, just this week I discovered a new-to-me cereal. Barbara's High Fiber. Not the most creative name, but it delivers what it promises. It has a bit more sugar than you're looking for, but at 8g/cup, it's not outrageous. Some other nutri-facts: 1 cup serving has 180 calories, 140mg sodium, 180 potassium, 8g sugar, 5g protein and, get this, a whopping 14g fiber. Yep, not a typo -- 14!
It contains a mix of fiber-rich ingredients, including Whole Wheat, Rolled Whole Oats, Wheat Bran, Corn Meal, Oat Hull Fiber (more on that in a minute), Corn Bran and Oat Bran as well as other, all-natural ingredients (sugars, salts, etc). You can see and identify many of the ingredients, which I think is a good thing. Best of all, it's actually tasty (you know and I know, not all better-for-you foods can claim such).
Funny tidbit regarding the Oat Hull Fiber: I bought the cereal at my local grocer but was too lazy to go downstairs and get the box in order to quote the nutrition info for this post. Instead, I looked it up on Amazon. Amazon lists the ingredients and this one popped out at me -- Oat HELL Fiber. That gave me a chuckle (hope that didn't get Fitday censored...)
Anyway, thought I'd mention Barbara's, if you're looking for something new to try!
