Taste-Tested and Diabetes-Friendly

Good article on Breakfast Cereal from www.diabeticlivingonline.com. You can read all the results by clicking the link at the bottom of the post.

With options ranging from colorful sugar bombs to bland fiber buds, cold cereal choices may seem either tasty-but-bad-for-you or boring-but-healthful. We’re here to show you there’s a happy medium for your breakfast bowl!

Through a series of dietitian approvals for nutritional requirements and taste tests with more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, we narrowed 70 qualifying cereals down to six winners and 12 tasty finalists. These “best of the bowl” cereals were awarded our Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval. Pour one to taste how yummy healthful options can be!

Nutritional Guidelines

Every cereal tested had to meet these health requirements per serving (without milk):

— 150 calories or less

— Less than 30 percent of calories from fat

— 1 g saturated fat or less

— 0 g trans fat

— 30 g carb or less

— Less than 8 g sugars

— At least 3 g fiber

Flavored Flakes Finalists

After analyzing the nutrition content of hundreds of cereals, we were surprised to find some brands that were previously thought to be too high in sugar and calories that actually qualified for our taste test. Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes was one such example. Its new formula for a reduced-sugar cereal with added fiber makes it one of several healthful options.

Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes with Fiber, Less Sugar

Per serving (3/4 cup): 110 cal., 0 g total fat, 0 mg chol., 160 mg sodium, 26 g carb. (3 g fiber, 8 g sugars), 2 g pro.

Kellogg’s Special K Cinnamon Pecan

Per serving (3/4 cup): 120 cal., 2 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 0 mg chol., 180 mg sodium, 24 g carb. (3 g fiber, 7 g sugars), 2 g pro.
