From Kashi To Good Friends Seven Whole Grains & Sesame cold cereal is a happy antidote to the fiber deficit. It's a mix of tastes and textures--flakes, twigs, and granola--made from whole oats, brown rice, rye, red winter wheat, triticale, buckwheat, barley, and sesame seeds. One spoonful of this pleasantly crunchy jumble and you'll want another.
It's flavored with just enough cane juice, honey, and fruit juice concentrate to give it a tad over one teaspoon of sugar per serving, the same as a bowl of Post Bran Flakes. It's also low in sodium and virtually fat-free.
Unlike most breakfast cereals, Kashi isn't fortified. But its whole grains should supply what's milled out at the refinery: vitamins E and B-6, magnesium, zinc, copper, and precious phytochemicals that may cut your risk of cancer and heart disease.
With eight grams of fiber in each 3/4-cup serving, Kashi beats Quaker Oat Bran (six grams), and it's within striking distance of Kellogg's Ali-Bran (10 grams) or Ali-Bran Extra Fiber (13 grams).
So slice in some bananas or berries and dig in. Whole grains never tasted so good.
