Uncle Sam Original Whole Wheat & Flaxseed Cereal - 10oz.
DescriptionHeart Healthy Cereals High in Fiber
Toasted whole wheat flakes combined with whole flaxseeds for a low glycemic, heart healthy cereal high in fiber. A flaxseed cereal made from a simple, tried-and-true recipe.
We steam hard red winter wheat berries from the American heartland with a touch of barley malt and salt to enhance the natural flavor of the whole grain. Then we roll them flat and toast them into flakes. Lastly, we add heart-healthy flaxseeds for a hearty cereal. And that's it.
Our traditional method preserves the nutritional value, shape and flavor of the whole grains, and naturally keeps the cereals high in fiber. Each serving has 10 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein to help promote all-day energy. With less than 1 gram of sugar, you get to decide how sweet you want it.
Enjoy this whole wheat and flaxseed cereal by the bowl, sprinkled over yogurt or as an added crunch in salads and soups.
Also available in new 13oz. value size.
IngredientsWhole wheat kernels, whole flaxseed, salt, barley malt.
Made in a peanut-free, dairy-free facility.

The F-Factor Diet authored by Tanya Zuckerbrot MS, RD is an innovative nutrition program which has helped thousands of people lose weight and feel their very best. Instead of focusing on certain items to eliminate in the diet, Tanya's program emphasizes the addition of high fiber foods to a well-rounded meal plan. Fiber is not only beneficial for weight loss as it keeps you fuller on fewer calories, but consuming adequate fiber also has benefits for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, digestive disorders, and can help prevent certain cancers. The F-Factor Diet is based on scientific principles which do not change with the diet tides. The program is a lifestyle change and a long term solution because incorporating adequate fiber in your diet, like that in Uncle Sam® products, eliminates feelings of hunger and deprivation associated with many other weight loss plans and their subsequent discontinuation.

Tanya also founded www.SkinnyAndTheCity.com, a nationwide newsletter and website. Written by experts in the nutrition and fashion fields, Skinny and the City aims to provide free advice for women to look and feel their very best.
When professional athlete-turned-firefighter Rip Esselstyn learned that some of his fellow Engine 2 firefighters in Austin, TX, were in dire physical condition - several had dangerously high cholesterol levels - he created a life-saving plan for the firehouse. By following Rip's program, everyone lost weight, lowered their cholesterol, and improved their overall health. Now, Rip outlines his proven plan in his book, The Engine 2 Diet. His plant-powered eating plan is based on a diet of whole foods, including vegetables, whole grains, fruit, legumes, seeds and nuts. He uses Uncle Sam Cereal in his recipe ‘Rips Big Bowl’ which he says has been his “mainstay breakfast for more than twenty years.”
