Cereals are one of mankind's oldest foods and are one of our principal sources of sustenance. The variety of cereals on offer and their wholesomeness make them an almost indispensable part of any diet.
All grass plants whose seeds can be made into flours, that are particularly rich in carbohydrates, can be considered cereals. They are so fundamental to our diet that around 60% of all farmland is dedicated to their cultivation. The cereals we use in our recipes are:
Kinder selection and quality control
A great deal of thought, care and attention goes into our cereal blends. Five types of cereal are used in our Kinder Chocolate with Cereals: barley, rice, wheat, spelt and buckwheat. We have carefully studied the proportions of each blend and the toasting of each cereal to make sure our products give you that unmistakable Kinder flavour, aroma and crispiness. When it comes to our ingredients even the treatment is important. We only buy our puffed grains, used in Kinder Chocolate with Cereals, from Italian suppliers that are specialised in the field. The grains are then toasted in our plants so we can be sure that they are just as crisp and as fragrant as we demand. We buy our wheat from many countries around the world so we can guarantee the variety and quality of our flours. Rice, barley, rye and oats come from Europe and Russia, our buckwheat from China, whereas our spelt only comes from Italy.
