What is Vegan Cereal Made Of?

Vegan Cereal is typically made from grains. You can find vegan cereals that are made from wheat, oats, and barley. Vegan cereal brands also make cereals that are gluten-free - these can be made from rice and corn, for example. 

Most vegan cereal brands add a little sugar to enhance the flavours of the grains. Some classic cereals also contain nuts, seeds, and fruit for an extra boost of nutrition. Some cereals are highly processed and contain artificial colouring and flavouring, making them nutritionally a very poor breakfast or a snack. Choose vegan cereal for a nutritionally complete breakfast!

What Are The Benefits Of Vegan Cereal?

Vegan cereals are a great source of carbohydrates, which are needed to support the body with energy. Classic vegan cereal is often made with whole grain, which is high in fibre. Fibre is known to be great for digestion, gut health, and keeping hunger away for longer. 

Typically, plant-based cereal is also low in saturated fat, high in protein, and a good source of antioxidants and some minerals. The outer layer of grains (the “bran”) is considered to contain iron, copper, and zinc, for example. Many plant-based cereal brands also add vitamin B, which makes these plant-based cereal brands a great source of B vitamins.

Lastly, classic vegan cereal makes a great breakfast or a snack, especially when compared to other cereal options that are made with refined sugar and highly processed white flour.

Useful Tips For Vegan Cereals

To keep your plant-based cereal crunchy, dry and delicious, always store it in an airtight container. Keep this container in a cool, dry, and dark place. If your cereal contains chocolate, you can even consider storing it in the refrigerator. 

If you like your organic cereal with a twist or want to add even more nutrients to your breakfast, try mixing your cereal with berries or fruits. Strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, for example, make a delicious addition to cereal and they bring soft texture and vitamins.

You can also use your cereal in baking. Vegan cereals go perfectly with some cookie doughs or muffin batters. You could even make muesli bread. Cereal also brings delicious texture and nutrients to raw protein balls.

FAQ

What is the healthiest type of cereal to eat?

Look for a dairy-free cereal that has vegan, clean and organic ingredients. Whole Grain options that contain the bran of the grain, could guarantee vitamins, minerals, and fibre for your choice of cereal. Cereal that contains nuts and seeds is always a great option as well.

What ingredients should I avoid in cereal?

Most cereal contains a little sugar. This is due to the fact that most humans love sugar. It is, however, not a great ingredient to have in the morning. It can cause a crash of energy, is bad for your teeth and is very calorific.

If you are going to eat a sweetened cereal, try to make sure the sugar is not refined. Try to avoid cereal, especially with high fructose corn syrup. It is also smart to avoid cereal that contains artificial flavours and colours. 

Cereals that are sweetened with honey, artificial sweeteners, maple syrup etc are generally better options.

Is it OK to eat cereal every day?

Just like any other food, eating a balanced diet and not overly consuming anything is the key. Eating vegan cereal that is low in sugar and high in fibre, makes a great daily staple to a diet whether it is for breakfast or a snack.
