The Journey of Our Food: From Field to Pantry

 

More and more people today want to know where their food comes from and how it’s grown and made. That’s why we created infographics showing how four of our popular U.S. cereals and snacks journey from field to pantry.

 

For example, take the journey of the delicious blend of wheat and rice in Kellogg’s® Special K® cereal.

 

Growing: Family-owned farmers in Arkansas, California and Louisiana grow our medium-grain rice; family-owned farmers in Idaho and Michigan grow our soft white winter wheat.

 

Milling: After months of growing, the rice and wheat are harvested and our millers select the best grains to clean.

 

Cooking: The wheat and rice are gently steam-cooked under pressure.

 

Flaking: The grain blend is gently dried and formed through rollers or milled into small pellets until perfect thin flakes are produced.

 

Toasting: Flakes are quickly toasted in ovens to give them a bubbly texture, golden color and toasted favor.

 

Fortifying and flavoring: Vitamins, salt, malt flavoring and sugar are added.

 

Packaging: We carefully package each box for you to enjoy.

NEW Research Report: What Science Says about GMOs

 

Do consumers ask you about GMO safety or do you wonder yourself? A recently released report from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) helps allay concerns.

The report, Genetically Engineered Crops: Experiences and Prospects, concludes that there is no difference in potential or adverse health effects in GMO crops compared to non-GMOs. In other words, GMO crops are as safe to eat as their non-GMO counterparts.

A committee of more than 50 scientists worked on the report for more than two years and examined more than 900 relevant research studies and other publications.
