What is Cereal made from?

Typically, the basic ingredient in cereal is a grain such as wheat, barley, corn, oat, or rice. What else it is mixed with and how these basic ingredients are processed varies from cereal to cereal! The process could include grinding, toasting, or puffing. It could also include adding in vitamins, minerals, flavors or fruit, nut, and chocolate pieces. The options are endless...

Therefore, while many types of cereal are gluten-free, many contain wheat. So, if you are a gluten-free dieter, always double-check the label before chomping down… (or check out the gluten-free selection of cereals available on PlantX where we have done all that pesky label checking for you!)

How do I pick a healthy cereal?

There is no one definition of 'healthy' so there is no one answer. However, many cereal brands are packed with sugar, fat and salt. Too much of these cereals could lead to health problems such as tooth decay or high blood pressure. So, if you are looking for a healthy cereal, you need to be a little careful with your choice.

The trick is to choose a cereal that contains whole grains and is low in sugar, salt, and fat. Wholegrain cereals are high in fiber which keeps your digestive system in check. Research also suggests that fiber-rich diets can help reduce the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Whole grains also contain B vitamins and other nutrients that benefit our health.

Muesli is often seen as a healthy breakfast cereal, particularly as it also often contains fruit and nuts. However many muesli brands contain a lot of added salt and sugar, which, when consumed at high levels, are not so good for our insides!

Our top tip? Look at the nutrition label before you grab a cereal to make sure the ingredients contain what you are looking for.

What country does cereal come from?

While the roots of cereal are contested, the ancient home of wheat and barley is believed to be the Levant. This is a geographical region of the Middle East. Evidence of processing these grains to make cereal can be first traced back to around nine thousand years ago in Syria.

What vegan milk should I put in my cereal?

Now, this is a tricky question to answer. What milk you choose to splash over your cereal depends on what kind of taste experience you are searching for.

Oat milk has a luscious creamy taste which is perfect for mixing with cereal. Oat milk also contains added fiber which makes it a particularly filling partner to add to your breakfast bowl. Hazelnut milk has a particularly nutty taste compared to other nut milk. This makes it the perfect cereal addition for any nut lovers. It is also full of fiber and vitamin E, making it another great milk to start your day with. Soy milk has a sweet taste so is ideal for those with a sweet tooth. Almond milk is crisp and whole, leaving your cereal tasting as good as it went in. And, coconut milk livens up any cereal with a slightly tropical taste.

It’s all about personal preference. We suggest having a browse through the vegan milks available at PlantX - there's bound to be something that tickles your fancy in no time!

Do you pour cereal then milk or milk then cereal?

The age-old milk or cereal first debate. Some people argue you must pour the milk first to get the perfect milk-to-cereal ratio. This technique is said to save you from the pesky pool of milk left in the bowl after you have devoured the crunchy cereal pieces. However, many others believe that milk first should be a crime. What about splashback? What if you pour the milk and there is not enough cereal to fill the bowl? And honestly, doesn’t milk first just feel wrong?

Here at PlantX, we believe in freedom of choice. As long as you are using vegan milk we won’t tell you what to do. Enjoy your cereal how you like. You do you.

Cereal for dinner?! It's time to break the rules ...

Cereal is traditionally enjoyed at breakfast. A crunchy bowl served with milk and coffee. It's an easy and tasty way to wake you up and get you ready to take on the day ahead. But, here at PlantX, we see cereal as more than breakfast food. We think it's time to break the rules.

Imagine cereal as a midday snack... Rushing between jobs, not quite enough time to pull the ingredients out of the fridge for a sandwich? Sounds like the perfect time to grab a tasty bowl of cereal. Why not let cereal be your sweet treat at the end of a long day? We think a bowl of vegan coco pops with some vegan chocolate milk could give a chocolatey brownie a real run for its money. And who says you can’t whip our cereal at a dinner party? Cereals awaken the child in us. We bet our bottom dollar the cereal aisle was one of your favorites as a child. So, why not mix it up and get your friends round for a cereal swap and taste session? Sounds fun to us.

Something so good should not be constrained to only one time of day, we simply won't have it. At PlantX we are backing the cereal-at-any-time-of-day revolution. Let any hour be a cereal celebration!
