Have you met the newest member of the Kashi brand Cereals? As I’m walking through Publix on Saturday, I was introduced to their newest product called Golden Delicious!
Once I returned home, I looked over the ingredient list to see what this product had to offer. The first ingredient was “Seven Grain Blend” which is made up of whole: oats, brown rice, red wheat, rye, triticale, barley, and buckwheat! Evaporated cane juice was within the top 5 ingredients which makes this the main sweetening agent. Although there are better substitutes, evaporated cane juice is a healthy alternative to refined sugar. Both sugar and evaporated cane juice are made from sugar cane, but evaporated cane juice does not undergo the same degree of processing that refined sugar does. Since the product has 5g of fiber per serving, it is considered a high fiber food. Per 1 ¼ cup servings, this cereal offers 48 grams of total whole grains. Once the fiber is subtracted the cereal offers 43 grams of net carbohydrates which would bring this cereal to a total exchange count of 3 carbohydrates! Since breakfast is where you need the most energy to kick start your morning, the amount is acceptable! This product has no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives.
I have to give this cereal an A for taste and texture. The tiny flakes have the ability to really soak up the milk but still keep a nice crunch. The flake and cluster combo provide a whole grain taste with a touch of honey and molasses. I believe this would be a great cereal for a family because the kids would love the sweetness! Let me know your thoughts when you try this cereal!!!
