Note: Weetabix is the British/International version of the original Australian Weet-Bix
The UK product range has recently grown from the Classic Weetabix brand we all know and love to include additional product ranges.
Let’s find out if this cereal is gluten-free.
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.
