As I understand it (from my reading), Special K cereals and others like it are basically some over-processed grains sprayed with vitamins. It is a very expensive way to get vitamins, ounce for ounce. Better to eat whole grains in the least processed form possible and get the vitamins from other whole foods, with a supplement booster if you feel you need it.
When the latest health craze took hold the big cereal companies looked for a way to stay on top of the wave - Bingo! the Special K, Product 19, Cheerios Diet Plan! Eat two meals a day of Special K and loose 2 pounds when a week goes 'round!
