Nestlé Cereals is bringing a new, four-ingredient cereal to market: Shreddies The Simple One.
Made with whole grain wheat, fruit purée, date syrup and salt, the new SKU contains 5% sugar, with ‘no compromise on taste’. Further, it contains no refined sugar and is free from artificial colours and flavours.
Scoring a ‘green’ under the UK’s nutritional traffic light labelling scheme, Nestlé Cereals’ Regional Marketing Director UKA, Toby Baker, suggested The Simple One responds to consumer demand for healthy food, ‘especially following the pandemic’.
“Shreddies The Simple One is an exciting new addition to the breakfast table that caters to growing demand, with a delicious taste consumers will love. With increased interest in low sugar options, it offers retailers an opportunity to appeal to new consumers while driving sales.
“The launch of SHREDDIES The Simple One also marks a milestone in our promise to make breakfast better. While we are on an ongoing reformulation journey, having reduced average sugar in our products by 20.6% since 2010, this launch highlights our new innovative approach to NPD, in which we are not just reducing negative nutrients, but starting with less – just four ingredients in this case.”
Baker continued: “Being a non-HFSS and all green traffic light product, it also supports our wider commitment to ensuring the majority of our cereals are non-HFSS by the end of 2021.”
