A form of rice in which the rice grains are expanded to a volume that is several times larger than their original size. Commercially prepared puffed rice is produced with a process that places the rice grains under high temperatures and extreme pressure. When the pressure is quickly reduced, the grains expand to a larger size. Puffed rice is most often used for ready-to-eat cereals and commercially prepared rice cakes.
