Uncle Sam Cereal Review & {GIVEAWAY!!}

What better time to start eating healthy with your kids then during back-to-school season? Uncle Sam Cereal is a great high in fiber choice, which can help in weight loss. With so much concern being placed on weight control, Uncle Sam has provided a solution to start your day out right with a unique blend of wheat flakes and flaxseed. I am usually totally turned off by the flavor and texture of fiber cereals, but this choice was pretty tasty. I had the original so I can imagine the ones with added fruit are delicious. Check out some of the benefits of eating Uncle Sam Cereal:

100% Whole Grain – The “rolled berry” flakes in Uncle Sam Cereal preserve the natural fiber, nutritional value and flavor of the wheat, making every flake of Uncle Sam Cereal a true whole grain. Whole grains are a rich source of several vitamins and minerals, including antioxidants and phytochemicals, which may reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and the effects of aging.

Omega-3’s from Flaxseed – Nearly all of the fat in Uncle Sam Cereal is heart-healthy fat from flaxseed, which is one of the best sources of plant omega-3 “essential” fatty acids that cannot be made by the body. Flaxseed also contains lignans, plant compounds that influence human metabolism. Omega-3 and lignans may help reduce the risk of some cancers, heart disease and inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis.

High Fiber – A single serving of Uncle Sam Cereal contains a whopping 10 grams of dietary fiber (8 grams insoluble, 2 grams soluble). Fiber helps maintain blood sugar levels, which is important for those trying to lose or maintain weight and improve energy. It also may help reduce the risk of diabetes, aid in lowering cholesterol andpromote regularity.

Less than 1 g Sugars (per serving) – Uncle Sam Cereal uses only a touch of barley malt to enhance the natural sweetness of the wheat flakes. Unlike other high-fiber cereals, it contains no cane sugar, no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial or synthetic sweeteners.
