Gluten-Free Rice Krispie Treats
0

12 posts in this topic

Hi there,

If anyone read my post about the grief my newly diagnosed 6-yr-old child was experiencing, today's meltdown was over her wanting a traditional Rice Krispies treat snack-pack. My husband went to the store to buy the ingredients for gluten-free Rice Krispie treats and we googled the recipes online. While Kraft foods maintains that their Marshmallow Fluff is gluten-free on its website, every single recipe I've searched for incorporates Kraft's mini marshmallows in the recipe, and nowhere did anyone use Kraft's marshmallow fluff. I just wondered if this was merely a coiincidence, or is there something I'm missing? Does anyone know if traditional Marshmallow Fluff is truly safe? I've read the labels online, visited Kraft's website, and they have a nutrition Q&A column there, which states that Marshmallow Fluff is gluten free and kosher. So I should be safe in baking them, but I'm wondering why no gluten-free recipes are using it. Thank you!!

I eat kraft marshmallows and marshmallow fluff all the time. I don't see why it would matter in the recipe if you used kraft instead of the other brand. As for the mention of it in (or lack there of) in recipes, that particular brand is what they used. The traditional marshmallow fluff has been around and people tend to buy what is most familure.

Yes, they are.

Nature's Path Crispy Rice is similar, but is gluten-free and organic (and more expensive, of course).

We don't use any Rice Krispy's we us Fruity Pebbles and they make awesome marshmello treat. I take them to luncheons and they are always the first desert to go. Make them just like rice krispies but replace them with fruity pebbles or the cocco ones.

We have also found gluten-free rice crispy treats to buy at Whole Foods. They come in that all-important shiny wrapper that our pre-schooler considers important. We send them as emergency treats to school.

Hi there,

Just wanted to let you know that Children's Hospital Boston told us last week to stay away from Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles as tests showed significant cross contamination. Post Cereals makes gluten containing cereals and that is why they refuse to label those 2 cereals gluten free, because of the cross contamination factor. A child at Children's was found to have high levels of gluten in her blood work, and they traced it back to the cereal. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I thought I should let you know. Take care, Emily

Yeah, I don't do any mainstream cereals except Chex. The risk of cc just seems way too high. There are so many gluten-free alternatives out there and if you buy through amazon and use their subscription service the price isn't "that" bad.

I've never seen a recipe that called for fluff. I always use the standard recipe (the one with 40 large marshmallows) and just sub gluten-free cereal.

There are also gluten-free crispy rice snacks that even come in blue individual packages. You might check those out for long shelf life versions of the famous kid snack!

[Don't know if anyone else here has WinCo near them but in their bulk section, they carry a rice krispy treat individually wrapped. I've read the ingredients and except for possible cross contamination, they appear OK?

    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I am sorry that you are sick!  😔.  I think you need to find out which celiac antibody tests were given.  Often just the TTG Is ordered for initial screening.  This test catches most, but not all celiacs (like me!)   You also need to see if they gave you the igA deficency test too.   Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)   -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You can go gluten free, but knowing if you have an autoimmune disease is helpful.  celiac disease is genetic (you have the genes, but so does 30% of the population and that's why the gene test is used only to exclude celiac disease and not diagnose it).   All family members should be tested even if they are symptom free.   I hope you figure it out and I am sorry that you had such a horrible experience.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
