No sugar, no salt, no preservatives, nothing added. Just hard, red spring wheat, oats, barley, rye, triticale (a hybrid of wheat and rye), soft white wheat and spelt. This cereal has been eaten by Montanans for over 100 years and it’s still roasted the same way. We love the real whole-grain flavor and nutrition in this cereal.
Whole grains contain three parts: the bran, the endosperm and the germ. The bran is the fiber-rich outer layer that contains B vitamins, minerals, protein and other phytochemicals. The endosperm is the middle layer that contains the carbohydrates, proteins. The germ is the nutrient packed inner layer that contains B vitamins, vitamin E and other phytochemicals. Food synergies are central to SuperFoodsRx nutrition science and it’s the synergy of these three components that makes whole grains so important to a healthful diet.
Cream of the West lists the serving size as 1/3 cup. We recommend increasing it to a ½ cup if this is all you’re having for breakfast. By doing this you’ll get almost 6 grams of fiber and over 7 grams of protein, which is an excellent way to start your day.
Most of our customers will eat this cereal hot, but we sometimes just let it soak a few minutes in our favorite non-fat milk and add berries or dried cranberries and cinnamon. If you cook it hot, add a tablespoon of your favorite nut butter. Now that’s a real SuperFoodsRx treat!
