How much sugar in Weet-Bix™?

Is Weet-Bix™ a wholegrain cereal?
Yes, Weet-Bix™ contains 97% wholegrain wheat. One 30g serve of Weet-Bix™ contributes 60% towards the Grains and Legumes Nutrition Council™ 48g Wholegrain Daily Target Intake.
Why is 375g Weet-Bix™ being made in Australia?
Our 375g Weet-Bix™ range used to be manufactured in Christchurch. When our Christchurch factory was destroyed by the earthquake back in 2011, Australia offered to step in and help us. Although we would have loved to shift all manufacturing to Auckland, our factory is running at full capacity. With the support of Australia manufacturing we are able to keep Weet-Bix™ in stock. Weet-Bix™ 375g is made in a factory where soy products are also produced and therefore it now contains a ‘May contain soy’ statement on the pack. No other Weet-Bix™ products are affected.
Where does the wheat come from?

How much sugar is in Gluten Free Weet-Bix™?
There is 1.1g per serve which equals about a quarter of a teaspoon per two biscuit serving. There is 3.5g of sugar per 100g.
Since it’s gluten free, does it mean that it has been highly processed?
Gluten Free Weet-Bix™ is minimally processed – wholegrains are cooked, flattened in a mill and baked in an oven – one of the least processed packaged foods. It is gluten free – not from processing but because we use an ancient grain, Sorghum, which is naturally gluten free.
