Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it would make sense to be very deliberate when choosing what to have each morning. Many of the healthiest options available, such as cereal and oatmeal, have a startling statistic that the vast majority of consumers are completely unaware of: the percentage of calories that come from sugar. Many of the seemingly ‘healthiest’ breakfast options out there have about one third of all calories coming from sugar! This is just another factor that makes Vi Crunch a true ‘super cereal’- Vi Crunch only has 7% of calories coming from sugar!
How much of a difference are we talking about? Anywhere from 20-35% more calories come from sugar in competitors breakfast offerings than what ViSalus’ Vi Crunch contains. Why is this so important? Sugar is considered a simple carbohydrate that has no nutritional value and you want as few of your calories to come from sugar as possible.
For example, when someone mentions the cereal Raisin Bran it is often associated with eating healthy. While Raisin Bran does have some healthy attributes, you may be surprised to find out that over 42% of its’ calories come from sugar! To put that in perspective, only 7% of calories in Vi Crunch come from sugar! That’s a 35% difference!
Raisin Bran is far from the only offender- below are a few other examples of cereals (and oatmeal) that have a high percentage of calories coming from sugar. The scariest aspect is that most of these products are portrayed as very healthy!
ViSalus Vi Crunch- 7%
General Mills Honey Nut Clusters- 30%
General Mills Raisin Bran- 42%
Kellogg’s Craklin Oat Bran- 30%
Kellogg’s Low Fat Granola with Raisins- 29%
Kellogg’s Raisin Bran Crunch- 40%
Quaker Instant Oatmeal- 30%
Kellogg’s Muselix- 28%
Many of the breakfast options mentioned above have healthy qualities to them, but Vi Crunch clearly is in a league of its own. Also remember that this statistic doesn’t take into account the fact that Vi Crunch has more protein, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, etc. then most, if not all, cereals and general breakfast options out there!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you should treat it like that- far too often people say that but don’t act upon it. It’s time to practice what you preach!
ViSalus has sought out to not only revolutionize the cereal industry, but the breakfast industry as a whole. The combination of convenience, great taste and unmatched nutritional value makes Vi Crunch a truly fantastic option when striving to eat a healthy breakfast.
