Q: Even the corn flakes are loaded with sugar and salt let alone froot loops how can you claim the your products are healthy for children or for that matter everyone?
- Fred, Perth, Western Australia
A: Hi Fred, we work hard to make sure that our cereals are both tasty and nutritious. The little bit of sugar and salt that we do use plays a pretty important role - it helps to give the cereal a nice crunchy texture, it also helps with food preservation so that our cereals have a longer shelf life and of course, it makes the grains taste a little nicer as by themselves they can be a bit bitter, which isn’t a great way to start your day.
A serve of Corn Flakes has only half a teaspoon of sugar and if you’d like more information about the sugar found in our cereal check out this infographic.
