Yesterday I read on the 'gluten free foods, products, shopping, and medication' section of this forum that Kellogg Yogos and Kellogg Fruit snacks are not longer gluten free. Here's a link to the thread (if the link doesn't work, it's the "Celcelia's Gluten Free Product Alert" thread).

I know my 5 year old was eating Yogos 2-3 times a week as a treat until last week when I decided he was getting to many treats.

There are a lot of items on the list ... they are items that were listed as gluten-free in Cecelia's Marketplace shopping guide, but have now been tested and considered not gluten-free.

Just thought I'd pass the info along to others who might give them to your kids as a treat.

Thanks so much for posting this. I have always given my daughter Yogos thinking they were ok so I decided to check the Kelloggs website. This is posted under FAQs on the Canadian site:

Question:

Gluten: Does Kellogg's* produce a gluten-free product?

Answer:

As a leader in the food industry, we fully understand and are aware of the special dietary needs of many people. While we do market a wide variety of cereals to meet consumers varying taste preferences and nutritional needs, we do not manufacture a gluten-free product. All of our products contain a natural wheat and/or malt which both contain gluten.

Guess that makes it easy, don't buy any Kelloggs products.

That is for Canada. If you live in the US, they are still safe. I just looked at the website.

This is the Kellogg nutrition statement about gluten and wheat ... it does sound like a CYA comment, but at least it's honest!

__________________

Which of your products is gluten- or wheat-free?

At this time, we do not offer products suitable for consumers on a gluten- or wheat-free diet. All of our products are produced in facilities that also manufacture wheat-containing products. We cannot guarantee that any products are 100% gluten- or wheat-free.

Kellogg's
