Chex Cereals - Anyone Having Problems With The Flavored Ones

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I love that Chex has come out with gluten free cereals - so far the rice and corn have been great. I also tried the cinnamon and choc/vanilla flavors - I can't say that I got "glutened" but I didn't feel good after eating them - anyone else have that reaction?

Thanks,

Janet

I get Chex off and on. I tried the Honey Nut one the other week and it was good.

The Rice Chex -- Majority of the time I felt a little sick/icky feeling afterwards but never full blown sick.

The Honey Nut one if I ate too much of it I did feel sick but if I ate a small amount I felt just fine.

I eat either the corn or the rice chex everyday. Haven't had a problem. They say the honey nut is gluten free too, but I don't like it, too sugary for me.

I'm also recently gone gluten free, so I'm know I'm not a 100% Gluten-Free. But I love chex, I was so happy when I saw it saw it was Gluten Free. I grew up on Crispix but it has malt flavoring, so chex is the next best thing. :D:ph34r:

I have not had any problems with them and I got through at least 3-5 boxes a week of the various flavors. It is a great breakfast at work and a throughout the day snack. Make sure you are getting the new boxes. I have noticed the old versions mixed in stock at the stores yet. So if your box does not say gluten free it is still made with barley malt.

I have not had any issues with the Rice Chex. However, I noticed the flavored Chex have canola oil in them. While technically gluten free, I have come to find that many other celiacs have problems with canola oil and have a similar to gluten reaction. Perhaps you have a sensitivity to canola as well?

the flavored ones have soy, peanut, and milk (Cinnamon has all three) so maybe its a reaction from that

I tried the Honey Nut one. To much corn for me. Today was the first day since then that I was able to go "all by myself, like a big girl" <_<

Love the Rice Chex, much easier to digest. I'm taking emzymes though and hope to work my way up to a whole bowl of something corney :D

I love the Rice Chex and have been eating them since they became labelled gluten free. I just finished a box of the Strawberry Chex and they made me extremely sick, I thought it had to be something else so I tried eating them several times (I'm thinking it is the dyes in the cereal). I just bought the Chocolate and Cinnamon flavors to try (I have my eye on a few of the recipes on their website). And will probably pick up a boxes of the Corn and Honey Nut to try.

I would look at other possible allergens in them, my grandmother remembered that as a kid I had problems with red dyes and other colorings, so I've decided to play it safe and not buy the Strawberry Chex again because it is better to be safe than sorry.

My stomach is being a little odd to the flavored ones so far. Strawberry ones don't seem to cause any massive bloating but the Honey Nut does off and on (today it got real mad in visible bloating/distending before hitting gym so it wasn't the most enjoyable experience). Trying to narrow down what causes it is another challenge of its own...

I just found out this weekend about the rest of the flavors going gluten free and I practically jumped up and down in the store. I hope they treat us fine at our house. It was HUGE news for us! So far we've only tried the corn and honey nut. Did all the flavors go gluten free? How smart of them!

I seem to be quite sensitive and am happy to say I have had no reaction so far - I've been eating it for breakfast every day for a week - Honeynut, Strawberry and/or Chocolate. Didn't know there was a cinnamon. I can usually tell within an hour or so if I'm going to have a problem.

I had been eating chocolate chex everyday for breakfast and began to get a terrible rash and stomach problems so I double checked the ingredients to find barley malt extract =( I don't think chocolates gluten free anymore

sounds like the old formula, does the box you have say gluten free in big letters on the middle left of the front of the box? the old formula is still out there and even pops back in a store you have seen the gluten free ones

I am questioning whether I should eat the gluten-free Chex or not. I don't feel terrible after eating them, but don't exactly feel great. My lips get really dry and seem to puff up. Maybe it is the milk in the cereal. I personally use rice milk any time I eat cereal.

Does anyone have problems with lips swelling all the time? I have been off gluten for two years and still can't figure out what is going on.

I too have the same problem and feel weird and get that thirsty feeling and the fluttery feeling. all of the stuff that has gone along with being glutened. However, I have read that sometimes it could actually be a reaction to the grains. Try and eat other grains and see if it happens also. This is relatively new for me but I have to mainly stick to whole foods, meat, veggies and brown rice (small amount)> My diet is pretty boring and I am hoping it will improve over time.
