I recently started eating Kashi GoLean Crisp, Toasted Berry Crumble and have had a bad time with nausea and headaches. It's not a fiber thing, as I eat way more fiber in a day than is provided by this cereal, so I'm wondering what particular ingredient may be producing these symptoms.

Any ideas?

None of them should, unless you have developed an intolerance. Wheat, corn, and soy are common causes of intolerances. If you don't notice any trouble from eating anything else with wheat, corn, or soy, perhaps you got a bad batch of cereal.

Thanks everyone, it is perplexing to say the least.

Since I do not have a problem with wheat, corn, or soy foods I'm wondering if it might be because of the chicory root?

Any basis for that?

Hmm, chicory root is actually an herbal headache treatment, amongst having many other health giving properties.

I would return the uneaten portion to the store for a refund, if possible, wait a week, and buy a fresh box, to see if it happens again. And check the sell-by dates. Some stores have very slow turn-over of certain products, and sometimes they miss stuff that should be pulled from the shelves.

And I hope you are feeling better!

Thank Christ that DS was here to sort it all out. Yes of course I was recently abducted by aliens.
In fact, this dude named Jose Chung has been trying to record my story but I haven't been forthcoming with the details because I thought he looked a bit too much like Charles Nelson Reilly.

I've had issues with kashi cereals in the past as well (but not the kind of symptoms you are having).

I'd do what SomebodyElse suggested. That way you can see if it really is the cereal or if it is something else.
Hope you feel better!

Jose Chung died


Seriously though, how long after having the cereal do the symptoms appear?

What do you eat them with? Did you maybe recently change your milk or something?

There is a brand of soy milk here I CANNOT drink because it gives me terrible allergic symptoms! Like my tongue swells, throat closes etc. It doesn't happen with any of the other soy milks. Super weird. That's why I was wondering.

Have to say, I'm kind of rofl. We had some of that in the pantry, though it gives me ridiculous gas. I was just recently talking to my sister about Kashi GoLean stuff and she said her husband eats it, but he complains it gives him bad gas. Well my husband has been getting tired of Cheerios, so he has been eating cereals I bought, and this morning had a bowl of Kashi GoLean stuff. Tonight he was complaining that he had awful gas but he had no idea why. I was laughing so hard and asked if he liked the cereal, then explained the GoLean Gas! So I don't know about the headaches, but queasiness could be the result of gas.

Me too!

My husband and I used to get crazy nausea if we ate Kashi Cereal too quickly. It was terrible, I have intolerance to wheat where he never seems to have any issues with food at all. I used to comment to him that eating Kashi was similar to how we women feel when we're pregnant. We quit it altogether years ago. I just the other day thought, I'm going to take a stab at it again... nope, same thing, burping, bloating, queasy. Its the one processed type food in the world that seems to do this to me.
