BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Granola for type A's

The Cook Right 4 Your Type book lists Granola as an avoid under cereals.  Looking at the individual ingredients, however, all of them seem to be neutral (oats, honey, etc.)

This is Nature's Path Granola cereal, so not a lot of junk in there.  Is there any reason why a type A shouldn't eat it?

Also, what about Cheerios?  They're made of oats also.

I stocked up on a bunch of the granola before I noticed this.  Is this just a typo?

As long as all of the ingredients are compliant, the "composite" product is acceptable.  The issue is that most ready-to-eat products have ingredients, additives, etc. that are avoid, which makes the whole item an avoid.

Even highly processed oats have so much of the original oat removed, or massaged, that it no longer resembles the form, fit, or function of "oat" in the final product such as Cheerios...  The final product may not contain lectins, but it may not contain enough "good" to be called "food" either.

Makes sense.  I kind of figured that with the Cheerios, but the granola seems relatively unprocessed and doesn't have a bunch of stuff that I can't pronounce in the ingredients.  Plus it tastes great.
Thanks for your help.

By the way - it also added to my confusion when Corn Flakes was listed as a neutral.  I was totally surprised to see that.  How much more processed can you get than that?

The more recent books have moved away from rating composite foods toward rating individual food items.

Ingredients in Kellogg's Corn Flake:

Milled corn, sugar, malt flavor, contains 2% or less of salt

Wow - didn't actually have a box here - never would've guessed that it didn't have a bunch of preservatives and stuff.
