Eating cereal is one of the easiest ways to incorporate the recommended amount of fiber in your diet. Some of the cereals out there have a substantial amount of fiber, while making the serving size very reasonable. Fiber is known to have many health benefits, including aiding in weight loss, lowering bad LDL cholesterol levels, and constipation. Cereal is a very healthy choice for fiber and many other nutrients, as most cereals are enriched with plenty of vitamins. Here are some of the top cereals that contain the most fiber per serving…
Kellogg’s All-Bran Buds Cereal
This cereal has a whopping 13 grams of fiber in only 1/3 of a cup. With the daily requirement of 25-38 grams of fiber, just a small amount gets you almost half way there. All-Bran Buds are also low calorie, at only 80 calories per serving. This cereal doesn’t come flavored, nor is it extremely tasty by itself. Although, if you are looking for a cereal to incorporate the most amount of fiber in your diet in a very small serving size, this cereal is an excellent choice. Since the cereal is made of small pellet like buds, it makes it very easy to mix it in a parfait. I have found that instead of eating the cereal with milk, that it is quite good to mix it with just a little bit of flavored coffee creamer, which basically infuses it with any flavor you want.
Fiber One Original Cereal
This cereal, no matter what flavor, always says it will contain at least 9 grams of fiber per serving. The original kind of Fiber One contains the most amount of fiber, at 14 grams of fiber for the ½ cup serving size. This cereal is a pretty tasty choice, while having a pretty substantial amount of fiber per serving. This cereal makes quite a few flavors, which are pretty low in calorie. The original Fiber One is only 60 calories per serving, while the chocolate and honey squares are only 80 calories per serving. This brand also makes Fiber One bars that contain around 9 grams of fiber in each bar, making it a really good choice if you are the go. Not to mention, they taste really good, so don’t eat too many!
Kashi GoLean Cereal
This cereal contains, depending on the flavor, typically around 10 grams of fiber for a serving size of ¾ of a cup of the cereal. Some of the flavors have a higher serving size of 1 cup of the cereal. This cereal is still a very good choice if you are looking for flavor and fiber in a cereal. This cereal is also low in fat and high in protein, which is a definite plus for any cereal.
Kellogg’s Raisin Bran
Another type of bran cereal that the majority of people have heard of is Raisin Bran. This cereal has 7 grams of fiber in 1 cup of the cereal. Kellogg’s makes a few different flavors of Raisin Bran, but the original does contain the most amount of fiber and is the healthiest out of all of the flavors available.
Post Shredded Wheat Cereal
Post Shredded wheat contains 6 grams of fiber for a serving size of 1 cup of the cereal. This brand also has a cereal called Shredded Wheat’n Bran, which contains 9 grams of fiber for a 1 ¼ cup of the cereal. This cereal is also known for being great for low sodium diets, as it contains 0 mg of sodium. This cereal makes for quite a heart healthy breakfast.
