We’re Making Changes
 

We Heard You … And We’re Making Changes

 

We heard you, and we’ve been working hard to make changes to our foods to better meet consumer wants and needs.

Here’s our progress so far:

•    Most Special K® cereals contain whole grain as the first ingredient, and some contain colors and flavors from natural sources. We also changed the vitamin and mineral content to address specific shortfall nutrients for women. Look for our new packaging, too!
•    Kellogg’s® Raisin Bran® cereals are free from synthetic colors and artificial flavors.
•    Kellogg® Nutri-Grain® bars will not contain artificial flavors or colors from synthetic sources.
