ALLERGEN STATEMENT:

If you have a diagnosed allergy, look for any potential allergens here.

CROSS-CONTACT ALLERGENS:

Indicates allergens that may not be used in the food, but may be present in the factory where this product is made.

ENERGY:

Check the total kilojoules in a serve if watching your weight. Aim for no more than 800kJ per serve for a breakfast cereal.

FIBRE:

Choose cereals with 2g fibre per serve or more (or around 7.5g per 100g). Foods with 4g per serve or more are considered high in fibre.

INGREDIENTS:

Are listed in descending order of amounts with the ingredient with the greatest amount listed first.

PER 100g:

Allows you to compare one food to another without worrying about differences in serving sizes.

SATURATED FAT:

Choose cereals with 1.5g per 100g or less (unless they contain oats, nuts and seeds as these contain some saturated fats).

SODIUM:

Look for cereals made with 400mg per 100g or less.

SUGAR:

Sugars are a type of carbohydrate. Gram for gram sugars deliver the same number of kilojoules as starch. Sugars may be added e.g. cane sugar, honey or syrup or naturally present as fruit or milk sugars.

VITAMINS & MINERALS:

Many foods may be fortified with vitamins and minerals such as iron and calcium. Look out for these when choosing a cereal.

WHOLEGRAIN:

Look for the word whole before the name of the grain e.g. wholemeal, whole wheat, etc. Check for the % of wholegrains and whether these are listed as one of the first ingredients. The Grains and Legumes Nutrition Council recommends adults aim to eat 48g wholegrain each day.
