It had nothing to do with how much it expands. Some brands contain citric acid and when mixed with water will release gas. That gas could contribute to bloat.
Drop a kibble into water and watch to see if it fizzes or bubbles. If it doesn't, then there is nothing to worry about.
Excessive water drinking when over-heated or after strenuous exercise may also contribute to a risk of bloat.
