We know that lots of different families want to enjoy Cheerios together.
Cheerios strives to work hard to remove stray wheat, rye, and barley grains from their oat supply. HOWEVER, conventional farming practices as well as common grain handling procedures allow chances for gluten containing grains (like wheat, barley, and rye) to co-mingle with their gluten free oats.
While Gluten-Free Cheerios products comply with the gluten-free standards in Canada and the United States (products contain less than 20 ppm of gluten), they have made the decision to remove the gluten-free label from Cheerios products in Canada until the government agencies publish a consistent testing protocol for products containing oats. At this time the product is not changing, just the label on the box.
Original Lucky Charms are deliciously gluten-free.
Although oats and marshmallows are naturally gluten-free, sometimes extra grains of barley, wheat and rye, which can contain gluten, get mixed in during the harvesting process and the transport from the farm.
The magical difference is in their sifting process.
First, they check the oats after sifting to make sure they contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten.
Then, they check it again after the oats are milled into flour. They always ship the flour to their plants in their fleet of dedicated gluten-free trucks and rail cars.
Lastly, after the flour is baked into Original Lucky Charms cereal, they check one last time to ensure Original Lucky Charms are gluten-free.
At Kelloggs, they believe in the power of grains and the positive impact grains can have on health and the planet. They also understand there are people who are trying to reduce gluten – either because of celiac disease or due to a diet choice.
Due to disappointing sales and manufacturing constraints, they are no longer able to make Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Gluten Free cereal. Kellogg’s Rice Krispies are made with malt, which comes from barley and may contain gluten; therefore, they are not labeled gluten free.
They hope you’ll consider trying other Kellogg gluten free foods.
