BNI™ 121.81fb: Bran breakfast cereals (average)

dietBNI™ 121.81fb: Bran breakfast cereals (average), NZ, 2012.

This is the nutritional value of bran-based breakfast cereals (or supplements). Below is an analysis of the average aggregated nutritional value of a sample of 5 brands of bran. The sample was collated as part of a research on the nutritional composition of breakfast cereals in New Zealand. This nutritional profile can be summarised as being, mainly, biased towards excess of fiber, adequate in carbohydrate and saturated fat, high in protein, sugar and sodium, and low in fat.

This nutritional value may be more representative of those who change brands often, as well as of the population, in general. However, it is less representative of the universe of brands on offer and of those consumers who prefer a particular brand of bran, for which a prototypical nutritional value may be more relevant (see foodBNI).
