In today’s health Bunker article we will cover healthy breakfast cereals. As a child, a teenager and an adult I ate boxes of Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes, Bran Flakes, Frosties, All-Bran, muesli, and Porridge Oats. These products are sold to us as ‘the healthiest way to start our day’.
But, what are they made of, and what are the ingredients in a box of Corn Flakes for example. How many grams of protein or added sugar and salt are in each serving size?
The global breakfast cereal market is huge. Expected to reach $55bn a year in sales by 2025. Can we expect to see a correlation in diabetes, metabolic disease, and obesity growth? Don’t forget cereals are highly processed foods, some serving over 20 grams of sugar per serving.
And honestly, who only has 30g of Frosties?
We will also show you the nutrients that these cereals are fortified with. Some will shock you all believe me. They also openly use Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in their products. Health Bunker will also show how much fibre per serving is really in your morning cereal.
Let’s dive straight into the different brands, ingredients and other items of interest.
