Pre-packaged Kellogg's Rice Krispie Treats?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

These are gluten free. Daughter likes the plain ones better than the chocolate.

They are gluten-free but do have a "May contain traces of ___" disclaimer so if you have other allergies, they might not work for you.

    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.      
    • Nice to know that Disney makes an effort to take care of people with allergies or special diets (like gluten free!): https://publicaffairs.disneyland.com/walt-disney-parks-resorts-receives-honors-allergy-friendly-fare/
    • Wow, I also had pyloric stenosis that was misdiagnosed for some weeks as an infant (and almost died from it).  I also have Raynauld’s and I started following celiac diet, finding an immediate improvement of my symptoms.  I thought I was the only one that had all 3 of these diagnoses.   Interesting.
    • If you are lucky enough to travel in the Spanish-speaking world, just about anywhere you go, you will very likely run into a some version of chicken and rice, or ‘Arroz con Pollo’ as it appears on countless menus. This Cuban-style version relies on annatto oil to give it a red color. You can make your own annatto oil by putting achiote chili seeds in vegetable oil and heating it up for a few minutes over the stove. Cool and store. This version of chicken and rice is tasty, gluten-free and keeps well in the freezer. View the full article
