Gluten-Free Products – Gluten-Free Corn Chex coming soon to a store near you!

Corn Chex
I know you all were excited when Rice Chex was reformulated to be gluten-free – but the good news on mainstream gluten-free products just keeps on coming.  Gluten-Free Corn Chex and Cinnamon Chex are coming soon.  General Mills is still rolling out the gluten-free version. As of March 15th, their Web site still lists barley malt as an ingredient, so be sure to check for the updated box before making a purchase.  [The gluten-free formulation replaces barley malt with brown sugar syrup.]  And over on Gluten-Free Philly, the news continues – Gluten-Free Honey Nut Chex are available already in New Jersey.   Strawberry Chex are already listed at gluten-free on the General Mills Web site.  Check out Gluten-Free Post for more on the Gluten-Free Corn Chex.

Thanks to Cream Hill Estates’ Beth Armour for the tip – she’s looking forward to making Gluten-Free Nuts and Bolts mix soon. (I have a soft spot in my heart for Cream Hill Estates because I made my gluten-free Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies using Cream Hill Estates Gluten-Free Oats)

Have you made any other great gluten-free product finds lately?

Whole Foods finally started carrying GF Oats from Bob’s Red Mill. Found them at the Columbus Circle location a couple of weeks ago.

Can’t wait! I am so stinkin’ excited! We love the Strawberry! I had no idea about the Cinnamon or Honey Nut. I am keeping my eyes peeled for them. The store I was at today only had GF Rice Chex. The others still had barley malt in them. I know it will come, but I am impatient now! 😉

Cinnamon Chex are not Gluten Free. General Mills Site is still showing that Cinnamon Chex contains Barley malt.

Mondschein- I got some of the gf oats at the Union Square Whole Foods this weekend – so convenient!

Kim-patience is not one of my virtues, so I’m anxious too!

Nancy – you are right, I updated the post, they are being reformulated too but they haven’t changed the ingredients yet on their site.

It was recently suggested to us to try our son on a gluten-free diet in order to see if it would diminish some of his ASD symptoms and I’ve been in a bit of a panic over where to start and what in the wold I would give my cereal-loving little guy that wouldn’t cost us a small fortune. The Chex going GF is GREAT news!!!

I applaud GM for producing gluten-free Corn Chex cereal…but what about those of us who preferred the original version?

I loved Corn Chex, but I don’t see why my cereal has changed to accomodate 1-133 people. Offer both products and let the consumer decide.

[…] found a few gluten-free options along the way but I knew the tide was changing when General Mills reformulated almost the entire Chex line to be gluten-free.  Now, in the latest issue of Real Simple magazine, they did a review […]
