Are Rice Krispies Halal?

Are Rice Krispies halal? In this blog, I seek to answer this question and put your worries to rest. Rice Krispies are a breakfast cereal made by Kellogg’s. The original version was first introduced in 1927 and consists of rice flakes that are toasted and puffed.

Much like candies like Sour Patch Kids which are halal, the cereal is popular with both children and adults alike and is enjoyed around the world. Rice Krispies are generally considered to be a healthy cereal, as they are low in sugar and calories.

A Closer Look

Halal foods are those that are permissible for Muslims to eat according to Islamic law. The criteria for what is considered halal are fairly straightforward, but can vary depending on interpretation. In general, halal foods are those that are:

-Free from any type of impurity or contamination

-Not made with any forbidden ingredients

-Slaughtering of animals is done in a humane manner and according to Islamic ritual

So, now that we know what halal foods are, let’s take a look at whether or not Rice Krispies are included in this category.

Most of the ingredients in Rice Krispies are halal, but there is no official halal certification for the cereal. This means that it’s unclear whether or not gelatin or pork products are used in its production. However, the brand does make halal-certified cereals separately, which can be consumed without any worry!
