You can click here to see the nutrition facts panel and more information about original Cheerios® cereal. Here's a longer explanation:
Cheerios cereal has essential vitamins and minerals, is low in fat and is made with whole grain. All Cheerios varieties have at least 14 grams of whole grain per serving; original Cheerios has at least 23 (at least 48 grams are recommended daily).
Original Cheerios cereal and Honey Nut Cheerios contain soluble fiber from whole grain oats, which can help lower cholesterol. Soluble fiber acts like a kind of "sponge" to soak up some of the cholesterol in the body so the body can get rid of it naturally. Lowering cholesterol can lower the risk of clogged arteries and heart disease. Additionally, original Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios are naturally cholesterol free.
Cheerios isn't just a "health food" though. Ingredients like toasted oats are also part of the secret behind that classic flavor that makes people happy, and happiness is important too.
There are differences in nutrition profiles across the Cheerios varieties. You can visit their individual product pages for more detail.
3 grams of soluble fiber daily from whole grain oat foods, like Cheerios® cereal, in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Cheerios cereal provides 1 gram per serving.
