FuN FaCtS- Cereal Mistake

William “Will” Keith Kellogg did not set out to invent corn flakes. He was soaking wheat bran to make bread
dough in the health sanitarium he ran with his brother John Harvey Kellogg when he noticed that the finished dough was breaking into smaller pieces. He baked the pieces and served them. The crispy wheat “flakes” became a huge hit with the patients, who asked to have packets shipped to them at home after they were discharged. Soon Will discovered that corn made a lighter, tastier flake. He founded the world’s first
ready-to-eat-cereal company, the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flakes Company, now known, of course, as Kelloggs…. =)
