Cheerios are now Gluten Free

When my oldest daughter who is now 12 was little, I never really thought about Gluten. At least not like I do now. I have a few friends who can’t eat any gluten and for a little bit the dr’s thought I may have a gluten intolerance myself. When they first said that I thought of all the foods I loved that I couldn’t really have. While for me it turned out that I was ok and can eat gluten, my daughter does seem to show some traits. Luckily Cheerios™ now has an extensive Gluten-Free line, so if she does, she could still enjoy on of her favorite cereals.

One of the things I noticed is that Gluten-Free products can be really really expensive. Knowing that Cheerios™ isn’t raising the prices is really comforting. 1% of the population has Celiac and there as many as 30% of the population that are avoiding gluten. Not really fare to them that they have to pay so much more for cereal because of a disease.

Have you wondered how Cheerios™ can making something Gluten-Free? I’m sure it’s really complex but to make it as simple as possible they changing the ingredient-sorting process and not the ingredients themselves. There is one exception and that is the MultiGrain which they reformulated to include sorghum and millet instead of wheat and barley. It really is interesting (Well to me anyway).

I will have to say that my favorite are Honey Nut Cheerios™ and Apple Cinnamon Cheerios™. There is something about apples and cinnamon that screams yum to me. My daughter’s favorite is the regular original Yellow Box Cheerios™, with a little bit of milk and a banana.

I really think it’s great when a company looks at their current process of making something, see’s people who can’t enjoy it and changes it to make sure everyone is included. To me it seems to be, because they really do care. Even though most people think of cereal as only a breakfast food I know in my house it’s an every meal or snack kind of food. One of my best friends is always joking around saying he will be worried the day there isn’t a whole product line of cereal in our pantry.

So the next time you are at the store (they are just about in all stores now, or will be in September) and are looking for Gluten-Free options, just look for the Cheerios™  Gluten-Free seal on their box and you are good to go.
