Rice Chex Is Now Gluten Free!

Recommended Posts

Here's the scoop. General Mills has reformulated Rice Chex. A phone call to General Mills confirms that it is true. The new formulation does not contain barley malt. The new boxes are rolling out to stores now, but you may not see them for a few months. The new boxes say gluten free on them. Read the box carefully because we will be seeing both for a while.

Here is a link: http://www.bellinstitute.com/wic/topic/sec...amp;itemID=6173

I saw this on another celiac board and am just sharing the good news. It's always great to have another mainstream cereal available.

Awesome :D !!! Although I have JUST realized that I have to kick the dairy [like, yesterday...so haven't searched out alternatives yet] But no worries, because Chex Mix dry is great when you have a craving for something just to munch on!

OMG - OMG - OMG! If I have to eat another bowl of Cocoa Pebbles, I think I will die! Because of my nut allergy, it is hard to find cereals that don't cost $6.00 a box without traces of nuts. I need to get rid of the sugar, but I NEED cereal in a big way.

You have made my month!!!!!

I went out at lunch to buy a box and found it at the first store I went to. Not only does it say gluten free on the front of the box, there is a couple of sentences on the back of the box talking about how it is a good choice for those following a gluten free lifestyle.

Someone actually asked me why I was hugging a box of cereal when I came back to work. The nerve! :)

That is so funny. I just got a flyer in the mail yesterday for the Celiac Convention in Los Angeles and it said it was sponsored by Rice Chex. I thought they had barley malt in them and was gonna look it up but forgot about it until now. So not only are they gluten free they are sponsoring a celiac convention!!! How exciting!!! :D

I admit I am a chicken. I am also heartbroken that Wegmans has discontinued thier gluten-free cornflakes with strawberrys. Please if any of the supersensitive folks try this stuff, post back and tell us how it went. I am very leery of CC issues as I react really badly and hope this will really be safe.

That is so cool! They really seem to be taking this seriously. Sponsoring a celiac convention shows that they are really wanting to reach out to our community. I found the flyer about the convention you are talking about, Looks like a good time!

My son and I are really sensitive to even a trace of CC. We both had a bowl yesterday and have had no ill effects so far. We generally react within 2 hours. So far so good!
