About Raisin Bran (Post)

Raisin bran is a breakfast cereal manufactured by several companies under a variety of brand names, including Kellogg's Raisin Bran; General Mills' Total Raisin Bran, a variant by General Mills called Raisin Nut Bran; and Ralcorp's Post Raisin Bran. Skinner's Raisin Bran was the first brand on the market, introduced in the United States in 1926 by U.S. Mills, best known for the similar Uncle Sam Cereal. The name 'Raisin Bran' was at one time trademarked. In 1944, the District Court for Nebraska found: Raisin bran has high dietary fiber content, but has been criticized for containing too much sugar. Raisins naturally contain high levels of fructose. Many manufacturers add sugar to the raisins; as of January 7, 2010, Kellogg's adds high-fructose corn syrup to its Raisin Bran cereal in the United States. Kellogg's Raisin Bran is now also produced in Mexico for sale in the United States.
