Many Muesli Cereal Brands Found To Be Not All That Healthy

August 7, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A New Zealand consumer magazine that tested more than six dozen muesli breakfast cereals has come up with some discouraging results. Of the 75 brands tested, only 12 had low levels of fat, sugar and salt. One brand contained about the same level of fat and salt as corn chips, and more than four times the sugar. Some brands had as much as 15 grams of sugar per 100 grams of cereal, often “disguised” as honey, golden syrup, maple syrup or glucose. The CEO of Consumer New Zealand said the results convinced her organization: it no longer recommends muesli as a healthy breakfast option.
