UK Gluten-Free Cereal
Finding Gluten-Free Cereal.
Whether you have been following a gluten-free diet for a while or you are just starting to wean yourself off gluten because of an allergy, intolerance or health choice. It can be challenging to find your favourite foods that do not contain any gluten.
Breakfast cereal in particular can be a tough one because most cereals include wheat, barley and other ingredients containing gluten. Cereal is an absolute go-to. Whether it’s for an easy breakfast or a quick snack (we even have friends who nosh a bowl of cereal at dinner time) but unfortunately most top-selling, popular cereals do contain gluten.
However, luckily for us cereal lovers, there are plenty of cereals out there that do not contain gluten and instead contain other gluten-free friendly ingredients such as corn, buckwheat or gluten-free oats. Yay! We will guide you through these options today.
Gluten-Free Cereal alternatives
Although many of the UK’s most popular cereals such as Cornflakes, Cheerios and Weetabix contain gluten. Many brands including Asda and Tesco’s own Free-From collections have created gluten-free dupes for almost all of our favourites.
Note: Please always double check the packaging regularly because product ingredients can change without warning.

The Top 10 Gluten-Free Cereals you can find in UK supermarkets:
1. Nestle Gofree Gluten Free Rice Pops
Unfortunately Kellogg’s Rice Krispies are not gluten-free due to their malt syrup content. Nevertheless, we have found a tasty and gluten-free alternative. Nestle’s Gofree Rice Pops are very similar and full of flavour. These are also suitable for vegan diets.
We have tested these out and you do in-fact get the same ‘whiz’ ‘crack’ and ‘boom’ you’d expect from their more commonly-known counterparts.
2. Quaker Gluten-Free Original Porridge Oats
For the porridge lovers out there, kick start your morning with Quaker Gluten-Free Rolled Oats, add your choice of sweet or savoury topping options. My favourite is lots of fruits and some Agave syrup.
You could also use these oats to make overnight oats. We have a recipe here to try out!
3. Reeses’s Puffs Sweet & Crunchy Corn Puffs
Sweet and crunchy corn puffs coated with cocoa and peanut butter. Made with the famous Reese’s peanut butter.
Definitely one for the peanut butter and chocolate lovers – like me!
4. ASDA ‘Free From’ Choco Squares
A gluten-free chocolate cereal option for the chocolate lovers out there. Asda offers lots of free-from cereal options including these delicious Choco Squares. They are filled with a delicious hazelnut cream filling.
5. Deliciously Ella Granola

If you are missing out on your Weetabix fix, no need to worry as Nutribex have created a very similar cereal which is gluten-free, low in sugar and high in fibre!
