General Mills has added another flavor of gluten-free Chex to its lineup: Apple Cinnamon.  This addition makes six flavors (Honey Nut, Rice, Corn, Chocolate, and Cinnamon) that are gluten free and on supermarket shelves around the country.

Apple Cinnamon Chex Has:

  • No artificial colors or flavors
  • Sprinkled with real apple and cinnamon
  • 8 grams of sugar per serving
  • 9 grams of whole grain (at least 48 grams recommended daily)

When the first batch of gluten-free Chex cereals were released I had more luck finding them at Walmart than at the grocery store, but if you just can't wait to find them locally you can order them at Amazon.com and at GlutenFreely.com online where they are on sale now.  (more…)

Frito Lay Fritos

Will Fritos Soon Be Certified Gluten-Free?!?!

PLANO, Texas, May 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PepsiCo's Frito-Lay North America division today announced a multi-year initiative to validate many of their products as gluten free, with package labeling to follow. Since many of the company's snacks, such as Lay's Classic potato chips and Fritos Original corn chips are made from simple ingredients like corn or potatoes, they are, and always have been, naturally made without gluten ingredients.

Frito-Lay is not removing gluten from products, rather, has developed a gluten free validation process with input from the Food Allergy Research and Resource Program (FARRP) and the Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) for testing ingredients and finished products to ensure they contain less than (more…)

Gluten-free products dominated the new products category at Expo West this year, which saw record attendance in both the number of attendees and exhibiting vendors.  Here is my second installment of my favorite picks for gluten-free candy, cookies, and mixes.

 

Candy

The Fancy Food Show is put on by National Association for the Specialty Food Trade two times per year; a summer show in New York City and a winter show in San Francisco. With over 17,000 attendess and 80,000 products from 1300 vendors, it is a chance for retailers, restaurants and food service professionals to sample some of the best products on the market. For the vendors, it's a way for them to connect with those people, in hopes of future sales. It's also a good way to be "in the know" as new products come out.  Some vendors are already established and some are brand new, hoping to be picked up by small or large grocery stores. Either way, there is always something new.

Last year, there were more new gluten-free products. Whether it's not quite the right venue or there are less new-comers, it was surprising there were not as many. Last year, gluten-free was a top trend. One reason might be in the labeling.

Some manufacturers are hestitant to call their products gluten-free because they worry about giving the right information to the public. One owner of a spice company said he doesn't put gluten in any of his products but he can't (more…)

Welcome to Monday, December 12, 2011.  Only 13 days until Christmas!  For all of you out there (this includes me) who haven’t finished your shopping, it is time to get busy!   Right now I am out running 8-10 miles to help motivate myself to knock out the rest of my shopping later on today.  Not sure yet if that will include in person or online shopping – it depends on how I feel.

With Hannah home sick with the stomach flu, I had plenty of time to catch up on all things online.   I found some great gluten-free tidbits and plan to share one of them now with you guys! Are you ready? Ta-da….

amys broccoli and cheddar bake gluten freThis Examiner has been a fan of the gluten-free products from Amy's Kitchen for more than a decade. Their line of gluten-free convenience foods, prepared meals, pizzas, wraps and desserts can always be found in my freezer.

We like knowing we are eating quality food that is made with organic ingredients that are GMO free and contain zero trans fats.  We also love that they don't just stick to one type of cuisine and include Indian, Italian and Asian dishes.

What a lot of people don't know about this family-oriented company is that (more…)
