Kellogg has announced plans to extend its Eggo range in the US with Eggo FiberPlus Waffles.

The manufacturer said today (13 April) that Eggo FiberPlus Waffles will be sold in two varieties – buttermilk and chocolate chip. The manufacturer added that the range contains some 35% of the daily recommended amount of fibre in each serving.

The buttermilk variety contains 35% of the recommended daily value of calcium, while the chocolate chip variety provides 20% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin E and zinc.

Kellogg said that both varieties are a “good source” of 10 or more vitamins and minerals.

“Eggo FiberPlus Waffles offer a simply delicious taste that consumers have come to expect from Eggo,” said Cathy Schneck, VP of marketing for Kellogg’s frozen foods business. “Now they also provide the added nutrition benefits of fibre and either the antioxidants vitamin E and zinc or calcium.”
