CHICAGO, April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- To Quaker, all whole grains are super in their own right and oats will always be the original super grain. As more consumers look to diversify their grain intake and add variety in taste and nutrition, Quaker, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, Inc., introduces Quaker SuperGrains Instant Hot Cereal and Real Medleys SuperGrains Granola. With a hearty blend of grains like oats, barley, rye and more, these new offerings are a powerful way to help start the day.
For nearly 140 years, Quaker has been a grain expert, bringing the goodness of oats to consumers through everything from hot oatmeal to snack bars. Now more than ever, desire for grain variety is increasingly important as the 2015 U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommend more nutrient dense and plant-based foods – including whole grains – as part of a healthy lifestyle. Quaker understands that grains can provide health benefits, and by mixing up grain intake, there is more potential for consumers to enjoy an assortment of nutrients.
"We're committed to uncovering the power of the whole grain oat to help fuel the busy lives of families, while at the same time offering delicious varieties," said Lesley Butler, senior marketing director, Quaker Foods North America. "That's why we're excited to introduce these new SuperGrains products with even more grain variety, tastes and textures."
