I think I did the first time I tried them :( I have another box though and I'm trying to work up the courage to test again to make sure it wasn't something else. I'll be watching this thread to see if anyone else reports having issues with them.

Thanks....I guess its the Lactaid milk........again...Gosh, dairy is so much harder to give up than gluten for me! I got bloating, gas and a headache...I thought Lactaid was suppose to help so I guess it really is casein. BUMMER! AGH.

I'm with you! My 3 year old son is gluten free, limited dairy and I find the dairy so much harder to work around!

Sorry to burst your bubble but Rice Crispies have Malt in them and in Canada they have Barley and Malt so they are not considered Gluten Free, although it is probably a very small amount of it; it is still considered to contain gluten.....BUT they now make gluten free rice crispies information on that is on the thread below :)

Gluten Free Rice Krispies are now available in the US. There are no plans by Kelloggs, at this point, to bring the product to the Canadian market.

I've tried them. My problem is that they just don't taste very good--not like real Rice Krispies. I think that perhaps it's because they use brown rice instead of white rice. Somehow everyone who manufactures gluten free products (with the exception of God bless 'em General Mills with their Chex line) seems to think that we're all health food nuts who want bland tasting "natural" cerials that taste worse than the stuff I feed my horse. I had high hopes for these but unfortunately Kellogs has not come through.

I have tried the gluten free Rice Krispies...I had MAJOR issues after eating .  I'm wondering about cross-contamination with barley/malt, as I am more sensitive to barley than to wheat.......

i just looked this up (plain rice krispies - kelloggs website) because they are now running a commercial ad that says the only thing rice krispies contains is rice.  i thought it used to contain barley malt.  the ingredients on the website currently lists 'malt flavor' - - - - ?  WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? 

 

lolz - they use 'carmine' to color red cherries in canned fruit cocktail - i looked it up because i wanted to be sure it was ok.  and, YAY!  carmine is gluten free!  it is also made of CRUSHED UP BUG BODIES.....  so, it's safe to eat but now i don't want to....  ;)

I second this.  If I wanted them made of brown rice, I'd have gotten the nasty Erewhon ones.  They don't taste like the originals, they don't crunch like the originals.  You can use them for rice krispie treats, but they're not much good in a bowl with milk.  Yuk.

The G F Rice Krispies are  NOT CROSS CONTAMINATED.

I eat them sometimes and I would feel it, believe me. 

 

THEIR WEBSITE: "We produce it in a separate facility and test each batch to make sure that it’s gluten-free".

I eat gluten-free Rice Krispies as part of my breakfast food rotation, and have never had a problem. There were so many years that I did not eat Rice Krispies due to the barley, that I honestly don't remember the original ones well enough to make a comparison. But I like the gluten-free ones. I also eat Rice Chex and Corn Chex (for the latter, I stock up whenever I am south of the border).

    • Hello,  I am in a job that I travel every 3rd week...It gets challenging becuase many times I am doing audits of warehouses and they dont even have a cafeteria.  I usually bring gluten-free protein bars as a back up if I have to miss a meal and then eat when I get back to the hotel.  Just a suggestion because they certainly fill me up....Have a safe trip...Kelly  
    • Hello all, I'm a new member here but have lurked for a while. I'm looking for some advice regarding my medical history, possible symptoms of celiac and next steps. General info: female, low level smoker, drink alcohol, aged 32. I started having bad gastro issues when I was around 17. Since then I've consistently suffered from chronic diarrhoea, frequent discomfort in the tummy area, feelings of dehydration despite drinking at least eight glasses a day and frequent fatigue for no real reason.  In 2008/9 I visited the doctor as my diarrhoea was having an effect on my studies at the time. The doctor tested me for allergies; eggs, fish, gluten and lactose and did a "standard" blood test. Everything came back fine except my liver results, which were elevated to double (I did not the see the results for myself so can't say which enzymes etc). I was told to drink less and take Imodium. The doctor implied that perhaps I was stressed and / or anxious and, still being young plus a student who regularly went out drinking, I accepted this advice and carried on with my life.  I would here add that I am not an unusually stressed person - in fact, learning to deal with my unpredictable bowels has forced me to be quite a laid-back person!  Fast forward to 2016. I had been living with my partner for two years by this point who had noticed my bowel habits and informed me that this was definitely not normal. He encouraged me to try out a gluten free diet since I was apprehensive about visiting a doctor only to be fobbed off with Imodium again. I did the diet as strictly as a newbie can for around two months before we set off travelling. During the diet I noticed that after a couple of weeks of extreme tiredness I felt quite a lot better - I kept a food journal at the time which showed that I almost immediately had diarrhoea once after eating an ice-cream, i felt bloated and unwell after an attempt to make oat muffins (maybe i didn't cook them very well though!) and I felt bloated and had diarrhoea after eating some fish fried in flour (We made a mistake in ordering them but I didn't want to complain). My partner also reported that my mood swings (which I admit can be a little unpredictable) were much better.  Once we started travelling I gave up and ate what I was given as we were staying with friends etc much of the time. Toward the end of our trip I started to feel extremely tired, to the point of having to stay in for "rest" days, and my guts were very unhappy. I chalked it up to irregular eating patterns, too many beers and late nights in general. During the trip I also had an extreme hangover after drinking wheat beer. And, while of course I accept that any overindulgence can make you ill, I really felt that that level of hangover was quite out of the ordinary. Finally, I developed a strange lump under my armpit during this period. Now back at home, I decided to go to the doc and check out the odd lump under my armpit. The doctor was pretty confident that it was nothing to worry about cancer-wise but she ordered a battery of blood tests just to be sure. The lump is fine (good news) but the results showed elevated GGT, high-ish ALT and normal AST liver enzymes plus signs of dehydration in red bloods / higher (but not concerning) levels of white bloods. I'm scheduled to go back for another blood test to double-check liver function and discuss results - if it is again high she will send me for a ultrasound.  Does this history chime with anyone here? I know that the correct course in basic health terms is to stop drinking for some time (easily done) and stop smoking forever (easy to say...) but I cannot help but think that something else is going on here. I will discuss this with my doctor and make clear that my bowel issues have not been resolved and that the initial IBS diagnosis wasn't based on any thorough testing so to speak. In the meantime - does anyone have any advice for me in times of avenues to research or experience of similar symptoms? Gluten remains in my diet but in all other respects it could be regarded as very healthy, I think anyway... (pescatarian, plenty of fruit and veg, little to no sugar on a daily basis, not much dairy to speak of...) Thanks in advance and sorry for bending everyone's' ear about this... I guess it's just taken a long time for me to admit I might be sick and I need some help. Jen
    • Wish I could give you a hug. Unfortunately I know how that feels with Neurologists, Internists, Endocrinologists, Rheumatologists, GIs..... I got so tired of crying my drive home after refusing yet another script for Prozac.  I do hope your GI can give you some answers even if it is just to rule out other possible issues. Keep on the gluten and we are here for you.
    • It is too bad that so often a full panel isn't done. Glad your appointment got moved up and hopefully you will get a clearer answer from the GI. Do keep eating gluten until the celiac testing is done.  Once the testing is done do give the diet a good strict try. Hang in there.
    • That makes sense...I cried with relief when I got my diagnosis just because there was finally an answer.   Please know that you are not weak or crazy.  Keep pushing for testing.  It could still be celiac, it could be Crohns.  Push your Dr's to figure this out.  Best wishes.
