Gluten Free Frosted Flake Cereal
Envirokidz’s gluten-free corn flakes “taste great”. They can be purchased at Whole Foods and some grocers carrying gluten free foods. They are also available online in 14 ounce box or 1 oz single serving packs from Amazon.com. Produced by Nature’s Path Foods www.naturepath.com, these frosted corn flakes resemble Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes but are free of gluten.
They can be eaten traditional cereal style with milk or milk substitute for those who are dairy allergic or sensitive. Almond or rice milk work well. You can also eat them dry as a tasty gluten-free snack.
They are made from organic corn meal, organic evaporated cane juice and sea salt. Each 2/3 of a cup or 30 gram serving size without milk have 120 calories with 10 grams of fat. The fat content is not saturated and contains no trans fat. Twenty-six grams of carbohydrates and seven grams of sugar constitute the majority of the nutritional value in this cereal that only has two grams of protein. The cereal also has minimal vitamins and no calcium.
The manufacturer does disclose that the cereal may contain traces of peanuts, tree nuts or soy, presumably from cross contamination though it is clear. Certified organic implies that the product is made from ingredients that contain no synthetic pesticides, synthetic herbicides, preservatives or additives and has not been exposed to irradiation. EnviroKidz gluten-free brand cereal bars are also tasty. My kids call them “Cheetah bars” because of the Cheetah depicted on the wrapper.
So, if you are looking for that “sugar cereal” taste of Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes but are on a gluten-free diet then try out EnviroKidz Organic Amazon Frosted Flakes. Expensive especially when purchased in individual single serving pouches but provide that feeling of not losing out by being a gluten-free diet.
