Is Rice Krispies gluten free?
Kelloggs Rice Krispies are made with malt from Barley which may contain gluten and therefore not gluten-free. Although there are many brands that have gluten-free rice Krispy's that are safe. Some store brands may be gluten free but I advise you to always check the label to be sure that they do not have any gluten-containing ingredients.
