Berry Berry Kix

I thought I read on this site that Berry Berry Kix was gluten free. However, it says nothing about that on the box when I finally found it at Super Target. Anyone know?

I have not seen this product is stores for a very long time, but I believe it was reformulated so that it is no longer sweetened with barley malt.

In other words, the entire farm field to grocery store shelf process has not been scrutinized and micro-managed to insure gluten free status as is the case with Rice Chex, but the one gluten containing ingredient has been removed from Berry Berry Kix and replaced with a non-gluten ingredient.

There are several other posts here about the berry kix. I contacted General Mills about this product. I was told that the only certified gluten-free cereal is the rice chex at this time.

I did read the label & it appears okay but again CC issues mmust be considered if you are a sensitive celiac.

Several people on here have been devouring this cereal with no problems that can be felt! I did get a box & had one bowl . I think for me the dye's caused me to get a migraine.. The milk turned red from the red dye. For that reason I will not buy them again. Not because I had any gastro problems but because of the dyes......
