The idea Of corn flakes
The idea of cornflakes began with a coincidence when John Kellogg and his brother Will Keith Kellogg left some ground wheat and went to the sanatorium.
When they returned, finding the wheat had faded, they continued to process it by forcing it onto the rollers, hoping to get a tall cube of dough. To their surprise, what they found instead was potato chips, which they roasted and served to their patients.
In 1906, Will Keith Kellogg decided to add sugar to the chips to make them more acceptable to customers, but this caused a rift between him and his brother.
