Cereal with less than 5 grams of sugar
« on: December 05, 2018, 08:23:02 AM »
It's pretty clear now that processed sugar is terrible for us. So I'm always baffled that there is only 1 cereal brand in my local Lotte Mart with 5 grams of sugar or less (Kellog's 현미). I live in a pretty small town so I don't have much access to stores that sell a lot of foreign brands.

What are my options? Any Korean websites that sell low-sugar cereals that aren't super crazy expensive? Not looking for oatmeal, just cold cereal we can eat with milk.

Quacker Oats, 1.4g sugar per 100g serving, just buy it off Coupang or Gmarket (Coupang is usually cheaper). 
In Korea, you seriously gotta step your online game up, shops, particularly in the rural areas, put up ridiculous markups.

Korean cereal is caked in sugar. Even special K seems way sweeter than in the uk

Just give me some rice krispies or Shreddies (anyone know where I can buy them online?)

Emart at one time was carrying a cheap brand (forgot the name) of imported cereal. They had whole grain flakes with virtually 0 added sugar (and they tasted like it, which is why I add banana or other fruit), and rice puffs (same sweetness as crispies without the crackle). Maybe try to swing through again and check. They were on sale at the time ( a few months ago) for like 1,990won per box. I am not sure if they still carry them, or of the price.

Iherb has some good oatmeal.  Throw a banana or some blueberries.  A heaping spoon of peanut butter.  Great way to start the day kiddo.

Costco and Homeplus sell the exact same cereal that I can get in canada. Lots have little to no sugar.

If you don't like the selection of cereal in the supermarket then why don't you go back home!  :laugh: I jest.

You can often find foreign cereals in the popular department store supermarkets.
Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?

Just find some random Korean snacks and throw some milk on them. Smash up a multivitamin to go with it.

Or go for the breakfast of champions- Fruity Pebbles in Boone's Farm/last night's leftover jungle juice.

Mostly Seoul.  Mid sized cities and even some metropolitan cities that have a department store will often have less selection and limited variety.  Seoul Myeong Dong Shinsegye is best when I visit up to Seoul.  Many Marts away from Seoul don't have anything except the sugary Korean type. 


Anyways, I usually stock up on muesli boxes when I go up to Seoul a couple of times a year.  Then, I order stuff from I herb too.  I mix it all together and try to get through the semester as best I can.  Sometimes towards the very end I have to buy some Korean stuff.

Every Homeplus that I have shopped at has muesli. Maybe double check. They used to have a Tesco brand, but since they split, they have changed to another type that comes in a box.

I've seen muesli at Emarts before, although I haven't been to a brick and mortar Emart recently as I usually order my groceries from Emartmall.com.
