Pre-packaged Kellogg's Rice Krispie Treats?
0

6 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I'm confused about the allergen listing on the pre-packaged Kellogg's brand Rice Krispie treats-- my son loves these and takes them with his lunch sometimes as a snack. I'm wondering if I could eat them too (I'm the celiac in the house)? Kellogg's lists only the following: CONTAINS MILK AND SOY INGREDIENTS. Are the ingredients in these different from the regular cereal boxes? Malt is still listed as an ingredient. What gives?

Malt does not come from wheat, it comes from barley. Barley IS a gluten-containing grain, but it is not one of the "top 8" allergens that are required to be listed.

Food manufacturers are not required to list gluten, only the top 8 allergens.

Wheat and Soy are one of the top eight allergens which by law must be listed either in the ingredient listing or in an allergen statement. Barley, malt and rye do not have to be listed and may be hidden in "natural flavors".

Here is a list of companies who will clearly list all forms of gluten to include barley, rye and malt:

Kellogg's Rice Krispies are not gluten free. (as you stated, malt is an ingredient.)

If you like Rice Krispie Treats...

The other month I got Erewhon brand cereal -- 100% Whole Grain Cereal Crispy Brown Rice (gluten free) and made krispie treats using Kraft Jet Puffed marshmallows. Still used the recipe on the bag (making sure all ingredients were gluten free) and split it in half so I didn't have to make a lot. They turned out good. My husband who can eat gluten liked them better than real rice krispie treats.
