Sourcing Post cereal ingredients

Your favorite Post®  cereal brands like Grape-Nuts® cereal, Great Grains® cereal, and Better Oats® cereal, and beyond begin with high-quality, responsibly-sourced ingredients.

Watch the video below to hear the full story behind our cereal ingredient sourcing processes:

How are Post cereal ingredients sourced?

Many ingredients found in Post cereals are sourced from the U.S., though many of our oats are sourced from Canada. Post is committed to responsibly sourcing from trusted suppliers that are committed to sustainable farming and are aligned with the Global Food Safety Initiative.

What main ingredients go into Post cereals?

Post cereals are typically made from five key ingredients – wheat, corn, oats, sugar and rice. Our team then adds in a mix of our tasty and unique flavors, essential vitamins, and minerals. Finally, marshmallows are added to fun-shaped cereals like Malt-O-Meal Marshmallow Mateys®.

Post Consumer Brands is also committed to providing a variety of Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, and heart-healthy ingredients so those with all dietary restrictions and lifestyles can satisfy their breakfast cereal cravings and enjoy our signature flavors. Use our cereal search tool to find a cereal you know and love or try something new based on your preferences. 

No matter your taste, you can always enjoy the wholesome taste of cereal that starts with high-quality ingredients. Explore more detailed nutrition and production information for our cereals.
