The Quaker Standard

2017 marks 140 years of The Quaker Oats Company. Our success and leadership follows a commitment to a level of excellence we call "The Quaker Standard", a practice that transcends our entire supply chain. This has led us to invest in world-class, industry-leading science, technology and talent. The result—an unsurpassed ability to transform the oat into products that allow people to benefit from their goodness. We work hard to advance the oat to its fullest potential so we can help people reach their fullest potential. Of course, we also take pride in making the best darn oatmeal every morning.

meet our super grain

A single “whole” grain contains all three parts of the grain kernel—the bran, endosperm and germ. Scientists believe that by eating whole grains intact—the fiber, vitamins and minerals within the grain work together—providing energy and nutrition to help you get the most from your day.


The heart of the grain and its source for new growth, the germ has nutrients like B vitamins and poly- and monounsaturated fats.


The largest portion of the kernel, the endosperm, contains carbohydrates for energy.


The Coarse outer layer of the kernel, the bran, is multi-layered and edible.


The fibrous protective cover surrounding the kernel, the hull is inedible, removed during milling and burned as fuel for the University of Iowa.
