Ok Ss's (Super Sensitives) tee hee :)

I need some cereal. I have always been a big cereal person. Do any of you do ok with Chex cereals? I emailed them and they dont make them on dedicated equipment but have strict guidelines etc. The Pebbles line is on dedicated equipment and I'm not sure about the gluten free rice krispies. Any thoughts on these?

Do you get "natures path" cereals in the US? They are approved by the UK celiac society, and I haven't had any overt problems with them, but have been careful about quantity etc. They have nice rice crispies and "mesa sunrise" which is made with quinoa and aramanth flours. I also like rice and buckwheat flakes from our supermarket which make a nice porridge, if I have time to make it. Another possibility is boiling up some quinoa with rice milk, or whatever milk you prefer.

I can't say much about the risk of reactions to these foods as I am still new to all this. The only cereal reaction I have had was to a bag of basmati rice, which I am positive must have been contaminated as I got sicker and sicker after starting this particular bag, and got better when I stopped using it. A bag of long grain rice and other rice products have been just fine.

I really like the newer Glutino Flake Cereals.

I'm pretty much the biggest cereal fan ever! I'm from the UK but now living in the US.

Chex are meant to be safe for celiacs. I ate them for months, a huge bowl every morning and often more at night, and was fine but more recently I've been getting diarrhea after eating them. I've stopped for a while and I'm back to Envirokids cereals...yummy! Peanut Butter panda puffs and gorilla much are my favourite right now and they go perfectly with Nature's Path Corn Flakes. Nature's Path have lots of other good gluten-free cereals too.

I've heard from a few friends that the gluten-free rice krispies have made them sick but haven't tried them personally.

My sensitive daughter can have a small bowl of Envirokidz a day without a gluten issue, usually. I believe they are the Nature's path cereals, yes? My family hasn't tried any of the others from that company.

I react to the envirokidz, but not too badly. It's a bit hard for me to say how much, any more accurately than that, because I'm allergic to some of the ingredients, so things are just overall crappy for a few days, you know?

I did not do well with Rice Chex, but you know me - gluten can sneeze my way and I react. :lol: Most celiacs I talk to have eaten Chex without issue. However, I have seen a few people now saying that they felt ill after eating honey nut chex. I've found this on a few different sites, only this flavor mentioned, so that might be a flavor to approach cautiously if you choose the chex route.
