"With the creation of these cereals, we're providing two great-tasting organic options that offer positive nutrition through simple ingredients harvested for peak flavor," says Keegan Sheridan, natural food and lifestyle expert at Kashi.  "These organic cereals benefit the health of both people and our planet by providing high-quality, nutritious ingredients that are grown using farming methods that respect and maintain the environment."

Kashi Simply Maize Certified Organic cereal is made with whole organic corn that is puffed into hearty, crisp flakes with a touch of molasses.  Providing 23g of whole grains per serving*, nearly half of the recommended daily amount, this cereal offers a sweet and toasty flavor combination.
