I believe I have read that they're sweetened with barley malt. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, please. If I'm right, then they contain gluten.

Natures Path Corn Flakes which are lightly sweetened with fruit juice are good too. My guys are gluten-free, not me, and I think they taste normal and use them in all my recipes that call for cornflakes. :) Kendra

At a celiac's meeting the experts (A doctor, nurse and dietician) said that Kelloggs Cornflakes and Rice Krispies are now considered gluten free. I haven't been able to find the confirmation I need before going ahead and eating them.

Does anyone know?

There is Barley Malt in them....

If you have a Wegmans near you, they have Strawberry Corn Flakes under their own label, you find it in the Organic Section. It is organic. I have had it and it is very good. It is labeled gluten free too.

Except if you consider barley malt flavoring a gluten ingredient.

I've tried every "health food" gluten free corn flakes I could get my hands on. They all suck if you ask me. Hard, not light and crispy like they are supposed to be. Sorry, I once worked for Frito Lay Research and conducted blind taste panel product testings. I tend to be very critical. You may find them acceptable. Please post your impressions.

best regards, lm

With the government deciding how much poison we could have I am not surprised about this at all. They are not gluten free. Period. If an item contains wheat starch or barley malt it is not gluten-free. It just tests below the level that has been determined to be okay to poison us with. As expected when the determination was made by the FDA we now can't even trust that a phone call to a rep or gluten free label means gluten free, we have to decide if it is gluten free by nature or by testing. I wonder why thats okay with gluten and not with peanuts. Oh wait a minute I know why, peanuts kill those reactive to them immediately, when they give us gluten it kills us slowly and makes for lots of money for the doctors while we try to figure out what else could be wrong with us cause we are eating labeled 'gluten free' food and still sick.

First.. don't ever assume a doctors 'recommended' list is correct. I've helped to correct some doctor's lists on gluten-free. The latest was from the children's feeding clinic program (for my child with celiac (but not diagnosed by a doctor - won't get into why)) and they had on their list McCann's Irish Oats. If you do research, you will find that SOME batches of their oats test with no trace of gluten.. but others have tested with over 300 ppm gluten (which under the new laws would NOT be gluten-free!). They supposedly changed mills and work really hard to be gluten-free but they are Gluten lite and you can't reliably eat them. I am VERY sensitive to gluten and trying the oats gave me a severe reaction - but it WAS on the gluten-free list by a specialty feeding program... just goes to show you that you must research every food and check. The only oats I've found to be free of gluten are the ones produced in Wyoming that I order via the internet (can't remember the company now..) We usually order a very large case each time and use them for oatmeal cookies and such. Being able to eat gluten-free oatmeal is GREAT for deserts.

I've recently stopped eating Kellogg's as I couldnt pinpoint what was getting gluten into my system. It appears Ive found the answer. The warning 'contains Barley' should have been enough I guess. There possibly listed as having no gluten due there being less than 10mg of gluten in them but thats too much for me. Fruit and yogurt is now the new morning cereal

    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
    • Thanks for that.  Will get her tested for deficiencies.  I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks  
    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come!
