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[1] But research shows we’re not getting enough[2]. 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.

Nestlé cereals popular with children, like KOKO KRUNCH®, HONEY STARS® , MILO® Cereal and COOKIE CRISP® have more whole grain than any other ingredient. So when you see the green banner on a pack, you’ll be 100% sure the cereal contains whole grain!

What are the health and nutritional benefits of Nestlé Gluten Free Corn Flakes?
As well as being a healthy choice for people who want to reduce the amount of gluten in their diet, or have coeliac disease or a gluten intolerance, Gluten Free Corn Flakes are fortified with B-vitamins, folic acid and iron
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.

Is Nestlé planning to launch gluten-free versions of its other cereals or cereal bars?
Not yet, but we will keep listening and responding to people’s needs.
Why do some breakfast cereals have different serving sizes labeled on pack?

The serving sizes mentioned on breakfast cereals can slightly differ, mainly due to differences in product density. Beyond its nutrients density, it’s also important for the portion size to suit the average cereal bowl. Some types of breakfast cereals, such as mueslis or granolas, are denser than traditional flakes; so a 30 g serving could look tiny and unrealistic in a bowl – that's why we use 45 g as a reference. These different serving sizes have been defined by the European cereals trade association and consistently applied by all industry members in Europe.

Does the high GI of breakfast cereals negate the whole grain benefits?

No. Even though some foods made with whole grain have a high GI, you can still benefit by including them in a healthy, balanced diet. Eating lots of whole grain can be good for the heart, even if the GI of the food is high. The whole population can benefit from eating more whole grain; the effect of low GI foods is still not clear.
