good overall ingredients, very poor proportions
Nature’s Path describes this as “…cereal of flax, corn and amaranth.” Now look at the ingredients which, of course, are listed from most to least. The first 2 are cornmeal and corn flour–hardly the most nutritious of grains. Third is organic evaporated cane juice yielding 4 grams of sugar per serving, and then come the flax, buckwheat, quinoa and amaranth.
JUST HOW MUCH OF THESE SUPER GRAINS CAN POSSIBLY BE INCLUDED if the 3rd highest ingredient is the sugar at 4 grams?!
And that’s another pet peeve: why any added sugar at all. Most health-conscious consumers do not want added sugars, even cane juice. And this also leads me to question the “nutrition facts” posted on the products. If cane juice is the 3rd item in quantity, and corn has a relatively high sugar content, can there really be only 4 grams of sugar per serving?
Best Gluten free cereal so far
Nature Path Organic Mesa Sunrise Cereal
what a great way of beginning my days. thank you !
Grains from the Land of Enchantment
outstanding product overall
i love that I can fill up a big bowl without consuming tons of calories (I’m a volume eater!)
it has a light sweetness that makes it tasty to snack on plain, and mixed with nuts and dried fruit for a snack to go.
and of course its great with milk, yogurt, and mixed into smoothies. I highly recommend this cereal, its the best gluten free cereal I have tried, and I’ve tried lots!
