Is Rice Krispies Cereal Vegan?
Starting the day with a bowl of Rice Krispies for breakfast meant you were destined to have a good day at school! No matter if you identified more with Snap, Crackle or Pop, you must be wondering if this childhood favourite is suitable for vegans.
One of Kellogg’s best-known cereals, Rice Krispies, have been around since the 1920s – and its recipe for cooked, dried and toasted rice cereal has remained virtually unchanged for almost 100 years.
Are Rice Krispies vegan friendly?
You’d think that something as simple as a breakfast cereal must be vegan (if you’re covering it in oat milk at least), but unfortunately, one of the vitamins (D3) that Rice Krispies are fortified with is animal-derived.
Can vegans eat Rice Krispie treats?
If the treats in question are made with Rice Krispies, then the answer is no. However, if a vegan-friendly alternative cereal is used then the answer becomes a tasty yes.
Our favourite is Rude Health’s Puffed Brown Rice!
