gluten-free Cereal

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey! My question is abut gluten-free cereal. I have been eating gluten-free cornflakes or Gorilla Munch ever since I found out I have Celiac Disease. I haven't found anything else that I like. My FAVORITE cereal before Celiac Disease was shredded wheat. Why is it NOT possible to find a gluten-free cereal made into a shredded wheat type of texture? Or I would even be happy with a cereal made of corn that tasted like Cinnamon LIFE. I don't understand why we can't have a bigger cereal selection.

Also, another question. Has anyone tried the new Coconut Milk Ice Cream made by So Delicious?? Native Sun has the yogurt (which I don't think is gluten free), but I can't find the Ice Cream anywhere. I'm dying to know if anyone has tried it, and how they like it. Thanks!!

It's all about texture in cereal, isn't it.

I'm currently eating Rice Chex and adding some shredded coconut to it (the large shreds - I get it at Whole Foods). Not exactly like shredded wheat, but still a nice texture. You have to eat it quickly because the Rice Chex will get soggy much faster than shredded wheat will, and to help it stay crispy I only use enough milk to wet but not soak.

For a more crunchy, granola like texture, I add Nutty Rice cereal by Perky's, along with the coconut and some raisins, or maybe dried cranberries.

Coconut milk ice cream???? Ooooh, that should be good! Non dairy??? (hope, hope)

I'm actually not sure what Cinnamon Life tastes like but Cinnamon Amaranth Snaps taste alot like Cinnamon Toast Crunch without all the sugar :D

This is slightly off topic, but not really...

... but I noticed that if you put Rice Chex into your ice-cream or other frozen dessert, it tastes just like an ice cream cone, and it's really, really good.

Then if you make a Sundae with a couple of scoops, plus banana slices, chocolate syrup, nuts or coconut or whatever sprinkled on top, and you add the Rice Chex, you get something like an ice cream cone Sundae... and it's really, really good.

I've also made something like the Chex party mix... adding gluten-free pretzels.

I eat a lot of Rice Chex, but I never eat a bowl of cereal!!!

Thanks for the Rice Chex advice. I'll try that this weekend w/ ice cream.

DD hasn't had an ice cream "cone" since she was dxd and I was going to try my hand at a homemade sundae bowl cone this weekend.

I hope you report back how that ice cream bowl thing turns out for your DD.

I saw gluten-free ice cream cones in the health food store one time... I don't remember the brand name, was tempted to buy, but the cost was absolutely outrageous.

I keep dreaming of a way that Rice Chex could somehow be pressed together and rolled into an ice cream cone... but... ??????

I'd like to get a waffle cone making machine and learn to make my own gluten-free ice cream cones, someday. REally, to me, the Rice Chex taste so much like I remember ice cream cones tasting it's unbelieveable... if only they could be mashed into a flat shape, pressed together in some waffle cone maker, and would dry out to a crisp cone... guess I dream pretty BIG, hey????? :lol:

When I first saw the title I didn't realize ya'll were talking only cold cereal, but I'll stick my 2 cents in anyway! I love eating sweetened quinoa or corn meal or even a mix as a hot cereal replacement. A little brown sugar, cinnamon, and if I'm feeling daring, a handful of raisins, and it's just as good as the Quaker Oats stuff. The trick is that you MUST soak the quinoa or at least bring to a boil, swish around, and discard the water and start over. You can get away without soaking quinoa in other dishes, especially savory ones, but this needs it to be mild and you can't skip it. :) bon appetit!

My daughter likes Trix, Fruity and Coca Pebbles, and some chocolate cereal in a bag put out by Safeway. I want to say Cocoa Astros or something like that.

She has tried the coconut yogurt by So Delicous and loves the vanilla and raspberry. For a frozen dessert, she likes Coconut Bliss.

Purely Decadent cookie dough is awesome, especially melting over a bowl of hot apple crisp...

Or with a dollop of peanut butter. But I say that about everything.

I found this yummy cereal! It calls itself a granola, but it's got rice flakes,dried fruit bits, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, almonds, sesame seeds, pecans and its sweetened with raisin juice concentrate, honey and cranberry. It's Gluten free, Wheat free, Trans Fat free, Dairy free, Cholesterol free, Low in saturated Fat, low in Sodium and Casein Free. It's delicious! It's called "Nutty Cranberry Maple Granola" and it's made by "Bakery on Main". I found it in my local health food store. Once I fell in love with it, I discovered I could order it online at "www.bakeryonmain.com" Happy eating.

Susan :)

The same company that makes Gorilla Munch, makes Peanut Butter Panda Puffs (corn puffs) and Whole O's (looks like cheerios) they are all made at gluten free facilities. I can find them at most my local grocery stores in the southern US. They are awesome!

I also love Rice Chex and Corn Chex!

I keep the Purely Decadent ice cream in cookie dough on hand most the time, with Eddy's slow churned chocolate too!

I am super sensitive but have found that I can eat only the unflavored chex, kix, berry kix, our local grocery store's fruity rice and the cookie crisp sprinkles..

cereal is my most favorite part of the day..so I am happy that I am able to eat some of the cereals...

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
