High Fiber Cereal, The Advantages

Some people really dislike eating high fiber cereal. In the past many high fiber cereals had no flavor and were often describes as eating chopped up cardboard. However, many studies have proven the health benefits of a high fiber diet.

With these studies at the forefront of the health food industry, other cereal producers have gone to great lengths to join in the production of whole grain, high fiber cereals. It was a very good development because now everyone can find a healthy cereal that fits their taste buds. The highest fiber cereals still have some taste issues but there are many cereals with adequately high fiber that have great taste.

The most fiber can be found in the bran type cereals. Cereals such as Fiber One, All Bran, and 100% Bran are some of the highest in fiber. For those who prefer a better taste, there are lower, but adequate, fiber products such as Kashi, Raisin Bran, and Grape Nuts. The best way to compare products and find the best fiber is to read the product labels.

It's always a good idea to compare a product with one of the heavy fiber products. That way you know how much real fiber it contains. Not all high fiber products are alike, even though the pictures on the box might give the impression of high fiber content. The only test is in product label comparisons.

If a person can not find a high fiber cereal that they really like there are ways to take any cereal of choice and make it higher in fiber. You simply mix different cereals. Using a plastic cereal container, cereals such as frosted flakes and fruit loops can be mixed with one of the whole grain high fiber cereals. Adding nuts and dried fruit is another way of adding taste to an otherwise dull cereal.

It's important to not only eat for health, but also eat for enjoyment. Fiber is present in many dried fruits, such as raisins and prunes. Nuts also will increase the fiber in the cereal mix. With a little creativity you can enjoy a very healthy and tasty breakfast.
