Post Fruity Pebbles And Cocoa Pebbles - Gf?
0

14 posts in this topic

Hi everyone... I am relatively new member, with an 8 year old daughter who has recently been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. She has not been well, despite the gluten-free diet, and it certainly very unhappy about her food choices. I read a reference to Post cereals Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles being gluten-free, and went ahead and bought them for my daughter.

But now I am unsure... has anyone CONFIRMED that Post Fruity Pebbles and Coca pebbles are in fact gluten-free?

Thanks for your help...

Meg's mum

Hi Meg's Mum, :D

It is my understanding that these products are gluten-free. My daughter and I eat them all the time without any problems.

I hope your daughter adjusts to the diet and begins to feel better soon. My daughter was 8 when she was dx too, she had a tough time at first but we were able to find replacements for some of her favorite foods.

Malt-o-Meal versions are also gluten-free if your budget is tight. Some of the store brands are but you have to read carefully. My kids went crazy for a while until we found some gluten-free cereals. I still miss my frosted mini wheats.

Hello

When I checked the labels of these cereals they do contain "malt flavoring"

Also the Malt o Meal brand too.

Which it may differ from person to person about the malt flavoring, but I know that when I have tried these certain cereals they have made me sick :blink:

Are you outside of the United States? Here in the US those cereals are fine. Malt-O-Meal even has a statement on their website. Post is a Kraft company, Kraft has a policy of listing allergens clearly on the labeling. I just bought a box of fruity pebbles today and it has absolutly no "malt" anywhere on the box. Maybe you are thinking of rice krispies, which DO have malt flavoring and are NOT safe. Just a thought.

Here is the info from the Malt-O-Meal Site :

Q: Which cereals are gluten-free?

A: Currently, we produce four gluten-free cereals:

HI angel_jd1

Yes I am in the USA. But for some reason these cereals really get to me.

I know its not from the milk because I do just fine on the Malt O Meal puffed rice.

But they sure do taste alot better then the puffed rice thats for sure :angry:

Q: Are these gluten-free cereals subject to cross contamination? That's another consideration.

When I had called about the post pebbles, I was told they were even made on dedicated lines. I was shocked, but very happy. I'm sure this could of changed, but I don't have any trouble with them, and know alot of other people who do not either.

I'm sorry, but you are just flat-out wrong about those cereals containing malt flavoring in the U.S. I have in my hands a box each of Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles bought just a couple of weeks ago. Neither has malt flavoring listed anywhere on the box. I've had celiac disease for more than three years and both these cereals have always been gluten-free during that time.

Hi

Correction on the Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles and the Malt O Meal brands of these.

It is actually differ cereals that they suggest as gluten free, but which they all contain malt flavoring. Here is a link to them:

http://www.kelloggs.co.uk/products/results.asp

But have found out why the malt o meal cereal brands, Fruity Dyno-Bites and Cocoa Dyno-Bites make me sick is one contains caramel coloring and the other contains yellow 5.

My doc has informed me that I prob should wait to heal up before I try certain things.

Im sorry to put your undies in a bunch about it Richard. :blink:

Note that the page you sent (which didn't come up for me) is a U.K. page, so it would not apply to the U.S.

If I sounded a little irritated it's only because I think fourms like this need to provide accurate information. Saying something is gluten-free when it isn't can make people sick, and saying something isn't when it is only makes our lives that much harder. I've certainly made my share of mistakes over the years.

Its no prob Richard.

Im just curious as to how UK claims these cereals are ok?

I would think people there are really getting sick from those Cereals?

But I got that link right at Kelloggs site. Thats what came up when I did a search for Gluten free.

I am recently dign with this so I am still trying to sort things out.

