After finishing up the box of Erewhon’s Buckwheat & Hemp cereal that I reviewed a few weeks ago, I was ready to move on to the second box that Attune Foods kindly sent me to try – Gluten-Free Crispy Brown Rice Cereal!
Like the buckwheat cereal, the Crispy Brown Rice is a very simple, healthy cereal that is minimally processed and only very lightly sweetened to keep the sugar content down.
My impression? I really like it! Wonderfully crispy and light. Not quite as healthy tasting as the other one – you could definitely get your kids to eat this one, no problem.
I’ve been on a total Greek yogurt kick lately, so I’ve been adding a portion to my yogurt and fruit as an afternoon snack. It gives it a nice texture and crunch, and I just love listening to the snap, crackle and pop!
Now, I know that Rice Krispies also offers a gluten-free brown rice version of their own. The nutrition facts are similar, but the ingredient list on the Erewhon cereal is definitely a lot more appealing.
BHT, long name butylated hydroxytoluene, is a chemical preservative that is used in quite a few foods but is also an antiviral medicine used to treat herpes. Yum. I’ll go for the Erewhon, thank you very much!
