Is Weetabix Gluten Free?

The Answer is NO

 

Weetabix is not gluten free and is made from wheat. According to Weetabix UK – source:

All our products contain either wheat, barley or oats.

If you are residing in Australia you’d be happy to know that there are two gluten free alternatives available:

  • Weet-Bix™ Gluten Free
  • Weet-Bix™ Gluten Free with Coconut and Rice Puffs with a hint of Cinnamon Flavour

If you are residing in other parts of the world, you will have to wait until this variant of gluten-free Weetabix is launched near you.
