Nutritional Benefits of Grains
More than 100 years ago, W.K. Kellogg saw the promise in a single grain. And with a simple flake of toasted corn, he introduced breakfast cereal to the world.
Today cereal grains form the foundation of a healthy diet for millions of people. They’re rich in complex carbohydrates, they’re naturally low in fat, and they can be a significant source of some key vitamins and minerals.
Simply put, grain-based foods help to supply you with the fuel you need so you can make the most of every day.
