Kelloggs -- Haram ingredients


Thank you for your inquiry regarding gelatin used in Kellogg's® Pop-Tarts® Frosted Strawberry toaster pastries. We are glad you contacted us and we are happy to provide you with this information. Please note that this information applies only to products distributed in the U.S.

Gelatin derived from beef is found in Kellogg's® Pop-Tarts® Frosted Strawberry toaster pastries and all varieties of Kellogg's® Frosted Pop-Tarts®, Kellogg's® Frosted Mini-Wheats® cereal, and Kellogg's® Rice Krispies Treats™ cereal. None of the equipment that comes in contact with the gelatin in Kellogg's® Frosted Pop-Tarts® is used in the production of the other pastries. As a result, Plain (unfrosted) Kellogg's® Pop-Tarts® do not contain gelatin. The pre-gelatinized wheat starch contained in some of our toaster pastries is derived from wheat and does not contain any gelatin.

Gelatin derived from pork is found in Kellogg's® cereal products that co ntain marshmallow additives, for example Kellogg's® Marshmallow Froot Loops cereal and Kellogg's Smorz® cereal. It is also found in all varieties of Kellogg's® Rice Krispies Treats® Squares and Special K® Protein Snack Bars.

Again, thank you for contacting us. We appreciate your loyal use of our products and hope that this provides you with the information you need to make food choices appropriate for you and your family.
