Lower carb variations on favourites continue to dominate the new product landscape. But, along with cutting sugars and other refined starches from some products, Kellogg Canada has also introduced a couple of new products for Canadian consumers with varying lifestyles and nutritional needs, according to a recent press release.

Kellogg�s Frosted Flakes and Froot Loops are both being offered now in 1/3 Less Sugar varieties. Both are trans fat free and contain no artificial sweeteners.

Kellogg�s All-Bran Bars have also been introduced, in Original and Honey-Nut flavours. Each 30 g pouch provides 4 g of fibre and 130 calories.

Special K CarbFit cereal is a trans-fat free version of the original, containing wheat bran, toasted soy and rice flakes. A � cup serving contains 5 g of dietary fibre, 9 g of protein and 110 calories. Following the lead of other carb-counting food companies, Special K CarbFit subtracts the fibre content from the total carbs to get a net carb count of 9 g.
