WHY WHOLE GRAIN?
We believe in the wholesome goodness of whole grains. That’s why the first ingredient in all of our General Mills Big G cereal brands is 100% whole grain from oats, wheat, rice or corn. Because whole is the best way to keep in the nutritional goodness of the grain.
Today, General Mills has more ready to eat cereals that are whole grain 1st ingredient than any other cereal producer in the U.S.
