The Kellogg's name is immediately associated with breakfast cereal and rightly so: with over a century of history behind it, the Michigan-based company has become synonymous with its main product in a way few companies have. But in Japan, a country where breakfast often means grilled fish and rice, Kellogg's has decided to move in a different direction and the Kellogg's Firm Grain Oatmeal is the proof that it can do it – and that the Japanese appreciate this more than Corn Flakes or Coco Pops!
The Kellogg's Firm Grain Oatmeal is marketed as a substitute for the standard glutinous gohan rice that is Japan's staple food. And for a good reason too, because one 30 g (1 oz) portion of it has 1.6 times more dietary fiber and 60% less carbohydrates than a 150 g (5 oz) serving of rice – and it's much easier to prepare too. So if the Japanese are willing to see this oatmeal as an alternative to their national food, perhaps you could as well: your gastrointestinal system will thank you for it!
