Trans fat in a supposedly "healthy" cereal? Disgusting.
I wouldn't classify half a gram as "high in trans fat". That's about 1/900 of a lb, or a whopping 4 calories per serving out of 140.
In other words, it's got 10x as much fiber as transfat. Choose your poison.
BTW, that website from which you get your information considers "natural flavors" as a "controversial ingredient". In my world, that's a good sign that the tree huggers got some splinters in their burlap underwear.
Choose your poison is right. If i love oreos, and if oreos contain trans fat, then i will eat one cause i crave it, because there is no substitute for an oreo.
But why should I choose a breakfast cereal that contains trans fat, when there so many other healthful grain cereals to choose from, such as oatmeal? What ingredients the website itself classifies as "natural" is not relevant, as i am only discussing the nutrition label for this cereal that just happened to be found on this site. Facts are facts.
Also OP, i was not able to find a list of ingredients thus i do not know for a fact that this product has only three ingredients and one cannot assume that it only has the three grains advertised. The trans fat has got to be coming from somewhere.
If you choose to start the day with unnecessary trans fat in your cereal (no matter how "trivial") more power to you.
