Are Nature Valley Granola Bars Gluten-Free?

The Answer is: YES

 

According to a recent blog post published by General Mill, select Nature Valley Granola Bars are Gluten-Free. The company now offers a selection of gluten free products, but not all of their products are free from wheat/gluten so ALWAYS check the label beforehand.

The blog post states:

Three of them – Roasted Nut Crunch, Protein and Protein Greek Yogurt bars – are already gluten-free but never advertised that fact on the label. The formula on a fourth, Nut Crisps, was tweaked to make it gluten-free. And the fifth, Simple Nut Bar, was developed as a gluten-free product…

Natural Vally has recently launched a complete selection of gluten-free Granola Bars. Here is the list of the full range of products that are ideal for your consumption if you suffer from celiac disease or are sensitive to gluten.
