date information.

YIKES!! I started reading this thread, not realizing the old date, and completely flipped for a moment...I've been eating Berry Berry Kix for the past week and thought it was safe-- it is! I'm not losing my mind after all :P I double checked my box and there are NO gluten ingredients listed. Doesn't mean there isn't some chance of cross-contamination, I guess, but I'm not ultra-sensitive and I've been eating it for a week with no symptoms, so I guess I'm good!
