Nestlé Develops Optimum Ratio Formula For Ceereal Carbs, Fiber, Sugar

December 22, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Collaborating with scientists from Australia, Singapore, and Tufts University (Boston, Mass.), Nestlé has developed and validated a new nutritional concept for carbohydrate quality in a porridge or cereal format. The Grainsmart balance concept is a defined ratio between carbohydrates, fibers, and sugars that aims to limit the number of free sugars and increase the number of fibers, which helps to shift to healthier products and balanced products diets. This ratio is 10:1:2 and indicates that for every 10 g of total carbohydrates, there should be a minimum of one gram of fiber and no more than two g of free sugars when developing certain products such as cereals. Products that meet the 10:1:2 ratio can include the Grainsmart balance logo on pack. Nestlé has launched the first products based on Grainsmart balance, consisting of an oatmeal cereal product range with Nutri-Score A rating in Europe.
