High Fiber Cereal

high fiber cereal

Fiber is an essential nutrient for digestion, bloating, constipation and other health concerns. While cereal provides some fiber in its entirety, cereal with added inulin (a type of chicory root or extract-derived fiber) can increase daily fiber consumption per serving - perfect if looking to limit added sweeteners!

Kashi GoLean Crunch cereal stands out as one of the finest high fiber options, boasting puffed whole grain wheat, brown rice, oats, barley, rye and buckwheat with no added sugar and boasting a satisfyingly nutty taste - an ideal morning breakfast combination that pairs perfectly with milk, yogurt or nondairy milk options. Furthermore, this cereal does not contain dairy, gluten, corn, wheat peanuts tree nuts soy sesame seeds and coconut; thus offering safe options for those with food sensitivities or sensitivities alike.

Barbara's Blended Fruit cereal, recommended by dietitians, offers six grams of dietary fiber per serving and 15% of the Daily Value for iron. Similar in texture to Captin Crunch but higher in fiber and lower calorie counts.

Qureshi advises those living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) to steer clear of high fiber cereals, as these typically contain ingredients like inulin or chicory root which contain high FODMAP levels and may aggravate symptoms associated with IBS. She suggests eating whole grain cereals made from rice, millet or buckwheat which contain natural sources of soluble fiber for better digestive health.
