Cream of the West’s Roasted 7-Grain hot cereal is made from hard red spring wheat, oats, barley, rye, triticale, soft white wheat and spelt. Nothing else is added. No sugar, no salt, no preservatives. Many cereals are called mutli-grain but most often they are made from refined grains which are not good for you. This cereal is the real thing. It’s all whole-grain and multi-grain and the package displays the 100% stamp of the Whole Grain Council.
We always recommend whole grains because they contain such a wide array of nutrients, including magnesium, zinc, iron, manganese, copper, phosphorus, an array of B vitamins, and hundreds of phytonutrients our bodies need. And this cereal contains such a variety of whole grains that you get all the synergistic benefits their nutrients have to offer.
Although the cereal is called “roasted” it tastes mildly toasted. Try soaking this cereal the night before. Just put the cereal and the water in a pan the night before and when you wake up, turn on the stove and in about 5 minutes you will have a hearty, creamy, hot cereal with 5 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein to keep you deliciously fueled.
