    Default Kellogg’s Slammed over High Levels of Probable Carcinogen in Cereal

    Sustainable Pulse
    Aug 5 2015

    GMO Free USA published Tuesday the results of independent lab tests documenting that a box of Kellogg’s Kashi GoLean Original cereal, which had not been verified by the Non-GMO Project, contained high levels of the World’s most used herbicide glyphosate residue and an even higher level of AMPA (aminomethylphosphonic acid), a metabolite of glyphosate.

    Meanwhile, Kellogg also reported second-quarter revenue on Tuesday that revealed a 5.1 percent decline in sales, which was the seventh time in eight quarters that sales had fallen. Sales in the company’s U.S. snacks business, its biggest, fell 2 percent, while sales in the U.S. morning foods business, which includes cereals, fell 2.2 percent.

    It wasn't all that long ago, I thought products like Kashi (even without added sugar) were as good and pure as the wind driven snow. Now I know better, on at least 3 different levels; sugar, the non-need for grain, and of course the GMO issue.

    Want a good (hot) cereal, try ORGANIC, grain-like quinoa, technically a vegetable, not a grain. I emphasize "ORGANIC", not just for the usual health reasons, but more specifically some of the growing practices of quinoa have been compromised in some areas of Peru, not to mention adulterated packaging/marketing by GMA food marketers.

    There are plenty of alternatives. Flaxseed, homemade granola, cornmeal mush, grits, and good old-fashioned oatmeal, which can be served up in a dozen different delicious ways!
