Barbara's Bakery Puffins Cereal?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This cereal is wheat-free (and delicious!) and I've been eating it for the past few months. One of the flavors is rice flour only, but the others are made from a combination of corn and oat flours. I've never gotten sick from them...should I be worried?

Oats are not gluten free. You can buy gluten free oats but the oats in the Puffin cereal are not gluten free.

The cereal needs to say gluten free...not just wheat free. Hope that helps.

I would avoid the puffins cereal that has oat flour...I have been eating it since I have was diagnosed w/ Celiac in early November, and have not felt any improvement in my sensitive stomach.....Just noticed that the Puffins peanut butter flavored cereal was not gluten free, just wheat free....I'm hoping that is why my small intestine has not repaired itself yet......

What about regular milk chocolate candy that has no cookie pieces of any kind in it? That ok? Also, I don't believe I'm lactose intolerant, but I read where if you have Celiac you should avoid dairy while you are trying to heal? Is that true?

Thanks for the help!

If you're just getting started and trying to heal, I'd stick to things that are clearly labeled gluten-free and not take any chances. I'm not sure what to tell you about dairy, as I've been avoiding dairy for longer than I've been avoiding gluten.
