7 High-Fiber Cereals that Actually Taste Good

By , SparkPeople Blogger
The high fiber cereals of years ago offered little taste for the nutritional benefit they provided. Today, that has changed and you can get a great tasting cereal that is also a good fiber source.

Fiber is an important part of a healthy diet. Not only does it aid in weight loss by helping you feel full and satisfied longer, it also helps reduce risks of heart disease, lowers blood pressure, and aids in blood sugar control. Many people need more fiber in their diet and breakfast cereal provides a great option for maximizing your daily intake by getting the day started with a fiber rich meal.

Consumer Reports tested eighteen high-fiber cereals which each contained 25 to 50 percent of the recommended dietary guidelines for fiber (based on a 2,000-calorie diet). Here are seven top tasting high fiber cereals that you may want to include in your breakfast meal planning to help you meet your daily fiber intake requirements.

  1. Kirkland Signature Spiced Pecan – This cereal is sold at Kashi GoLean Crunchy Fiber Twigs, Soy Protein Grahams and Honey Puffs – This cereal is a top rated nutritional value for price cereal offering 10 grams of fiber in a serving size slightly larger than the Kirkland cereal at a slightly lower price of $.13/serving.
     
  2. Archer Farms High Fiber – This cereal is sold at Target and offers a sweet crunch with toasted grains and a cinnamon taste along with 10 grams of fiber/serving.
     
  3. Kellogg's Raisin Bran Extra! – Offering 7 grams of fiber/servings, this cereal provides a balance of sweet and crunch from tender raisins and cranberries along with nutty wheat flakes and clusters.
     
  4. Post Shredded Wheat Spoon Size Wheat 'n Bran – Offers 8 grams of fiber/serving in a nutty grain cereal with unsweetened toasted wheat.
     
  5. Great Value Raisin Bran – This cereal is sold at Walmart and great for those that like the plain raisin bran they have always known and loved.
     
  6. Barbara's Bakery Ultimate Organic – This cereal provides an organic option which rated well for nutrition and taste.


Have you tried any of the cereals and if you have, which one is your personal favorite? If you have not, will you give one of them a try now – why or why not?

I didn't see a date on this article, but at least some of these links are dead. I like cereal and it's good for dinner if I'm in a hurry. I like Raisin Bran and also spoon size shredded wheat. The latter is also good for a snack and I buy generic brands to save money too! Report

Plain bran flakes are my "go-to" (Kellog's) if I'm having cold cereal. I've occasionally checked out cereals similar to some listed like the Kashi and the sugar content is higher than what I want to have. Oatmeal is my winter "go-to" and I may just switch that to overnight oats when the weather is warm again. Report

For some reason, when I eat cereal, I feel hungry halfway through the morning. I'm a teacher and on the go. I like Nature Valley Sweet and Salty bars. I have one for breakfast and one for snack time. I would never be able to eat raisin bran though. When I look at it, it looks like dead flies floating in my cereal bowl. Report

I never got into cereal even as a kid since milk bothered me after they started homogenizing it, I do eat oatmeal or cream of wheat, but anything else is never in the house.

I typically do really well on my daily fiber intake. I have not tried any of the above, but my immediate concern is sugar content. Sadly, so many cereals have far too much added sugar. I will look at the labels for these next time I'm out, but if Sugars are above 5g, I'm not willing to eat it. Report

Most of the "healthy" fiber or gluten free cereals have a large degree of sugars. As a diabetic I choose those with 5g or less per serving, then have to add the sugars in 2% milk. There aren't alot of sugar-free or low sugar options out there. Corn Chex comes in at 4g, although I love the Wheat Chex I rarely get them s they have more sugar, Puffed Wheat, Market Basket Toasted O's and Most store brand Rice Krispies are 5 or lower. Report
