Q: What is a whole grain cereal?
- Danielle, Launceston, Tasmania
A: Hi Danielle, Wholegrain cereals contain flakes that include all three parts of the natural grain. The whole grain includes:
- Germ – at the centre of the grain and the embryo of the seed
- Endosperm – the layer around the germ, which contains carbohydrates and protein and is there to nourish a new plant
- Bran – surrounds the endosperm and is rich in fibre.
Kellogg’s products that contain wholegrains are Guardian, Sultana Bran, Just Right, the Special K range, the Special K Nourish range, Sustain and many more.
