This is a Tasty Cereal from Kashi

4 Feb


I love this stuff — sweet, but not overly so.

Here are the rather wordy nutritional facts from Kashi:

The Seven Whole Grain Company. With more for your heart! Nothing artificial. Can Help: Reduce cholesterol – 1 g soluble fiber from oats. Supports healthy arteries – 6 natural antioxidants, including green tea, white tea & grape seed. Promote healthy blood pressure – low sodium. Meets American Heart Association food criteria for saturated fat and cholesterol for healthy people over age 2. More for your heart: At Kashi, we’re concerned that coronary heart disease takes so many lives each year in the U.S. and we wanted to do something about it. That’s why we created Heart to Heart cereal with more heart healthy ingredients. It makes taking care of your heart easy and enjoyable! Helps reduce cholesterol: Since high cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease, each serving of Heart to Heart has 1 g of soluble fiber that combines with water during digestion to help remove cholesterol. In a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, 3 grams of soluble fiber daily from whole grain oat foods may reduce the risk of heart disease. Helps support healthy arteries: Arteries are your body’s supply lines. That’s why we added nutrients to help keep your arteries healthy. Heart to Heart is an excellent source of Vitamins E, C and beta carotene. And, with 25 mg of grape seed extract, you’re getting the antioxidant benefits of eating nearly a pound of grapes! Extracts from green tea (100 mg) and white tea (50 mg), rich in polyphenols, are also potent antioxidants. Plus you’ll get 100% DV for heart healthy vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid. Helps promote healthy blood pressure: High blood pressure is another major risk factor for heart disease. Sodium is important to the body, but a high sodium diet is associated with hypertension. Heart to Heart is low in sodium and may reduce the risk of high blood pressure as part of a low sodium diet. our heart’s desire: At Kashi, The Seven Whole Grain Company, we believe everyone has the power to make positive, healthy lifestyle changes. So for 20 years it’s been our mission to provide great tasting, all natural whole grain foods to help you live longer and live well. With Kashi Heart to Heart Oat Flakes & Wild Blueberry Clusters, you’ll have the taste and nutrition your heart desires so you can enjoy doing more for your heart! We baked up a delicious combination of crispy flakes made from whole grain oats and our unique blend of Seven Whole Grains & Sesame, plus crunchy oat clusters with sun-sweetened wild blueberries. Tasty and healthy, wild blueberries are nature’s No. 1 antioxidant fruit. They deliver the highest level of antioxidants per serving compared with more than 20 other fruits, including cultivated blueberries. With more for your heart: Although we made Heart to Heart with cholesterol-reducing soluble oat fiber, we didn’t stop there. We added more heart healthy ingredients to help promote healthy arteries and healthy blood pressure. Exchange: 3 Carbohydrates.
