Gluten-Free Friday: Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal

After finishing up the box of Erewhon’s Buckwheat & Hemp cereal that I reviewed a few weeks ago, I was ready to move on to the second box that Attune Foods kindly sent me to try – Gluten-Free Crispy Brown Rice Cereal!

Like the buckwheat cereal, the Crispy Brown Rice is a very simple, healthy cereal that is minimally processed and only very lightly sweetened to keep the sugar content down.

My impression?  I really like it!  Wonderfully crispy and light.  Not quite as healthy tasting as the other one – you could definitely get your kids to eat this one, no problem.

I’ve been on a total Greek yogurt kick lately, so I’ve been adding a portion to my yogurt and fruit as an afternoon snack.  It gives it a nice texture and crunch, and I just love listening to the snap, crackle and pop!

Now, I know that Rice Krispies also offers a gluten-free brown rice version of their own.  The nutrition facts are similar, but the ingredient list on the Erewhon cereal is definitely a lot more appealing.

BHT, long name butylated hydroxytoluene, is a chemical preservative that is used in quite a few foods but is also an antiviral medicine used to treat herpes.  Yum.  I’ll go for the Erewhon, thank you very much!

You can find Erewhon cereals at a wide variety of stores, plus they have an online store with the entire line.
