Anyone tried the new gluten-free Cheerios?

I don't have celiac disease, however I do have gluten intolerance, and this is the only new thing that I've changed in my diet. I've eaten them for about four days in a row and not only am I noticing some digestion issues, but my face is breaking out pretty badly, which is extremely rare for me. Has anyone else experienced trouble after consuming these? Maybe they're not so gluten-free after all. :(

New Gluten Free Cheerios on Aug 07, 2016 @ 10:50 am

Unfortunately, my response won't be really beneficial to you as I can't provide my own experience since I don't have any gluten intolerance or tried the new cheerios. However, I would recommend you call the company and let them know what happened to you. It's possible this could be happening to other people.. and who knows, perhaps they will reevaluate the ingredients in their cereal maybe refund you because their cereal gave you a bad reaction and there really isn't much of a point in continuing to consume this cereal if they are causing you digestive issues and making you break out. I know I couldn't provide my own experience but I really hope I was able to help you in some way! Please let me know what happens with you and all the best :)

Wow, I just realised I had a run-on sentence and it sounds terrible! I apologise for my lack of eloquence in the paragraph above :/ .

Haha, no worries about the run-on sentence! Yeah, I stopped eating them and in one day my skin pretty much returned to normal, and in two days my stomach started feeling better. I'll give it a week to let things settle down, try a bowl and see if I have the same reaction, and if I do, I think I'm going to contact them. I started seeing things on Facebook that have me concerned that they're not being too strict with their practices -- a lot of people on there are commenting about similar issues.

that's so weird - obviously there is something in the ingredients that does not agree with you!

I'm more worried about cross-contamination at this point. The Canadian Celiac Association just released something yesterday confirming that these Cheerios are in fact not safe for either Celiacs or gluten intolerant individuals. Their tests found that the amount of gluten contained in the product was still too high, and that the way that General Mills cleans their oats leaves room for far too much cross contamination. Some boxes end up with more gluten than others.

I didn't think it was possible for products to put a stamp of certification on their box if their products are not 100% free from gluten, but I guess General Mills found a loophole. I am modt definitely contacting them now.
