Cereals are the finished products that are processed from grains such as maize, wheat, rice, oats and rye. Cereals come in all sizes, shapes, colors and flavors. Strong associations between the consumer's judgment of a product's color and its taste are learned through experience, and cereal producers around the world understand the importance of color consistency of their cereal products. In many cases the color of cereals is measured to ensure batch-to-batch consistency to exacting color standards.
