Nestle and General Mills Reduce Sugar and Sodium in Children’s Cereals Outside of U.S.
EMSL Analytical provides a variety of food analyses, including nutritional labeling services, for the food industry.
With health concerns over cereal increasing, Nestle SA and General Mills, who jointly market outside of the United States and Canada, plan to implement a sugar and salt reduction in children’s breakfast cereals.
Nestle SA and General Mills’ joint venture, Cereal Partners Worldwide (CPW), was established in 1990 and markets cereal to over 140 countries outside North America. CPW has become the second largest breakfast cereal producer in the world and is Europe’s leading children’s cereal manufacturer.
According to the Huffington Post, CPW plans to reformulate twenty cereal brands that are targeted toward children and teenagers by 2015. The reformulation will increase whole grains and calcium and will decrease sugar by 24 percent and sodium by 12 percent. Annually, this reformulation will affect 2.5 billion portions of cereal.
“Food’s nutritional value has become increasingly important to consumers around the world, and many companies are responding by creating products that promote better health,” states Shannon Kauffman, Food Chemistry Laboratory Manager at EMSL, a leading national food testing lab. “EMSL Analytical’s experienced staff provides advanced nutritional labeling analysis that complies with food labeling regulations.”
