Special K Protein Plus Cereal
To boost stamina and focus throughout a challenging schedule, Special K Protein Plus cereal front-loads nutrition for the day with a generous dose of protein in a tasty, low-carb recipe. An extension of the classic Special K line, Protein Plus features the well-loved crunch and light sweetness of the original cereal, with the added benefits of 10 grams of protein and a mere 3 grams of fat per serving. A blend of wheat, soy, and rice flakes, the cereal delivers 5 grams of fiber per bowl and 45 percent of the recommended daily iron intake. Powerful fuel for the morning, Protein Plus also makes a yummy addition to fresh fruit or yogurt for a mid-day snack.
Stay Satisfied with Fiber
In addition to being tasty and convenient, Special K cereals are specially formulated to help you reach and maintain a healthy weight. Substantial helpings of fiber in each bite create a longer-lasting feeling of fullness and satisfaction. Fiber is also essential to overall dietary well-being and as part of daily intake offers numerous benefits.
- Fiber keeps the digestive system clean and functional.

That was nearly a year ago and this has been my "go to" cereal ever since. I think it tastes pretty good, so I advise that you decide for yourself on taste. It has a light and sweet cinnamon flavor, I love the added protein and it's very low in sugar (2 g's per .75 cup serving). The flakes are sturdy (great crunch) and dense - not airy at all - holds up well in skim milk or yogurt, but I typically eat it straight up - out of my handy measuring cup. I don't need to sweeten it at all and a serving size, or just over, leaves me satisfied (really hard to do) and a box seems to last me awhile - another huge plus. I even carry a bag as a snack - especially when I travel - so that I'm not tempted to make less healthy choices. While I can't give all the credit to Protein Plus, as part of an overall reduced calorie daily intake attempt, I've lost 20 lbs in the past year - and although near my goal - have no intention of taking this off my grocery list.
**Update 8.5.12** - the formula and stats have indeed changed, and significantly IMO. I am not thrilled and I wish they left well enough alone.Read more ›
Update: A good, less sugary low-carb, high-protein substitute for this cereal is Hi-Lo Low Carb Cereal by Organic Milling, which is also available on Amazon. Hi-Lo has 1/7 the sugar of the Special K, more protein and more fiber. And it tastes better.
Then they changed it to be sweeter and loaded up on more sugar and carbs. I complained to Kellogg and they replied that they did a taste test and found people wanted it to be sweeter. A TASTE TEST. On people that probably had no interest in its intended purpose to be a healthier option for people that actually need to watch their diets closely - they evidently didn't test for value when it came to its health benefits, they tested purely for flavor. Shouldn't this have been tested on people that WERE concerned with health...? It's that essentially the goal demographic? The general public has TONS of sugary cereals to choose from. Can't we just have ONE?
You've lost my business, Kellogg, as well as many others that follow a low-carb/keto diet. I was once recommending this cereal to everyone that was trying to be more healthy so they didn't have to give up all the types of food they love--those on Atkins, Protein Power, the huge following of low-carbers on reddit, to name a few. Now we're back to pretty much no cereal options once again.
After 7+ years of this being a staple in my diet I will no longer be purchasing this. Such a shame.
I am SO disappointed and I know others are, as well. So, I created a petition in the hope that if enough people sign they might eventually return the original formula.
That said, since I've found Hi-Lo cereal which is even better (carb, sugar, and fiber-wise) than the original formula of special k low carb I kind of don't care what Kellogg's does.
You took a product that had more protein than net carbs and had a great branny flavor and ruined it, Kellogg's.
Why would I buy this cereal anymore? I'll just stick to your other brand, kashi.
How stupid do you think the average cereal shopper is- "now tastes even better" - what garbage.
I could go on but I'll just stick to voting with my wallet.
