Since introducing Kellogg’s Corn Flakes in 1906, Kellogg has invested decades of science and product development into health and nutrition. From being the first food company to employ our own dietitian, to running our own research labs and closely monitoring independent studies on breakfast, cereal, grains and fibre all around the world, we aim to keep abreast of the ongoing scientific advancements in nutrition and food research and take this into account as we strive to enhance existing cereals and develop new cereals.
What we learn constantly shapes our future direction. In the past few years, it’s helped us respond to consumer and market demands to lower sugar and sodium, as well as to increase the fibre and maintain the great taste in many of our cereals. We are always looking for ways to provide more nutritious, convenient and affordable foods loved by consumers around the world. Because the information we’ve gained has added to our own knowledge base, we are eager to share it with others, too.
