Default vitamini ot A do Z

Results from the 1995 National Nutrition Survey indicate that:
• People who eat any type of breakfast regularly have significantly higher intakes of almost all vitamins and minerals (especially calcium, iron and zinc) than people who routinely skip breakfast. Given that large numbers of Australians eat breakfast cereals which include vitamins and minerals for breakfast, it is reasonable to assume that the vitamins and minerals in them are making a contribution to this finding.
• People who eat breakfast cereal are much more likely to have diets that are adequate in vitamin A, riboflavin, calcium, iron and zinc than people who don’t eat breakfast cereal.
• Breakfast is especially important for children and teenagers, providing more than 40% of their daily requirements of protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, iron and magnesium.

A final comment
Cereals which include vitamins and minerals cannot compensate for a poor diet but can assist in meeting requirements for specific vitamins and minerals. Kellogg supports the consumption of breakfast cereals as part of an overall balanced and healthy diet rich in grain-based foods, fruit and vegetables and with moderate amounts of lean meats and low fat dairy products.







» RDI - What does this mean?
RDI stands for Recommended Daily Intake and refers to the levels of intake of essential nutrients considered to be adequate to meet the nutrition needs of most healthy people. The RDI’s on food labels are based on the needs of adult males.

For more information about the vitamin and mineral content of our products please contact our Customer Contact Centre on 1800 000 474 in Australia or 0800 881 889 in New Zealand and ask for a copy of our 'Nutrition Information' booklet.

» B-group vitamins
The B-group vitamins are also know as the “vitamin B complex” and include vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6, folate, vitamin B12 and biotin.

» Folate
Folate is needed for the growth and development of cells and is especially important for women in their childbearing years. It is found naturally in leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, wholegrain cereals, nuts and liver. The RDI for teenagers and most adults is 200 micrograms per day, and this doubles to 400 micrograms per day for women who are planning to become pregnant or are in the first trimester of pregnancy.

To find out more about the folate content of Kellogg breakfast cereal products check the Nutrition Information Panels on this site. To request a copy of our brochure called "Folate for Everybody" contact our Customer Contact Centre on 1800 000 474 in Australia or 0800 881 889 in New Zealand.

» Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which helps protect the body’s cells. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb iron – specifically the type of iron found mainly in plant foods. It also helps keep gums and teeth healthy. Food sources include most fruits (especially citrus fruits and some berries), and most vegetables (especially broccoli, spinach and cabbage). Some breakfast cereals also contain vitamin C. The adult RDI is 40mg for men and 30mg for women.

» Iron
Iron is a major part of the red blood cells in the body. It is needed to help carry oxygen around the body for daily activity. Iron is especially important for women. Vitamin C increases the absorption of the type of iron found in plant foods. Food sources include red meat, liver, fish, poultry, leafy green vegetables, eggs, legumes and breakfast cereals with iron. The Adult RDI is 7mg for men and 12-16mg for women.

To find out more about the iron content of Kellogg breakfast cereal products, check the Nutrition Information Panels on this site or contact our Consumer Contact Centre on 1800 000 474 in Australia or 0800 881 889 in New Zealand and ask for a copy of our “Nutrition Information” booklet.

» Salt
Salt is one of the oldest food ingredients used by people. It is used because of its taste, preservative effects and its role in bread making and fermentation.

» How much salt should we eat?
Scientists prefer to talk in terms of sodium, one of the two components of salt. The recommended daily intake of sodium is between 920 - 2300mg. This represents the amount found in about 3 - 6g, or 1/2 to one rounded teaspoon of salt. Sodium is naturally found in foods and is also added to foods during manufacture or during cooking or baking. Salt preferences vary widely. Many people are now consuming less salt, while there are also people who prefer moderate amounts of salt in their diets.

» Sodium in foods • Sodium is naturally present in some foods such as meat, fish, and milk. However, fruit, vegetables and grains generally have low a salt content.
• Sodium is also added in food processing. If you wish to limit your salt intake, it helps to read food labels, as listing the sodium content on the nutrition information panel is mandatory.
Foods with a “low salt” content are those with a sodium level listed in the nutrition information panel as less than 120mg per 100g. “Moderate” sodium levels are 400mg per 100g.
• At Kellogg, we provide a range of products to suit consumers’ different nutrition and taste needs.


» Salt and Kellogg's products
Kellogg offers a wide variety of products with differing sodium levels to help you choose a product to meet your needs. We regularly review the nutrition profile of our products to see where improvements can be made, including reducing the salt content of our products. An example of this is the salt reduction program that Kellogg undertook in 1997 on 12 of our breakfast cereal products. As a result of this program, 235 tonnes of salt have been removed annually from the Australian food supply.


To find out about the salt content of Kellogg products check the Nutrition Information Panels on this site or contact our Consumer Contact Centre on 1800 000 474 in Australia or 0800 881 889 and ask for a copy of our "Nutrition Information" booklet.
