What is the processed used by cereal makers to make cereal (most cereal makers)? I've heard it is toasting, and in that case the rabbi i spoke to said it would not be a problem of bishul goyim or pat goyim. I personally do not see the difference between baking and toasting. Can anyone point out the difference for me?

Yes but what about afia? – Hacham Gabriel Oct 20 '13 at 3:20
The opposite advice is often given for eating store-bought bread during 10 Yemei Teshuvah. Toast it, so it is like you baked it. I don't get that advice, either. – Seth J Oct 20 '13 at 4:24
