When was Breakfast Cereal invented?
In the year 1863, James Caleb Jackson who was a strict vegetarian and operator of the Jackson Sanitorium invented the first packaged breakfast cereal named Granula in Dansville, New York in the United States but it was not popular.
A biscuit was made from cornmeal, ground-up wheat and oat by an operator of the Battle Creek Sanitarium, Harvey Kellogg in the year 1877 in Battle Creek in Michigan. It was called “Granula” initially but after a law suit its name was changed to “Granola”. Corn Flakes were later invented by Will Keith Kellogg and in 1906, the Kellogg Company was found by him.
