In 1908, a physician recommended that Uncle Sam cereal 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.
