General Mills Switches to Whole Grain Cereal


In a nod to the studies against refined grains, General Mills has announced it will only make whole grain cereals in the future. Low carbers can rejoice!

Low carb diets have always promoted the eating of whole grains vs the fiber-less, nutrient-less refined grains that most of us have grown up with. While consumers of past centuries ate healthy breads and grains full of fiber and vitamins, our modern diet has created the refined grain - devoid of anything but starch. Modern eaters grow up with this "white bread" lifestyle and turn into blimps.

General Mills announced that it is going to completely revamp its entire cereal line - including Lucky Charms, Trix and other cereals - to include only whole grain components. This will help breakfast eaters get more fiber in their diet and less 'empty calories'.

Of course, those marshmallow goodies are still going to be in there, so this is only half the battle. If we could get cereal makers to use any sugar substitute in their products rather than pumping kids and adults full of sugar first thing in the morning, that would be great! But we have to take these changes step by step. For General Mills to put the time, effort and cash into this massive overhaul is certainly a good sign. And for the millions of obese people out there, it will be a welcome help to their quest for a healthier life.