I have had this undign for over 6 years, at this point everything still makes me sick, gluten free or not. In this time it has really done its damage. But really good to know that I wasnt losing my mind and its actually a disease. ;)

Have a Great day :)

The UK has an official gluten level of 200 ppm. If your product is below that, it's considered gluten-free there. That level still makes some people obviously ill, but they are considered the exceptions (and in fact they probably are the exception. My guess, although I haven't tried it out, is that I could eat more than that with no obvious reactions). The U.S. actually has no official level.

The big question is what level causes hidden damage even if there is no obvious reaction. The answer to that is unknown and almost certainly varies according to the individual. I was VERY ill and despite my lack of obvious reactions, elect to stay as gluten-free as possible without driving myself insane over it.

    •  That's a great question to ask. Thanks for arming me with good ones. I'm doing my research to be able to stand my ground.    Ironically, my endo. Was the most helpful doctor I'd seen and my GP has generally not seemed to have a clue. I have PCOS and Hashimoto's thyroiditis, when I moved to the area and saw him, he was resistant to refer me to an endocrinologist (before I moved to the area, I'd already been seeing an endo. For three years for follow ups since I'd been diagnosed.) My endo. Was able to treat the thyroid antibodies well, they went down without synthroid or surgery (which previous doctor's had suggested). However, I think she dropped the ball on the Celiac blood panel (which I think endos should Definitely be more aware of). And my GP seemed much more aware on this issue. I think the takeaway is always do your research, advocate for yourself, and let second opinions fill in the gaps in knowledge some on your care team may have. (But also, ditch them if they don't know what they're talking about) Also, I live in an area with a doctor shortage...    Thanks for the welcome to the community!
    • Silk Cashew milk is pretty creamy and close to dairy milk, I love Macadamia milk, almond milk is a tad thin in most brands but a good sub and normally enriched with calcium, vitamin D and E. Coconut milk is a bit acquired and can range greatly in consistency, rice milk is normally very thin like 2% school carton milk and bland.  Elmhurst Harvest has started making SUPER rich and creamy milks with walnuts, almond, and macadamia nuts, with talk of bringing back the pistachio milk. I personally love the almond and cashew blends from blue diamond or silk.  If you need a nut free version Good Karma makes a decent flax milk. There are a few other brands out there that make some good ones here locally I love the HEB Organics almond milk best almond milk I have ever tasted rich, fulfilling, and just perfect.   NOTE, avoid the shelf stable versions from almond dream, cashew dream, blue diamond, silk, HEB they are normally much thinner and bland.  Cheese, On block cheeses Dayia makes a good Havarti, smoked Gouda, and cheddar. the shreds from there are pretty bad in taste. Follow your Heart makes a great provolone and decent on everything else. Lisanatti makes godly good shreds for jalapeno jack, cheddar, and mozzarella, they melt better then real cheese as they lack the greasy oil mess.  Their blocks on the other hand are way to soft.   Julian Bakery makes a passable mozzarella but only if your melting it over something or in something the flavor and texture is off but it is the only cheese I found you can order on amazon lol.   Kite Hill makes some really good soft cheeses, I tried a few others like hedei ho and found they are too salty or the flavor way to off to even call cheese. Ice cream there is Nada Moo, and So delicious for some of the top dairy free ones. I personally can only have one called wink which is a unsweetened one. Yogurt the So delicious and kite hill take the top in my opinion but they are the only ones that make a good unsweetened so I can not comment on others. I make my own parmesan and cheese sauces from scratch myself from various ingredients. Even make my own cheddar biscuits and cheesy garlic breads. Hell just made a batch of cheesy cheddar and chive biscuits this morning, OHH the buttery goodness of Nutiva Butter flavored coconut oil I love cooking with, sauteing, and using in savory foods. last week I found it was great with carb free noodles and herb seasoning. I am thinking of using it in my cauliflower Alfredo sauce next time also.
    • From what I've read 2 slices a day should be enough for the challenge. I think they'll have more gluten than the milky way's. Now I want a milky way Have one for me tomorrow dalek100!  
    •   Did you ever figure out what corn gluten is in?  I can not find any information
