I'm Hungry For Cereal

Recommended Posts

Okay, I have been gluten free for about 1 month. Most of the gluten free cereals I have tried I don't like. Dose anyone eat mainstream cereals? I hear fruity/cocoa pebbles are gluten free...I would love some feedback about any gluten free cereals

I'd love to help, but "good" is such a relative term - what I think is really good, you might not like at all. I think if you could tell us what your favorites used to be as well as some new things you've tried and not liked, we'll be better able to make some relevant suggestions.

yes....I do like envirokids cereals...in my opinion they have been the best so far. I used to eat kelloggs special K selections alot, and I really liked raison bran crunch. In this first month after being diagnosed with celiac, I read some people won't eat products if they were made on shared equipment. Any thoughts on that?

Rice Chex gets my vote to be one of the main stream cereal product to declare "gluten free" by removing the malt flavoring as a previous ingredient.

Both Fruity& Cocoa Pebbles are gluten free.

I've never eaten them, but I don't think Trix are.

I really like Nature's Path Honey'd Cornflakes and Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice with Berries.

Whole Foods also has a cereal by their own label that tastes like Coco Puffs.

Those are my favorites.

I just bought a box of Rice Chex. The thing I noticed about them is that they are enriched with vitamins/minerals.

I've been eating Perky's but they are not enriched and do not provide any extra vitamins/minerals, only protein and fiber.

I haven't tried them yet, but will be tomorrow morning!

I get Nature Path Organic Corn Flakes and Erewhom Crispy Brown Rice (can also make crispy treats)

Recently I have been getting Rice Chex (look at the box to make sure it is not an old one).

Last night I got General Mills Tigger and Pooh Corn Puffs -- doesn't say gluten free but if you look at the ingredients it doesn't have anything gluten related in it (they also have a Mickey one and Dora).

I have been eating the Berry Berry Kix and loving them! I might get Trix one of these day but I was never a big Trix eater. I also love the Winnie the Pooh crunch and the Dora Stars. I always used kids cereals as a snack, I would eat them dry....I missed that a lot going gluten free.

Fruit Pebbles does not travel well dry for me...

Rice Chex is also a good vote for me!

In my usual rotation I have Crispix, Trix (keep an eye on each box ingredients to be safe), gluten-free Rice Chex, and Western Family Cocoa Moos (like cocoa puffs). Western Family also has a corn pop like cereal that doesn't list anything bad in the ingredients, yet below says it contains wheat. I'll have to drop them an email. I was raised on cold cereal in the summer and oatmeal in the winter. Don't want to change too much! Hope this helps.

I don't believe it is gluten free. Here's the ingredients list from the Kellogg's website.

Ingredients

MILLED CORN, RICE, BROWN SUGAR, SALT, MALT FLAVORING, BAKING SODA, ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C), IRON, NIACINAMIDE, TURMERIC COLOR, ZINC OXIDE, PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B6), RIBOFLAVIN (VITAMIN B2), THIAMIN HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B1), VITAMIN A PALMITATE, FOLIC ACID, VITAMIN B12 AND VITAMIN D.

As I understand it, malt flavoring is off limits.

Crispix is not gluten-free. It contains barley malt. To my knowledge. there is no Kelloggs cereal that is gluten-free.

I buy Puffins at Wegmans , this is wheat free, but is processed on equipment that also processes wheat so if you are very sensitive I wouldn't eat it. I prefer the peanut butter as it is kinda like captain crunch (used to be one of my favorite indulgences) but not as sweet

Peanut Butter Puffins are not gluten-free. They contain mainstream oats that are contaminated with wheat in growing/storing/processing.

http://tinyurl.com/5oufzc

Ingredients

Corn Meal, Dehydrated Cane Juice, Natural Peanut Butter (Ground Peanuts, Salt), Oat Flour, Rice Flour, Sea Salt, Natural Vitamin E (Mixed Tocopherols), Baking Soda.

The only Puffins flavor that is made without gluten ingredientsis the Honey Rice flavor. It is still made on shared lines, though.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

The kellogs website identifies barley malt syrup in the ingredients of crispix (meaning it is not a gluten free product). They admit on the site that there is no kellogs cereal that is truely gluten free.

I haven't been able to find "Chex Cereal" in my grocery stores, but general mills does identify this cereal as truely gluten free, as well as many other products.

This is one of my pet peeves as Kellogs is a Michigan company and I like the idea of buying local products to cut down on transportation costs. And if you research them a bit you will find that Kellogs makes a much better quality product to sell in Europe than they make to sell in the U.S. :angry:
