This ain’t your pa’s Post Toasties:

One Degree Veganic Sprouted Ancient Maize Flakes

Well, let’s see what we have here:

Honest cereal made from the corn nature designed. Non-GMO, non-hybridized grain, sprouted to boost vitamins and minerals, ease digestibility. Sweetened with low-glycemic coconut palm sugar from Bali!

Actually, that doesn’t sound half bad. An Amazon retailer sells this for $12.99, about quadruple the price of Kellogg’s, but it took me about 30 seconds to find places selling it for half that or less. According to Vitacost, the manufacturer’s suggested retail price is a mere $6.19. That won’t buy you a whole lot of Grape-Nuts.

    I hate to tell them this, but corn isn’t exactly 100% nature-designed. It’s one of the most selectively bred crops out there, and even ancient corn has experienced serious tinkering at human hands. (citation)

    And okay, yeah, humans are part of nature and this is probably about as non-GMO as you can get, but….

    Also, for anyone concerned about locavory or their carbon footprint, that Bali sugar probably is kind of a deal-breaker.
