I'm pretty sure the answer is no, I know they have oats and corn, but I also think they have malt, which makes them a no no.

It seems as tho they are gluten-free I know they are made from rice. I eat them and tolerate them well. I have read the label and cannot think of anything in them that we can't have, I could be wrong (I haven't had them in a couple of weeks and do not have a box on hand). I will look the next time I go to the grocery sotre.

I did check the last time I was at the store(since I was concerned that someone posted they were eating Fruity Pebbles daily, possibly it was Hillary), and I couldn't find anything on the label that would indicate they were not gluten-free. But someone should contact the manufacturer, it might be an issue of cross-contamination that makes them possibly not gluten-free. I don't buy/eat them so I am not sure. I think they are made by POST, so maybe checking to see if they have any gluten-free cereals? I have not found them on any of my current updated gluten-free food lists.

God bless,

Mariann

Hi!

Post Cereals are a part of Kraft. If you go to Kraftfoods.com and search for gluten-free they explain their policy. They will not hide any gluten. Cocoa and Fruity Pebbles are gluten-free. I love companies like Kraft and ConAgra!

Hi Hillary,

I also found that Kraft.foods always list gluten containing ingredients on their labels. Both Cocoa and Fruity Pebbles are on manyGF lists and even on the handout I was given at Children's Hospital of Phila. I combine them with Nature's Path Organic Crsipy Rice for rice krispie treats. My daughter says they are too sweet with just the Pebbles.

Hi Everyone!!!!! I just found a cereal make by "Shoprite". It is called Scrunchy Puffed Corn Sweetened popped- up Corn Cereal. It is supposed to be simular to Kellogg's Corn Pops (which is now adding gluten, so be careful to read each box)

I Called Shoprite and was told that Scrunchy Puffed Corn cereal IS gluten-free!!! I'm very excited. Hope my son likes them.

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
