Rice Chex is now Gluten Free!

Hooray for General Mills for making another mainstream cereal gluten free.

From their website: Without changing the crunchy, oven-toasted flavor of Rice Chex, General Mills has replaced barley malt with molasses resulting in a Gluten Free Cereal. General Mills has taken the requisite steps to prevent cross contamination and has tested the formula based on the proposed FDA standards. Questions & comments are welcome at 1-800-328-1144.

Here is a link to their website with some gluten free recipes and more information.

This is fabulous news, isn't it. I do hope more cereals made by the larger manufacturer's do this as well.

Love the new gluten free Rice Chex! I don't think I've ever been so excited to buy a box of cereal before in my life.
