Many of them are like white bread...strip the nutrients out, then put them back in artificially.
The sugar content in some of the special K's aren't much different than that of some of the sugary kid's cereals too. Several months ago I compared one of the Special Ks with Lucky Charms, and they had eerily similar nutritional content... I ate Lucky Charms that morning.
