Ingredient listings

he ingredients panel on-pack is where you can find a list of all the ingredients in an Arnott's product.

Australian and New Zealand food regulations require food manufacturers to list the ingredients in descending order by weight. That means the first ingredient is present in the greatest quantity, and the last ingredient is present in the smallest quantity.

Here's some information about some of the most common ingredients found in Arnott's products:

Nuts: Did you know we should be including lots of plant foods in our diets, such as nuts? That's because nuts are an excellent source of essential minerals like magnesium and selenium. Nuts are also high in antioxidant vitamin E. Try a serve of Arnott's Premier Choc Chip and Nut Cookies or Glengarry Macadamia.

Chocolate: Did you know new research has suggested that chocolate, in moderation, is actually good for you? Chocolate has mood boosting properties and contains naturally occurring antioxidants. Antioxidants protect our bodies from harmful substances that are believed to cause aging and other diseases. So go on, enjoy an occasional Tim Tam Dark Chocolate or Mint Slice!

Tomato powder: Did you know that tomato powder is a concentrated source of lycopene? Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants protect our bodies from harmful substances that are believed to cause aging and other diseases. Tomato powder is an ingredient of a whole range of Arnott's savoury snacks including Shapes BBQ and Samboy BBQ Blast.

Cheese: Did you know Arnott's Country Cheese biscuits contain almost 20% real cheddar cheese? A serving of four of these biscuits with cheese and tomato can contribute to your daily calcium needs. So can Cheezels, which are also made with real cheese.

Lecithin: Did you know that lecithin is an important ingredient in chocolate? Research has linked a component in lecithin, called choline, with protecting our heart and improving brain and liver function.

Fruit: Did you know we should eat two serves of fruit a day? One serve of Arnott’s Sultana Fruit Slice provides half your daily fruit needs, and as we know from the most recent National Nutrition Survey, in most cases, Australians aren’t consuming anywhere near their recommended daily intake of fruit.
