Post Consumer Brands GRAPE NUTS

The nutritious cereal that’s perfect for lunch, dinner and snacks


Grape-Nuts actually contains neither grapes nor nuts. It’s made from wheat and barley. So, why is it called Grape-Nuts? As with many great emblems in history, there are two versions of the story. One says that Mr. Post believed glucose, which he called “grape sugar,” formed during the baking process. This, combined with the nutty flavor of the cereal, is said to have inspired its name. Another explanation claims that the cereal got its name from its resemblance to grape seeds, or grape “nuts.”

Wherever the name came from, it doesn’t change the fact that Grape-Nuts is packed full of goodness. Made with wholesome ingredients and fortified with vitamins and minerals, a half-cup serving of Grape-Nuts Original cereal is an excellent source of fiber and provides 100% of your daily recommended whole grain*.


the Grape-Nuts Story:

a part of history

Whether you enjoy it at breakfast, snack time or any other time of day, Post Grape-Nuts cereal isn’t just a part of your healthy diet — it’s been a part of American history for more than 100 years. Developed by C.W. Post in 1897, Grape-Nuts is timeless and versatile. For generations, it has been a morning staple and a healthy (and surprising!) recipe ingredient, and it packs the nutritional power to meet the demands of today’s modern, active lifestyle.

In addition to being the first widespread product to use a coupon (Post’s penny-off coupon was a game-changer in the late 1890s), Grape-Nuts was there for several famous moments in world history.

baked for goodness

How do we pack all that goodness into those crunchy little nuggets? Originally, C. W. Post prepared a batter that came out of the oven as a rigid sheet. He then broke the sheet into pieces and ran them through a coffee grinder to produce the “nut”-sized nuggets.

Whether you’re pushing through a tough workout, or simply trying to create a wholesome and healthy lifestyle, the whole-grain goodness of Grape-Nuts packs the power to help you climb your personal mountain.
