Q: How much processing is done to your products? - Jacqueline, Adelaide South Australia
A: That’s a great question, Jacqueline and one we know lots of people are interested in.
In general, the process of making cereal is pretty simple – first we cook grains with sugar, malt extract and salt for flavour and fortify them with nutrients. They’re then dried, before being shredded, flaked, puffed or toasted. Depending on the variety, they’re then mixed with other ingredients like fruits, nuts or coated with honey for added taste.
While our recipes vary slightly, the core process for making one of our cereals is similar across the range. The simple steps of making Corn Flakes® are similar to how you’d make them in your own kitchen. See for yourself in this Seed to Spoon animation about how we make corn flakes here.
