  • Details
  • Nutrition
Toasted whole-wheat flakes & flaxseed. 10 g fiber. Omega-3 fatty acids from flaxseed. Less than 1g sugar. 100% Whole grain. Whole Grains & Fiber: Just take a look at the flakes and you can see the shape of the original grain. Our traditional rolled berry method preserves the natural fiber, nutritional value, and flavor of the wheat making every flake in Uncle Sam cereal a true whole grain. Why choose whole grains? Whole grains are complex carbohydrates. This means they are the type of carbohydrate that is an excellent source of fiber. A single serving of Uncle Sam cereal provides 10 g of dietary fiber, including both soluble and insoluble fiber. Fiber helps maintain blood sugar levels which is important for those trying to lose or maintain weight and improve energy. It also helps to lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of diabetes, and promote regularity. Whole grains are rich sources of several vitamins and minerals including antioxidants and phytochemicals - all of which may help reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and the effects of aging. Flaxseed: Nearly all of the fat found in Uncle Sam cereal is heart healthy fat from flaxseed. Flaxseed is one of the best sources of plant omega-3 fatty acids - essential fatty acids that cannot be made by the body and must be provided by diet. Omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and inflammatory disorders as well as lower the risk of some cancers and aid in mental acuity and metabolism. The fat found in Uncle Same cereal is working hard to keep you healthy! In addition, flaxseed contains both soluble and insoluble fiber as well as lignans, plant chemicals which may help to reduce the risk of certain cancers. Low Sugar: A serving of Uncle Sam cereal has les than 1 g of sugar! We use just a touch of barley malt to enhance the natural flavor and sweetness of the whole grain. A diet low in added sugar is recommended for weight loss and maintenance, sustaining energy levels, and for people with diabetes. Low Glycemic: Uncle Sam cereal has been approved as low glycemic by the Glycemic Research Institute. This means it does not promote rapid spikes in blood sugar and insulin response and does not stimulate fat-storing enzymes. Weight Loss: Individuals controlling caloric intake to promote weight loss or weight maintenance can benefit from including Uncle Sam cereal at breakfast, as a topping for yogurt or cottage cheese, or sprinkled on salads because it packs a high amount of nutrients for very few calories. Also, the high fiber, low sugar ratio, in combination with the omega-3 fatty acids, makes it very satisfying. Low Sodium: One serving of Uncle Sam cereal has only 135mg of sodium, about the amount in a cup of milk, and only a small portion of the 2300 mg per day maximum recommended in the U.S. Dietary Guidelines. Preservative Free: Uncle Sam cereal is a natural food! We add no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, and no preservatives. Uncle Sam since 1908. Why Uncle Sam? It all started with a recommendation. In 1908, a physician recommended that our founder, Lafayette Coltrin, add flaxseed to his diet. Mr. Coltrin found that he enjoyed the flaxseed sprinkled on the whole-wheat flakes that he ate for breakfast. In fact, he liked the combination so much that he decided to package it. And, since he was so proud of his resemblance to our nation's Uncle Sam character, he named his new cereal Uncle Sam. For almost 100 years, the healthy nutritional profile of Uncle Sam cereal has caused it to be recommended not only by physicians, but also by dietitians, nutritionists, fitness experts and other healthcare professionals, as well as from friend to friend.
