Puffed rice, puff rice, or rice puff refers to various foods made by introducing air into rice, typically in such a way that the grains of rice become larger and lighter, while also reducing moisture to achieve a crisp texture consistency. A variety of methods exist to make puffed rice, with varying effects on the final product.[1]

Examples of puffed rice foods include:

  • Ampaw, a Filipino snack made with puffed rice grains
  • Muri (food), South Asian puffed rice grains
  • Rice Krispies, or Rice Bubbles, a commercial breakfast cereal marketed by Kellogg's
  • Twibap (튀밥), puffed rice grains in Korea which is an ingredient of yeot-gangjeong and gangjeong
