U.S. Cereals Higher in Sugar and Sodium Than in Certain Other Countries

A new survey of global breakfast cereal brands by the U.K.-based World Action on Salt and Health has revealed wide differences in the levels of sodium and sugar found in the same cereals around the world. For instance, Kellogg’s Honey Smacks had 55.6 grams (g) of sugar per 100 g in the U.S., but the same product contained only 43 g in several other countries. And Kellogg’s All Bran Flakes had 724 milligrams (mg) of sodium per 100 g compared to 280 mg per 100 g in certain other countries.
