Frosted Mini Wheats

I was visiting a friend’s house up in Minnesota (where I went to school!) and I was trying to find something low-sodium to eat (you know, to counteract all the delicious restaurant food we were eating.) I was pleasantly suprised to see that Frosted Mini Wheats contains a mere 5mg of sodium per serving!(OK, I’ll admit it, their website is kind of cute)

yum yum!

I love it when I find “regular” foods that are ALREADY low in sodium!  It inspired me to look at some other cereals and their sodium contents:

Frosted Mini Wheats: 5 mg per 59 g
Kashi Autumn Wheat Biscuits: 0 mg per 54 g
Cheerios: 190 mg per 28 g
Cracklin Oat Bran: 150 mg per 49 g
Kix: 210 mg per 30 g
Cocoa Puffs: 150 mg per 27 g
Rice Krispies: 220 mg per 33 g

Kind of a random selection, I know… I just wanted to illustrate the vast range of sodium within the breakfast cereal category. Obviously I went out and stocked up on Kashi Autumn Wheat and Frosted Mini Wheats! What’s your favorite cereal? Check its sodium content and leave it in the comments!

  1. My Kashi Go Lean Honey Almond Flax has 140 mg of sodium per 53 g cereal. Not too bad. It’s one of the only cereals that keeps me full bc it’s got twice the protein and fiber of regular cereals.

  2. i love frosted mini-wheats! addicted to it right now!
