Cereal Fiber: A Great Source of Fiber

Cereals are typically whole grain, low in fat and a great source of fiber. Fiber is very important to our diets and digestion. We can get great health benefits from cereal fiber.
From Consumer Reports:

Fiber-rich cereals have made progress on the road to tastiness. Fourteen years ago, Consumer Reports found that most high-fiber cereals “tasted more like straw than grain.” But in our latest tests of 26 cereals, most with at least 6 grams of fiber, more than two-thirds tasted very good or better. Our testers have advice on how to get the best for breakfast.
