Many people today have to follow a gluten-free diet, so as to manage celiac disease. If you love breakfast cereal, looking for gluten-free products can become difficult as most cereals contain wheat, barley or rye. Check out this list of cereals when searching for options for your gluten-free breakfast.
Chex cereals are a great option for people who have to avoid gluten in their diet. Choose from five different gluten-free cereal flavours. There is the traditional Rice and Corn Chex, as well as Honey Nut, Chocolate and Cinnamon Chex. All of these products are corn or rice flour based, so there is nothing to worry about, if you cannot include wheat in your diet. Look for the gluten-free label when shopping for your next box of Chex.
Nature's Path Organic Cereals
Another great brand to look for when shopping for gluten-free products is Nature's Path Organic. This company focuses on using healthy, organic ingredients and still producing delicious products. They have several excellent cold cereals for gluten-free eaters to choose from. Try Crunchy Maple Sunrise, which combines quinoa puffs, sweet molasses and flakes made from corn flour, amaranth and buckwheat. Crunchy Vanilla Sunrise is another gluten-free cereal by Nature's Path. It also combines a variety of grains as well as the natural sweetness of molasses and a little vanilla flavouring.
Kellogg's Rice Krispies
Another traditional favourite turned gluten-free is Kellogg's Rice Krispies. What are the ingredients in this cereal?

As an added bonus, you can make your cereal into the delicious Kellogg's Rice Krispies treats, using melted marshmallows and butter. Finding gluten-free foods can seem difficult and options are indeed limited. Fortunately, many cereal brands have come out with gluten-free cereal choices, making it easier for people who cannot eat this protein. There are so many excellent grains that do not contain gluten. Quinoa, corn, rice, amaranth, flax seeds and buckwheat are all packed with nutrients and flavour.
