So, what is puffed rice?

Puffed rice is a light and crispy ingredient that is made by subjecting rice grains to high heat and pressure. As the rice grains heat up, the moisture inside them turns into steam, causing them to expand and puff up into tiny, airy kernels. This process not only gives puffed rice its distinctive texture, but also enhances its nutritional value by making it easier to digest and increasing its volume. Puffed rice is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of sweet and savory dishes, including breakfast cereals, granola bars, rice cakes, and snacks. Its light, crunchy texture and neutral flavor make it a popular choice for adding crunch and volume to salads, soups, and stir-fries.
