#FirstImpressions Of The Crunchy Tropical Sunshine Granola By Cocosutra
The first thing we typically look for in breakfast cereals is how much sugar they have. This is because, despite all the health benefits of granolas and mueslis, it is the hidden sugars in these that usually tip the scales in the opposite direction. This pack of breakfast granola has 10.5 gm of Added Sugar, in addition to 8.5 gm of Natural Sugars, and yet it doesn’t taste very sweet. This is not necessarily a bad thing because you don’t want a sugary granola first thing in the morning.
Taste-wise: The granola is crunchy and so are the bits of almonds generously added. There is a slight aftertaste, especially contributed from flax seeds, which are also visible in fairly decent amounts throughout the mix. We didn’t enjoy the candied bits of Papaya much, though the chunks of Pineapple do work. The mix also contains Tocopherol – a natural preservative and source of Vitamin E – which keeps rancidity away and keeps the granola fresh.
What Is The Best Time To Eat Granola?
Since granola is quite rich not only in nutrients such as protein and fiber but also sugar, its consumption must be carefully managed. Listed below are some of the best occasions at which you can consume a bowlful of granola and maximize its beneficial capacities.
- First thing in the morning along with milk or yogurt.
- Before or after a workout, as it works as an energy booster.
