I’ve often wondered why popular cereals have to be that sugary sweet. To me it’s almost nauseating. I’ve gone to things like corn flakes (that still may have some sugar but it isn’t “in your face” sweet).
Corn Flakes are just mashed up bits of gypsum like corn stuck together with a liquid sugar cement. Even if it isn’t in your face sweet its still mostly that liquified sugar. I used to eat lots of different types and most cereal flakes are created that way. These days I have switched to an old boy scout favourite up here in Canada called Red River cereal (not sure if it is available in the US or not) and it is very healthy with no sugar but I do add some maple syrup for flavour.
