View Full Version : Grape Nuts

Gram for gram the nutritional stats are close to that of oatmeal.
Grape Nuts has a bit of sugar (I am assuming from the barley malting process?) but its only ingredients are; wheat flour, malted barley flour, salt, and dried yeast.
How does it compare to good ole oatmeal?
Always looking for palatable alternatives..

...Oh ...you mean the cereal. Well then, I guess it's an alright substitute for oatmeal.

Most Breakfast Cereals — To us, cold breakfast cereals, even many of the brands touted as "healthy," are pure physique killers. Cereal is breakfast candy, nothing more, nothing less. In fact, corn flakes have a GI rating even worse than white bread! And how about these cereals that give you "energy", like Grape Nuts? Yep, at 47 carbs per teeny tiny serving (and what bodybuilder would eat one serving anyway?), most people would be in an insulin-induced coma by lunch.

That last statement is a little overkill, but just like all foods, watch your intake.
Personally I stay way from them because of the sugar and salt. Why do cereal companies have to ruin a good thing?
