Is Arrowhead Mills Gluten Free Maple Buckwheat Cereal Ok?

I know this topic may belong under the food section of the forum, but I wanted to ask the super sensitive crowd if any of you have had any luck with this cereal. I seem to do ok with some of the Erewhon cereals, but I am looking for some variety. Haven't done well with Rice Chex or Enjoy Life Cereals. I am currently avoiding corn also. Maple Buckwheat just sounds so good when you have been stuck on rice cereals. Any other suggestions? I know we should avoid processed foods, but cereal is a real weakness of mine.

You should just call them. They were very nice when I called to ask them about their gluten free buckwheat flour because it didn't say on the package if it was made in a facility that produces wheat. The woman was very helpful and said that it is made in the same facility but that they are very careful and clean everything really well. "We are very, VERY serious when we say that something is gluten free."

I think the best one I could find was Pocono's cream of buckwheat, but I don't eat that anymore.

How come you stopped eating it? Did it give you problems?

I did email them. Probably won't hear back from them til after the 4th. I am a little concerned abuot their products due to what I have seen at another site. Some people test products on their own and some of the Arrowhead Mills products, including the buckwheat flour did not do so well at testing for 10ppm. No one at that site has tested the cereal I am curious about.

I just bought this cereal an hour ago to try, as I've not seen it before. Oh my gosh...I hope that it's okay. I already got glutened today with a new product. Let me know how you all handle it!!!!!!!!!

Yes, but I am extremely sensitive and many things that other super sensitives can eat, I can't. You might be able to tolerate it still.

I'll let you know how it goes if I try it. I'm not knocking Arrowhead mills in particular. Many processed gluten free foods have enough gluten to cause some of us problems. To be honest, for me eating a little of the cereal not very often probably will not effect me too badly. I think a good stategy for some is to eat fresh, non-processed food most of the time and to make sure that if we stray towards processed food, limit the amount you take in. We all just have to figure out where our threshold is and accept the fact that our thresholds do change over time. It can be very frustrating since it is like trying to hit a moving target. What used to work for me 5 years ago definitely doesn't work now.

I did hear back from arrowhead mills. They test to 10ppm. I had already tried the cereal anyway and seemed to do ok. I do limit the amount I eat since it is processed food.

I tried it too. I don't think that I did well with it. I tried it twice, and both times I think that I had mild effects. I will not eat it again. However, I always second guess myself and think that maybe it was something else.

I sometimes wonder about the rice milk. I have switched from Rice Dream to Good Karma. What do you use with your cereal?

It's easy to make your own rice milk.

What's the recipe? or maybe a link to a recipe.

It's really super easy, and cheap as can be (first time we get to hear that about gluten-free food, huh? ;) ).

1 cup brown rice and 8 cups water - put in a pot. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 3 hours. It should turn out like a kind of slurry.

Get a blender. fill it half with clean water from the tap, the other half with some of the rice slurry.

Blend like crazy.

Strain it through a cheesecloth, or pour twice through a wire mesh. store in a clean jar in the fridge.

Do the same with the remaining slurry until there's none left.

And that's the rice milk.

It is usually about twice as thick as normal rice milk, so many people thin it out before using. It will last about 5-7 days, I'm told. And some people will add oil and/or sweeteners just before blending, to help with texture and taste.

    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
    • Ok guys, I messed up. I ate a bag of marshmallows the same day... low and behold, with wheat starch. I did not expect that. Sneaky sneaky marshmallows with with wheat starch. fml
    • The L-Glutamine may have gluten in it.  Try drinking bone broth daily instead.
