Some years ago I made significant dietary changes. One of those changes was to stop eating heavily refined grains, which lead to me finding Kashi. Cereal is a staple breakfast food in my diet so finding a cereal that was not sugar laden and refined was critical. Kashi offers various products including cereal, breakfast bars, and crackers that typically are high in whole grains. I have been eating their cereals for years and recently tried their Organic Promise Cinnamon Harvest, which I found in a local grocer.
This product can be considered a healthier, organic alternative to shredded wheat cereals. This product is USDA certified organic and Non-GMO Project verified. The cereal is very high in whole grains, so if you have a gluten allergy this cereal is not for you. The high whole grain content makes this product very filling, satisfying, and energizing, providing a great start to the day.
As the name suggests, this product has a strong, but tolerable, flavor of cinnamon which is accompanied by a subtle sweetness. Accompanied with either soy or almond milk, this product retains its flavor, as opposed to becoming bland and ‘soggy.’
This product is very similar in texture to shredded wheat cereals. The subtle differences in this cereal and similar types is that the shreds of each biscuit appear thinner. The biscuits absorb milk but do not immediately become soggy, maintaining some of its crunch.
Ingredients: Organic Whole Grain Wheat, Organic Dried Cane Syrup, Organic Cinnamon, Natural Cinnamon Flavors.
This product contains FOUR ingredients. Typically, the less ingredients the better the quality. One 55 gram serving of this product contains almost a full daily recommendation of whole grains (47 grams out of 48 grams), 6 grams of protein, 24 grams of dietary fiber, only 9 grams of sugar, 0 grams of cholesterol and sodium, and 1 gram of fat. The fact that this product is USDA organic is an added bonus.
Overall, this is a healthy, nutritional, and organic cereal that is a great start to the day. High in whole grains and fiber, it is also very flavorful, with cinnamon providing a spicy note to jump start your day.
