    Whole Grain

    Looking for whole grain?

    Wherever you see the green banner on our packs, it shows our commitment to making it easy for you to get tasty whole grain every morning.

    Just look for the green banner.

    The bold, bright green banner with the whole grain tick on our packs shows our commitment to making it as easy as possible for you and your family to get tasty whole grain every morning. Wherever you see the green banner, you can be sure the cereal contains at least 8g of whole grain in each serving. Guaranteed. That’s pretty helpful when you’re rushing around the supermarket and there’s no time to think, let alone read the small print.

    Did you

    know?

    A whole lot of grains

    One bushel of wheat contains around a million individual whole grain kernels.

    Chewing It Over

    People have been eating whole grains for more than 17,000 years – they picked seeds, rubbed off the husks and chewed the kernels raw or boiled them in water.

    What’s so good about whole grain?

    Whole grain provides a range of vitamins, minerals, fibre, starch and other nutrients – that’s why it’s often recommended we eat three to five servings a day. But research shows we’re not getting enough. Fortunately, breakfast is a good way to get some whole grain first thing. So we’re always working behind the scenes to make sure our breakfast cereals give you and your family a daily dose of the good stuff.

    KOKO KRUNCH® is made with whole grain as the number one ingredient. So when you see the green banner on a pack, you’ll be 100% sure the cereal contains whole grain!

    Do Nestlé products in emerging countries have more salt than products in developed/developing countries?

    For the last 15 years we’ve been working to reduce the sodium (which is the major component of salt) in our breakfast cereals across the world because we want to keep making them more nutritious. Achieving consistency in all products, in all countries, takes time - so some may have more sodium than others. Our aim is for all our cereals – globally – to have the same reduced levels of sodium, with a target of less than 135mg per serving in all our children's products.

    How can I find foods made with whole grain?

    Two things to remember: • Look for food labels where the word 'whole' appears in front of the name of the grain, like “whole wheat” or “wholemeal bread”. • For foods with more than one ingredient, make sure whole grain is listed towards the top of the ingredients list. The further up the list it is, the more whole grain has been used in the recipe. And look out for the percentage of whole grain. You should find this in the ingredients list too. It’s easy to know if a Nestlé breakfast cereal is made with whole grain: just look out for the Green Banner and whole grain tick on top of the box.

    I’ve heard a low GI diet can help me lose weight. Is this true?

    It’s too early to say. The science in this area is still emerging. There is evidence that low GI foods take longer to digest and help you feel satisfied for longer, but none that you’ll eat fewer calories at the next meal.
