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?

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
