Gluten Free Post Cereal

Apparently, Post Cereals intends to enter the gluten free breakfast cereal market, following the wonderful example set by General Mills and their gluten free Chex cereals. I chose the word “apparently” because the gluten free sites “Gluten Free Optimist” and “Gluten Freeville” report this as a fact and even link the reader to a press release from Post Cereals indicating that Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles will soon are (or will soon be) certified gluten free. The press release does not state what organization is doing the certifying and when the certification process will be complete and the products will actually be available. When I visited the Post Cereal website, I saw pictures of several cereal boxes clearly marked gluten free and roughly the same number of boxes without the marking I had hoped to see.

My suggestion: The press release contained an e-mail address Jennifer.Mennes@postfoods.com. Do what I intend to do immediately after I finish this post —  E-mail Ms. Mennes and encourage her to encourage her company to provide America’s gluten free community with the service it needs, deserves, and is quite willing to pay for. Then, don’t hold your breath waiting for action. Action will come.

    My celiac son has eaten them for years without problem anyway.If they are certified GF the price will go way up. I would rather they take food coloring out of their products.That is the only reason my son doesn’t eat the Fruity Pebbles.We stick to the Cocoa Pebbles. Thanks for the info!

    I was delighted to try both gluten free pebbles. I had one bowl of fruity pebbles, with GF almond milk, doubled over. So waited until today, had cocoa pebbles with gf almond milk, PAIN…so will throw these out. I have had no problem with general mills Chex cereals or organic corn flakes……was sad to have this issue, now will have to spend days getting this out of my system….

    Thanks for the share –I’ll have to try these for my kids–they aren’t loving the gluten-free world that I have them living in!
