Oats for All

See how we made Cheerios gluten free.

It all starts with oats.

Cheerios have always been made of oats, which are naturally gluten free.

Did you know?

To make gluten‑free Cheerios, our sifter has to sort 3.5 million pounds of oats every day.

Then, the oats are milled into flour.

The oats go to a mill that’s dedicated to making gluten‑free flour. Once the oats are milled, the flour is checked to make sure it’s still gluten‑free.

The oat flour gets shipped to the plant.

The flour travels in our dedicated gluten‑free trucks and rail cars on its way to becoming Cheerios.

And then it’s made into Cheerios.

Using the same recipe as always, we puff and toast the oat flour into Cheerios. The finished Cheerios are checked once more to ensure they’re gluten‑free.
