Is There a Very Low Carbohydrate Cereal?
Know your options
Q. Are there any very low carbohydrate cereals?
A: Technically, there's no such thing as a low-carbohydrate cereal because cereal is made from grains, and grains are mostly carbohydrates. Today, many cereals include soy for additional protein. That leaves you with three options:
Cereals that primarily consist of carbohydrates;
Cereals that have high carbohydrate content and include soy to increase protein;
Cereals that are primarily soy/protein-based.
Here's a comparison of carbohydrates in some common cereals (per serving):
Special K Protein Plus: 14 grams carbohydrates
All Bran Soy N' Fiber: 17 grams
All Bran High Fiber Cereal: 18.4 grams
Guardian: 20 grams
Nature's Path Heritage Flakes Cereal: 22 grams
Oatmeal: 27 grams
Go Lean: 30 grams

The glycemic index (GI) value is more important than the carbohydrate content. The GI determines how quickly carbohydrates absorb into your blood. Fiber and protein slows the rate of absorption, so either fiber-rich and/or protein-rich cereals are recommended over cereals with a high-GI, even if they are low-carbohydrate or high-protein.
Cereals having at least 8 grams of fiber will bind to fat and slow absorption of carbohydrates into the blood. You can raise the amount of fiber by adding a tablespoon of ground flax, Salba or Fiberrific (Fibersure) to your cereal. Increase protein with a scoop of protein powder, or increase both fiber and protein by adding nuts and/or seeds to your cereal.
Of the cereals tested, cereals with the lowest GIs include:
All Bran: GI 30 (the lowest)
All Bran Soy N' Fiber: GI 33
Guardian: GI 37
In any case, cereal should be eaten early in the day; not as a late-night snack.
