Have Uncle Tobys Vita Brits changed?

In January 2021, we made a few small changes to our Uncle Tobys Vita Brits recipe and packaging. Rest assured our biscuits are still made using 100% Australian whole grain wheat with a dash of salt and absolutely no added sugar. The technique we use to make our Vita Brits has changed resulting in a more compact biscuit. We’ve updated the type of salt we use and replaced the seal on the inner bag with a fold over close. Each serve of Uncle Tobys Vita Brits continues to provide a nutritious and delicious breakfast and you can view product details here.

Is UNCLE TOBYS oats packaging recyclable?

All the outer cartons of UNCLE TOBYS oats products are paper-based and suitable for kerbside recycling.

UNCLE TOBYS is rolling out a kerbside recyclable, paper-based sachet for two new oats products in the Delicious Blends range: Murray River Raisin & Queensland Mango and Macadamia.

The new paper-based packaging is made with a thin barrier coating material that enables adequate sealing to maintain the flavour and quality of your morning oats.

Do good and recycle these sachets in your home recycling bin.  By recycling these Delicious Blends sachets, consumers will help to divert more than 10 tonnes of packaging from landfill to the paper recycling stream in 2023.

The multi-laminate sachets for all other Quick Sachet Oats products are currently not recyclable, but we are committed to making 100% of our packaging recyclable by 2025.

Do Uncle Tobys® products contain palm oil?

Our cereals don’t use palm oil as an ingredient, however some of our snacks do contain sustainable and traceable palm oil, certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.

Where do you source your grains?

Uncle Tobys has been processing oats since 1893 and we only source our Oats from local farmers in Australia. Most of our Oats come from within 250km of the Uncle Tobys factory in Wahgunyah by the banks of the the Murray river.

How do I cook oats to get the best result?

Check out our fail safe guides for cooking the perfect bowl of porridge.

How can I prevent my oats over-flowing when cooking in the microwave?

Try cooking your oats in the 30 second intervals, stirring in between, to ensure a nice, evenly cooked bowl without the over-flow.

Do you use genetically modified ingredients?

At Uncle Tobys we don't use genetically modified ingredients, as defined by food regulations. We also require our suppliers to ensure that they don't supply genetically modified ingredients to us.
