Adventures in wheat.

I have Oatabix!

I emailed Weetabix last night with a sad story of a life with no weetabix, asking for confirmation of the ingredients of their new shiny Oatabix in relation to wheat content.
I got this reply already;

Dear [batswing]

Many thanks for your enquiry.

Oatibix are wheat ingredient free but are made on a line on which Weetabix are made. Of course, the line is cleaned thoroughly between production runs.

The same is true for the plain Oatibix Bitesize, though Bitesize with Sultana & Apple does contain a small amount of wheat fibre.

We trust this is of assistance.

Yours sincerely

Weetabix Limited

There are now Oatabix in my possesion. I shall now dedicate ten minutes to research to maintain whether this shared production line is going to be a problem. I know it's a sacrafice, but it's one I'm willing to make for the good of Wheatfree-Kind. *heroic sigh*


These taste like weetabix! *cheers*
They are slightly different in texture, being finer to the taste and less chunky to the chew. They soak up milk more quickly and completely than traditional Weetabix. They are ever so slightly softer (A bit soggier perhaps?), but they hold their shape perfectly if eaten normally. They are not gloopy as I suspected they may be. In fact they're actually very nice and I look forward to breakfast tomorrow!

So far no soreness, I'll keep you updated if anything suspiciously like cross-contamination soreness pops up!
