Nestlé unveils the benefits of whole grain cereal as a delicious option

Written by Evelyn Alas

Whole grain cereal is a delicious way to take advantage of the first meal of the day to start our mornings on the right foot.

While it is true that its consumption is not limited only to breakfast, having an adequate portion of whole grain cereal, accompanied by other food groups such as dairy, protein and fruit, is a nutritious, fast and fun alternative for both children and adults. 

Whole grains, also known as whole grain cereals, contain important nutrients that promote health and proper functioning of our body, providing energy and satiety. Many foods contain whole grains such as whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, wild rice, oatmeal and cereals.


A characteristic of whole grain cereals is that they maintain all the layers of the grain including its outer husk. The three parts that make up the grain are:

The bran where fiber, vitamins and antioxidants are concentrated.

The germ concentrates vitamin B and vitamin E, minerals such as magnesium and essential fatty acids such as omega 6.

The endosperm, starch inside the grain that contains protein and carbohydrates for energy.

"A 48-gram serving of whole grain cereal can easily be included in the daily diet of the whole family. They provide a protective action against cardiovascular diseases, a feeling of satiety, favor the maintenance of a healthy weight and contribute to the protection of the gastrointestinal system", said Patricia Vial, Nutrition, Health and Wellness specialist at Nestlé Central America.


As part of the International Whole Grain Day, Nestlé commemorates this event with a wide variety of brands that contain whole grain as the main ingredient, including Corn Flakes, Nesquik, Crunch, Trix, Cinnamom Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, La Lechera Flakes, and of course the wide range of Fitness and Cheerios.

For Nestlé, the well-being of people is the most important thing, and for this reason, the company remains firm in its purpose of developing the full power of food to improve the quality of life, today and for future generations.
