Dedicated Facility Cereal

6 posts in this topic

Can anyone help me find a cereal that is made in a dedicated facility?  I live in a really small town so I will probably have to order from the big store that starts with an A. online.  I don't care for gluten free Rice Krispies.

 

Thanks!

I believe, and could be wrong but you can contact them, that some (not all) of the Nature's Path ones are. They make both gluten and gluten free ones and I see some in the store with a "made in" warning which leads me to believe that the remainder are from a dedicated facility although I haven't contacted them to find out. They also do the Envirokidz cerealz. I have loved every one of their cereals I have tried. Van's makes two gluten free cereals... with oats! I absolutely love it as I never thought I would have a good cold oat cereal again. Again, contact them to see if they are dedicated and idk if you do oats or not but I can for sure vouch for how awesome the cereal is. These are the only ones I have in the house at the moment and can think of because I don't do artificial anything in my foods any more.

 

FWIW, I also can not stand gluten free Rice Krispies. They suck beyond all reason and no amount of sugar or honey or anything can change the fact that they are bad. Would it kill them to add rice malt so they taste like freakin Rice Krispies?

Chex don't work for me because even if there is no gluten, even the rice Chex are CC'd with corn.

Hey Bart,

I have a list of safe cereals from a corn allergy list and Rice Chex are on the list.  Just an FYI.

Hmmm...I ASSUMED it was the corn, but I notice Shadow said she thinks the vitamins come from soy. THAT must have been what got me.

 

Either that or it's because I wasn't fully healed when I tried them. Maybe I'll check into that soy thing and if they ARE soy-free, I'll give them another try.

    • Hi Jennifer, This thread might have some information that would help you.   Your doctors are pretty lame IMHO.  Perhaps you can find a celiac group in your area that has local meetings for support.  They might also suggest a different doctor who knows how to treat celiac patients.  
    • All the above posts are full of good advice. What I'd like to add is, if you have coeliac disease and continue to eat gluten, you run the risk of other autoimmune diseases in the future as well as osteoporosis, malnutrition and even cancer, so even if you had no symptoms at the beginning, and may also not have any symptoms if you eat gluten (not all coeliacs do), the damage is still being done to your gut and the rest of your body, so please be aware of this.
    • You could possibly try calling the places in Texas and Chicago to see if they can refer you somewhere that does accept your insurance. Oh good luck to you!
    • Hi Jennifer and welcome CyclingLady has given you some good advice above. You want certainty and that's entirely understandable. Go back to your doctors and explain that you need to know a little more and hopefully they will engage positively with you. If they don't, then do pursue a second opinion.  I just wanted to address your last paragraph quoted above. The problem with celiac, or in my case non celiac gluten sensitivity, is that it presents or doesn't present in so many different ways. It can do hidden damage which may take many years to become apparent. It can impact in ways which are incredibly difficult to recognise or isolate.  I am 'lucky' in that the way that gluten impacts on me is far worse than any mental or social isolation brought upon by the diet, so motivation is easy for me, even without the certainty of a celiac diagnosis, there really is no alternative, I don't think I'd last long on a gluten diet now. But I can well understand how difficult it may be to stay honest on the diet if you don't have any symptoms to deal with. The diet can be isolating, there does become a distance between you and 'normal' people. Who would want to deal with all that if they didn't have to? If you aren't satisfied with your doctors  responses and choose to go back onto gluten I suggest you find another doctor and go back into the diagnostic process and properly exclude celiac, including a scope. Otherwise you could be taking a big risk with yr long term health. You may find that this process supplies you with an answer as if your diagnosis was correct your response to the reintroduction of gluten may surprise you, or not of course! best of luck!     
    • There is currently not any enzymes you take that will get rid of gluten, they are working on a promising one to reduce symptoms but all others out there right now are a bust and will not help you much if it all with gluten exposure, Celiac is a auto immune disease, your reacting to the proteins of gluten and it is attacking them and your own body.  I do suggest a digestive enzyme if you have food issues in general to help break them down. But this will not fix gluten exposure, reduce damage from gluten, or make gluten eating safe by any means. These current ones on the market are FAD ones target at healthy people and helping them with general digesting of gluten proteins but will not help you if you have celiacs to eliminate gluten reaction symptoms.
