Needing a little help here. I have just purchased Arrowhead Milles Puffed Rice cereal. The only ingredient listed is "puffed whole grain brown rice." I felt really good about this product when I purchased it but now I'm second guessing myself. The package doesn't say gluten free but I think it is. But then the "whole grain" on the side really bothers me.

I'm sure someone else will chime in here............

Curiosity got the better of me so I went to their website (www.arrowheadmills.com).

They do have a bunch of gluten free items, but according to the site, they are labeled as such - and I didn't see cold breakfast cereals listed there.

So I checked out the puffed rice, and it's ingredients say exactly what you said - "Ingredients: puffed whole grain brown rice."

This probably doesn't help one bit - because I'm not sure what that really means. :blink:

I am not familiar with that product, but if it contained wheat, by law, it must be listed on the ingredient list or allergen statement. Whole grain rice is listed.

I would guess that it does not say gluten free because it is not made in a dedicated facility/line, or perhaps they have never tested it. Ingredient wise I would not worry about it since there is only one ingredient. :)
