Have you ever learned a bit of information and then immediately wished you could “unlearn” it? Well, this is just such information, so I won’t blame you if you click away now!

Cereal has always been the Belle of the Ball when it comes to quick and easy breakfasts for busy families on the go. Revered for its high vitamin content and luring us in with healthy promises of “organic”, “high in fiber” and “fortified with iron”, these boxed breakfast cereals have been deceiving us for years.

The Trouble with Store-Bought Breakfast Cereals (Even Organic)

Truth be told, boxed breakfast cereals are one of the unhealthiest foods on the grocery store shelves! The so called “vitamins” they’ve been fortified with are synthetic, the grains used to make the cereals are usually sprayed with toxic chemicals (unless they’re organic, but that’s another issue), many are colored with artificial food dyes and contain more sugar in one serving than most should have in an entire day.

The worst part is that organic, whole-grain and low-sugar cereals are no better. Because organic cereals are typically made with whole grains, they contain more protein. This sounds good initially, but during the extrusion process (where grains are liquified using high heat and pressure, then formed into whatever flake, puff or shape desired), the high heat and pressure can cause the protein in the grain to become toxic and highly allergenic. So whole grains equal more protein, but more protein in this case can also equal a more toxic cereal.
