OATS V/S CORNFLAKES
1-When it comes to oatmeal and cereals let’s get one thing straight right off the bat—after all both pre-packaged oatmeal and boxed cereals come in thousands of different kinds, each with their own unique nutritional value.
Let’s cut to the chase, most of us already know that high-sugar cereals—your fruity loops, honey covered o’s, and cocoa-covered puffs (you know the ones, marketed at kids) are full of sugar. So here, I’m talking about cereals that are big on vitamins and minerals—not those jam-packed with chocolate, marshmallows, and food dyes.
2-Processed foods with more sugar content come under the category of high glycemic food, thus increasing the chances of diabetes. Unfortunately, the glycemic index of corn flakes is very high i.e. 82.
High glycemic index form of carbohydrate present in corn flakes produces high concentrations of blood glucose levels. This increases insulin demand and contributes to the high risk of type 2 diabetes.
3-If you really enjoy your breakfast cereal then we recommend you to switch to wheat flakes or oatmeal. You can improve the nutrient quality of your breakfast cereal with some low fat milk. Add a dose of vitamins, fibre and antioxidants with fruits like berries, apples or bananas. Protein rich foods are known to increase insulin secretion and your blood sugar will be normal. So, add some nuts for protein, healthy fats and fibre.
