Great cereal, but it has its flaws
on June 5, 2012
this is a very delicious cereal. it was all the things they said it was, the two issues about it for me is that calorie/fat content. 260 cal./10 grams of fat per serving seems a bit high, even for a granola based cereal. and the next problem is the flaxseed, they didn't grind them. like many of you know, when you don't grind flaxseed, it will pass strait through your digestive system. now at first i thought, "well im eating the cereal, a good chewing should do the job just fine", but thats not the case. not to be gross, but i saw flaxseed in my stool, the seeds in whole. you probably only effectively breaking down about 2/5 of the seeds. so you're obviously not getting nearly as much nutritional value from it compared to if they would just pre-grind it.
but other than that its a great cereal, the taste is an unmistakable 10, nice fiber content and organic. i will still buy in the future, just not as often as i would've liked though
