Read all ingredients carefully. I think that brand of cereal (I'm in
France so I can't check) has Nutrasweet.
I hate the fact that most cereals have either added sugar or added
sugar substitute. I found a brand of cereal that has just wheat bran
and dates and it is wonderful (and only available in Belgium and Denmark).
I think there are versions of all-Bran that do not have sweeteners, but
I can't remember which. I going to try making my own cereals when I
get back to the States and have all those wonderful organic ingredients.
(There's great stuff here too, but more variety in the US.)

Honestly, I can't even put dressing on any vegetables any more because I
hate masking their flavor. One can even have the problem of not getting

it's hard to get enough from that!
