BNI™ 129.23fb: Bran breakfast cereal (typical)

foodBNI™ 129.23fb: Brantastix, Hubbards, NZ, 2011.

'Brantastix' represents the prototypical (median) bran breakfast cereal, taken from a sample of 5 brands. The sample was collated as part of a research on the nutritional composition of breakfast cereals in New Zealand.

This prototype is more representative of those who buy a particular brand of bran, as well as of the overall 'universe' of brands. However, an average based on mean values for the aggregated sample (dietBNI) may be more representative of those who change brands often, as well as of the population, in general.
