Wheaties breakfast cereal, manufactured by General Mills, has been found to contain so many microscopic fragments of metal that individual flakes can be lifted and carried using common magnets, a Natural News Forensic Food Lab investigation has found and documented. Photos of the microscopy investigation are posted now at labs.naturalnews.com
A video demonstrating Wheaties flakes clinging to magnets has also been posted at YouTube:
The metal bits are added to Wheaties cereal to enhance the nutritional profile and claim a higher iron content on the label, but lab director and food scientist Mike Adams is skeptical of the formulation. “Adding shards of metal to a cereal is not nutritionally equivalent to nutritive minerals formed during the growth of grain-producing plants,” he explains. “Bioavailability is vastly different.”
Adams believes adding metal fragments to a cereal mix in an effort to claim a higher nutritional content on the box is “inherently deceptive” and points out that the manufacturer, General Mills, has also sold other deceptively-labeled cereals such as “TOTAL Blueberry Pomegranate” which contains no blueberries nor pomegranates.
