Do Corn Flakes Have Fiber? (Answered)

Corn Flakes were invented by Will Kellogg in 1894. The cereal was ultimately what helped launch the Kellogg Company which we now more commonly call Kellogg’s.

Today, Kellogg’s is not the only maker of Corn Flakes. Several generic or store brands exist that taste similar to the original.

This article takes a look at the fiber in Kellogg’s Corn Flakes and its popular knockoffs. Let’s get into the details!

How Much Fiber in Corn Flakes?

Corn Flakes have a minimal amount of fiber, as seen in the table below. This includes not only Kellogg’s but all brands listed.

Corn Flakes are not the best cereal for fiber but they do provide a small amount with 1 gram per serving. If you want to increase your fiber, we suggest considering one of the brands listed in the “High Fiber Cereals” section below.

Recommended Daily Fiber

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that people consume 28 grams of fiber on a 2,000-calorie diet. This amount should be increased or decreased based on the calories you personally consume. For example, if you have a 1,000-calorie diet, you should consume half of the 2,000-calorie recommended fiber or 14 grams.

Considering that most Americans consume over 2,000 calories daily, a bowl of Corn Flakes won’t significantly decrease the amount of fiber you are recommended to consume. However, this small amount is helpful when combined with other sources of fiber throughout the day.

Higher Fiber Cereals

If your goal is to increase your fiber intake, you may wish to consider one of the cereals below. All of them have over 6 grams of fiber per serving, which is much more than the 1 gram in Corn Flakes.

In particular, if you can palate one of the listed Kashi or Fiber One cereals, you’d benefit from getting a lot of fiber that you wouldn’t get from most other cereals.
