Some of the biggest brands in the world are recognizing that people want more plant-based options. This include Pepsi Co., Quaker, and even McDonald’s. Kellogg’s, the famous cereal brand that’s been around since 1898, has now launched a plant-based, healthy line of cereal made with fruits and vegetables called “No Sugar Added.”

As the name implies, there is no added sugar in these cereals. They are made with wholesome ingredients like carrot, apple, raisins, walnuts, and more. The “No Sugar Added” line includes No Sugar Added Granolas in the flavors Apricot & Pumpkin Seeds and Coconut Cashew & Almond. There are also the Organic Wholegrain Wheats in the flavors Original and Raisin. Lastly, there’s a Super Grains Granola in the flavors Cranberry and Sultana & Spelt.
Emma Birks, W.K.Kellogg Brand Manager for the UK and Ireland says, “We’re committed to creating foods which suit changing consumer diets and with people increasingly seeking more plant-based foods, the W.K.Kellogg range is crucial to our portfolio. The brand will satisfy consumers searching the aisles for organic, vegan-friendly foods with natural flavorings and the ‘No Added Sugar’ label.”
These cereals are currently available in the UK and are hopefully just the start to more similar plant-based, healthy products.
