Are Frosted Flakes Gluten Free?

Frosted Flakes or Frosties is a breakfast cereal, produced by the Kellogg Company and consisting of sugar-coated corn flakes. It was introduced in the United States in 1952, as Sugar Frosted Flakes. The word “sugar” was dropped from the name in 1983.

Generic versions, such as store brands, are also available. Unlike many cereals (Cheerios and Rice Krispies, for example), Frosted Flakes shares its name with generic competitors.
