Hello all!

I was so excited about the new "gluten free" labeling on Rice Chex. I began eating them and my gut swelled - very slowly over days. I kept trying to put it on other things, but I didn't add anything new during that time.

I have only been on the diet for a little over a year, so I am so super careful, I am not used to getting gluten in a low dose. Either I have been "glutened" or had no reaction yet.

Has anyone else reacted yet to the Rice Chex? Is this what it is like to have gluten in a low dose? My symptoms was just swelling, slightly crazy feeling, and tons of gas. :blink:

Thanks for input in advance!

We've eaten a whole box of them in our house, and have not had any reaction.

Hope you get to the bottom of things.

The symptoms you describe are what happen to me when I eat rice bran. Check the ingredient list for that.

Thanks for your help! It must be something else. In the gluten-filled world we live in--let's face it--it could be anything.

I will give them another try. Thanks! :)

So are you saying the ingredients haven't changed (i.e. have malt flavoring) but are labeled as gluten free?

The ingredients changed, but I thought maybe there was CC going on.
