Thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding Quaker Instant
Oatmeal.

According to the Canadian Food and Drug Act and Regulations, we are not allowed to add riboflavin to breakfast cereals. If you have any further question regarding our products, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Huh? The Canadian Food and Drug Act has a regulation that forbids quaker oats from adding riboflavin to their cereals? Why? It’s non toxic!! Even in high doses. This doesn’t make any sense.

Let’s see if I can find out why…I’ll contact the Bureau of Food Regulatory, International & Interagency Affairs from Health Canada.

A similar story with Quaker Oats…

You read everywhere that all of the B vitamins should be taken together and that’s why they make B complex. I was looking at the box for Quaker Oats the other day and I noticed that it’s fortified with B vitamins but riboflavin is missing.

How does this make any sense? I check out their web site, click on the link that says “Contact Us” and I ask them that very question.
