Celiac Awareness Month Day 13: Love Grown Foods

It’s DAY 13 of our Celiac Disease Awareness Month and we’re featuring a brand that I heard about from Chrissy from Glam without Gluten. She Instagrammed a bowl of their oatmeal and I asked about it. Turns out, the oatmeal was from a brand called Love Grown Foods – a brand that also reached out to me when I first talked about doing this month-long promotion.

While the Love Grown Foods brand is not a certified gluten-free brand, their oats are gluten-free and the above products are made in a facility that doesn’t contain wheat. Their new Power O’s are awesome – they are BEAN BASED cereal. Seriously, take that all in. Cereal. Made with Beans. However, they are made in a facility made with wheat. So, as a celiac, I cannot tell other celiacs to try these out. However, I ate them and thought they were an awesome new product so if you are gluten intolerant or like my significant other – gluten-free for support, I would suggest at least trying their Chocolate Power O’s – beany, and chocolate-y, and pretty dang great. I’m really hoping they will eventually be made in a facility without wheat and certified gluten-free so you all can try them.

Gluten-Free Oats, honey, pecans, dried cranberries (apple juice concentrate, sunflower oil), agave syrup, expeller pressed canola oil, coconut, sunflower seeds, pure vanilla, milled flaxseed, cinnamon, sea salt *Contains tree nuts. Made with LOVE in a facility that also processes soy.

Example ingredients (Super Oats & Chia – Nuts & Seeds):

    I really love the sound of the Honey Power O’s, and the Hot Oats sound like the perfect travel staple for those terrible hotel breakfasts. I’ve never heard of Love Grown, but I think they may have a new customer.

    That customer would be me!

    All their cereal products are misleading and improperly labeled. You cannot say “wheat free” all over the front in big letters, then have the fine print on the back say that it is processed in a facility that contains wheat! Our 22 month old son had a wheat reaction to their Love’s cereal.

    • Marty March 7, 2017 at 9:21 pm Reply

      I believe my son who is sensative to Even the smallest amount of gluten, has had a reaction after eating the Love Grown fruity stars. On the shelf were Fruity stars that said certified gluten free but didn’t mention anything about those allergies being shared in the same facility and then there were Fruity star boxes saying only Wheat Free but that it was produced in the same facility as wheat and so on. So I’m confused as well and the box information is misleading. 🙁

    General Mills bought this company – I work in a grocery store near General Mills Headquarters and have this information first hand from General Mills’ employees. With the change in ownership I suspect the production methods and recipe has changed too. I’ve personally noticed a decline in the taste of the Comet Crispies – a change which coincided with the package change.The new version has less cocoa- tastes too sweet now. In 2014 it may have been processed in a dedicated facility- but now that it’s owned by General Mills that’s likely changed.
