Vegetable Oil   Image 8  Vegetable Oil

Arnott’s Wagon Wheels are made using certified sustainable palm oil from Malaysia. Arnott’s ANZ and our supplier are active members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).

All palm oil used in our vegetable oil blend is sourced from the Malaysian Peninsular, from land specifically used to produce palm oil. It is not an area experiencing deforestation and no orangutans are found wild on this Peninsular.



We proudly make our own marshmallow for Arnott’s Wagon Wheels at our bakery in South Australia. Marshmallow is made from ingredients including sugar syrup, water and gelatine. Our gelatine is sourced from Australian, New Zealand and South African beef.



We purchase our jam for our Arnott’s Wagon Wheels from a local supplier, who makes it in Australia from local and imported ingredients. Jam contains Gelling Agent E440 or pectin which is derived from fruit and Food Acid E334 or tartaric acid which is derived from grape must.


Ingredients for texture

Baking Soda or Raising Agent E500

When mixed with dough, baking powder allows our biscuits to rise and become light and crispy in texture when baked.

Emulsifiers: Soy Lecithin and E492

We use these to help blend ingredients together and form a smooth and even choc coating.

Lecithin, also known as E322 is a natural emulsifier derived  from non-GMO soy beans.

Sorbitan tristearate, also known as E492, is derived from sugar and oil.


Ingredients for Flavour


We use a combination of natural and artificial flavours for Arnott’s Wagon Wheels. In some cases, artificial flavours are better at carrying the characteristic flavour of the biscuit.

1-Natural flavours are extracted or derived from natural sources, such as plants, dairy and proteins.

2-Artificial flavours are made from highly purified organic chemicals carefully blended by expert flavourists.

Golden Syrup

We use golden syrup to give our Wagon Wheels their rich and sweet flavour and crunchy texture.  The golden syrup we use is a product of Australia.


Gives our Wagon Wheels a slight spiced flavour.

Ingredients for Colour

We use a combination of natural and artificial colours in our range.

Arnott’s Wagon WheelsOriginal contains an artificial colour E122, also known as Azorubine and a natural colour Caramel 150a which is derived from caramelised sugar.

Treats may be enjoyed in moderation as part of a well-balanced diet.


At Arnott’s, we are committed to ensuring the products made in our Australian bakeries do not contain genetically modified ingredients.

For example, we work with our suppliers to ensure all the canola oil, corn and wheat we buy comes from farms dedicated to growing non-genetically modified crops.


We use small amounts of alcohol based flavours like vanilla essence in Arnott’s Wagon Wheel.

While all the alcohol should evaporate during the baking and depositing process, there is a possibility that trace amounts could be present in some of our biscuits.


The tray we use is fully recyclable and we encourage you to please recycle after use.

The plastic wrapping we use is not suitable for household recycling bins. To recycle, we recommend using REDCycle collection bins at selected Coles and Woolworths stores.
