Corn Chex Is Now gluten-free!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Read this on another forum, and I am passing the word. General Mills has reformulated Corn Chex to be gluten-free. It is in BIG LETTERS on the front of the box. Watch out because we will be seeing both kinds on the shelf for a while.

I spoke with General Mills customer service today to confirm that Corn Chex, Cinnamon Chex, Strawberry Chex, and Honey Nut Chex have also been re-formulated to be gluten-free. The General Mills representative said that if any of their cereals are gluten-free it will be clearly marked on the front and side of the box and that some cereals may be rolled out in only some parts of the country at first.

Have they made any statement as to whether their gluten-free cereals will be produced on a sterile/gluten-free line, or continue to be produced with the regular cereal?

All General Mills cereals that say gluten-free on the box are manufactured on dedicated lines. The cereals produced on shared lines do not have a gluten-free label. Not "sterile" in the strictest sense of the word (having to do with bacteria or pathogens), but free from gluten contamination.

this is so great! i was just at Walmart a little while ago and while there were no boxes of Rice Chex to be found, they must have just stocked the shelf with new boxes of gluten free Corn Chex! i think i'll have a bowl of cereal for dinner... ;)

Of three stores I've checked (Walmart, Albertson's, & Brookshires) only one had anything besides Rice Chex. Strawberry Chex, but not labeled gluten-free. No barley malt extract however.

I ate some right out of the box while driving. Basically Rice Chex with about half the pieces coated with pink sugar. Pretty darn good though. A lot sweeter than Rice Chex obviously.

I just got back from Fred Meyer (aka Kroger) and they did not have any of the new boxes yet. They didn't seem to carry the Strawberry Chex at all, the Rice Chex was out of stock, and the Corn Chex was the old formula.

I've been eating the Strawberry Chex without barley malt anyway, but I'll feel a lot more comfortable knowing that it's produced on separate lines! Usually I prefer the Rice Chex, but sometimes Strawberry Chex is on sale and Rice Chex isn't, so it's nice to have a choice. I look forward to seeing these new formulas in the store! Thanks for posting!

I had two bowls of gluten-free Corn Chex for lunch. :lol:

Corn Chex was one of my favorite cereals before going gluten-free, so I'm a happy girl. :D Can't wait to try the cinnamon and the strawberry. Yum!

I was about to get really excited, but then I read the ingredients:

"Non-fat milk" and "Soy".

That actually makes a pretty decent number of celiacs unable to eat it. Shame. A few other ingredients worthy of highlighting for the multi-sensitive.

"fructose" and "sugar", "peanut oil", "Colors", "BHT" (chemical preservative), and the obvious, corn and rice.

Say it isn't so. "Milk" & "sugar" in cereal? "Corn" in Corn Chex? How dare they. :D

Looks like it is Chocolate Chex too. Here is an email someone on another forum I visit got from GM.

Thank you for contacting General Mills regarding gluten in Corn Chex cereal. General Mills is reformulating the following Big G Cereals to gluten free status:

Corn Chex

Honey Nut Chex

Strawberry Chex

Chocolate Chex

Cinnamon Chex

As was the case with Gluten Free Rice Chex, the barley malt ingredient was removed and replaced with another ingredient. Production has begun, so you may start seeing the gluten free formulas on store shelves now. All 5 products should be widely available across the U.S. by June 1, 2009. As with all reformulated products, both products may be on store shelves at the same time so please read labels/packaging carefully, examining the product packaging to ensure that the cereal inside the box is in fact the new, gluten free product. Look for "NOW GLUTEN FREE" or "GLUTEN FREE" on the front/side/back panels.

The cereal aisle is starting to feel not so scary anymore!

I'm in Portland OR and I have found Strawberry Chex. I found gluten free Kix ONCE at Walmart (and bought 9 boxes)! :rolleyes: The Albertson's in Milwaukie regularly stocks Honey Kix!!! The Honey Kix only have an extra 10 calories per serving, so I'll buy them until regular Kix becomes widely available.

Have you found the Strawberry ones that are actually marked gluten-free? I've been buying them for a while around here, but not the ones that are actually labeled gluten-free and made on the dedicated gluten-free equipment.

Nobody's heard anything about whether the "new" all-corn Kix are going to continue to be available, or if they were just a fluke, have they?

So far I've checked Safeway, Albertsons, and Fred Meyer for the new gluten-free-marked corn and other chex, but no luck.

Cruelshoes,

I've been to 4 stores today and haven't found any of the new ones. I am becoming a little too obsessed with cereal, I think. :)

I can't remember if the box stated gluten free, but I don't think so.

This is so great to hear. I was thrilled when the Rice Chex first came out. Now we are even getting variety. Thanks for sharing the news.

Went shopping this weekend - my Mom was in town visiting - first time we've seen each other since I found out I have celiac disease....

Anyway, I picked up some Rice Chex and she said, "what about those" and pointed to the clearly labeled Gluten Free Honey Nut Corn Chex. Needless to say, I bought a box! They are sooo good....

Thank you, General Mills!

(I'm in Northeast Wisconsin, by the way!)

Finally got a box of Honey Nut Chex. Will try it in the morning. We still haven't gotten the gluten-free corn chex, cinnamin chex or chocolate chex.

best regards, lm
