I have been a celiac for 11 years now, I live in Mexico, so I have many corn products to enjoy. I have been eating corn flakes (Kelog's) from time to time and I use it to coat meat and chicken and I seem to tollerate it well.

There has been a recent trend by breakfast cereal manufacturers to increase the amount of malt extract or barley in corn cereals.

Those that are still gluten-free now state that on the packet. If a breakfast cereal doesn't claim to be gluten-free then you have to assume now that it is not.

I now cook myself a bowl of rice with sultanas and nuts for breakfast each day. It takes a little more planning - it is cooking while I am getting myself organised for the day - but it also costs a lot less. If you use brown rice then it is a lot more healthy, and you don't need to add salt and sugar unless you want it.

I got diagnosed almost 8 years ago and have been eating GF ever since. In the beginning it was so hard because there wasn't a lot of education about such a common allergy. Cereals have always been one of the toughest things because I used to LOVE them soooo much. GF cereals are not that tasty and I get pretty tired of corn and rice all the ****ing time. However I am wondering since I can't seem to find any information on it if MALT FLAVORING has gluten in it. This is what is used in Kellog's Corn Flakes now; replacing MALT EXTRACT which I know had gluten. Anyone know?

Re Breakfast cereals: from Peter on 2006-10-12

Most brands of cornflakes and other cereals with malt flavouring have added malted barley to their products. This contains MORE gluten than they used to.

Can anyone recommend a gluten free cereal which does not contain traces of nuts? Desperate to find something that my 4 year old can eat for breakfast.

Re Breakfast cereals: from Peter on 2006-11-27

It is very difficult to find manufactured cereals that are not at risk from cross contamination in the production or packaging equipment.

I cook myself rice and sultanas for breakfast. or rice and dates.

Raw unprocessed meat is gluten-free. But most sausages are not. Beefburgers may not be gluten-free and in some countries the only minced beef on sale has added cereal so is not gluten-free.
Breaded ham and any stuffed meat should also be avoided, as with coated chicken joints etc.

The book, gluten-free cookery by Peter Thomson can be ordered from any bookshop, or amazon, but you can also try all the recipes on-line -see the link to gluten-free cookery at the top of this page.

No one has really answered the question: Is Tostitos Corn Chips and Pace Salsa gluten free.



I just got diagnosed with CD in November. I was told before that I had Diverticulitis for the past 20 years. I've had a pain in my left side for 20 years that I just assumed was caused by Diverticulitis. Now I've tried to stay away from Gluten foods, so I'm looking to you people for help.
