Looking for whole grain? ...
At Nestlé Breakfast Cereals we understand that whole grain is recommended as an important part of a varied, balanced diet. So wherever you see the bold, bright green banner with the whole grain tick on our packs, you can be sure the cereal contains at least 8 grams of whole grain in each serving. Guaranteed.
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 8 grams of whole grain in each serving. Guaranteed. That’s pretty helpful when you’re rushing round the supermarket and there’s no time to think, let alone read the small print.
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.
SHREDDED WHEAT is already made with 100% whole grain, and by the end of 2015, Nestlé Cereals popular with children will 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!

We've tried to answer as many of your questions as possible. You can search them all here:
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 on making them more nutritious. Achieving consistency on 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.
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
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.
Why does Nestlé label vegetable oil?
Because it’s industry practice to label seasonal oils (oils that aren’t consistently available across the year). In Europe it’s now mandatory to detail the types of vegetable oils used in a food product. So it’s no longer permitted to use the term “vegetable oil” on a label.
