How is Kellogg’s® Special K® made?
In order to put the ‘special’ in Special K®, we carefully craft every variety in the Special K range to ensure every bowl of cereal is both delicious and nutritious.
The process to transform the raw ingredients into Special K’s famous flakes is quite simple - so how do we do it?
Step one is easy:
We start by cooking some wheat, rice and oatmeal together with a dash salt and sugar to deliver our signature Special K flake. We also fortify the grains with some additional vitamins – like Vitamin D and Iron - to deliver essential nutrients to help support your wellbeing.
Step two: After cooking the grains are dried and then mixed into little chucky shapes that can be turned in the flakes.
Step three: To turn them into flakes - we all know and love - they simply go through a mill which is like two big rolling pins. Then they reach their final stop at the oven, finishing the process with the Special K cereals’ unmistakable crispiness.
From there, Special K Original is complete, while flakes destined to make up other Special K cereal flavours like Forest Berries, Fruit & Nut, and Advantage have delicious fruit or other inclusions added.
Special K not only makes for a delicious and healthy breakfast cereal, it can be used to make all sorts of snacks, from Cacao Protein Balls to Spiced Pear Breakfast Crumble. Explore the full list of Special K recipes.
