Granola is basically baked clustered oats. Similar to different products, there are various flavors available for granola too. For people who love to create flavors, there is plain granola to add different ingredients like fruits and veggies to your choice. So, you can experiment here as per your likings.
Apart from plain basic flavor, there are options with out-of-box added flavors like dried fruits, seeds, nuts, a few special flavors like chocolate, and plenty of other options available, too, like added quinoa, puffed rice, and more.
Granola is considered one of the healthiest breakfast options. It consists of oats, honey or other sweeteners such as brown sugar. It comes in many flavours these days, such as chocolate, cranberries, strawberries, honey, nuts, and more.
So you can choose accordingly to your taste and preferences. My personal favourite flavour is Kellogg's Crunchy Granola Chocolate & Almonds.
Since granola will be an important constituent of your diet, it is important to fulfill your daily calorie intake sufficiently. Certain granola contains nuts, whole grains, and dried fruits which are rich in fiber.
If we were to compare the same amount of rice and oatmeal, oatmeal would be 20 times higher in fiber content with twice the amount of iron and five times the amount of calcium.
Therefore, it can help with intestinal homeostasis, control hyperglycemia, lower cholesterol, and increase iron and calcium intake. So, if you want to rely on granola for your breakfast heavily, look for oats.
Oats are full of nutrients and fibre. Oats offer many science-backed health benefits such as weight loss, reduced risk of heart disease, control diabetes levels etc. Also, it is always better to use instant oats other than rolled oats as they are pre-cooked and cooks faster.
Dried fruits such as raisins and dried apricots are a great source of vitamins B and A, making the body less susceptible to fatigue and helping fortify the immune system, respectively. Nuts such as almonds and cashews provide vitamins E, K, and minerals like magnesium, zinc, keep the body healthy.
Ingredients like almonds, hazelnuts, and peanuts are a good source of Omega-6 and chia seeds, flax seeds for Omega-3. Check the nutritional label on the box and select accordingly. Certain granola brands are rich in protein as well. So, check the labels of each product and compare them.
For people with nut allergies, they should specifically read the box ingredients, and if they are allergic to any ingredients, for example, Peanuts, you can be wary of that granola product.
It is always better to find out granola that has dried fruits and nuts in it, as it increases the nutritional value of granola because of high protein and fibre.
Dried fruits and nuts contain antioxidants like vitamin E, which can lower body inflammation and prevent cell damage that can cause serious diseases.
In case the list of ingredients includes sugars like corn syrup, molasses, and cane sugar; or unhealthy oils like palm oil, hydrogenated oil, and vegetable oil, then you should consider choosing another product as such ingredients can be really high in calories and saturated fats, making the product quite unhealthy.
There are options available with natural sugars like jaggery, banana, honey. Read the ingredients table carefully before buying and select options with these ingredients for a more healthy diet.
Ingredients such as added sugar like corn syrup, maple syrup, brown rice syrup etc., can be harmful to people who have diabetes. It also minimises the health benefits of granola. In such a case, one should find granola that has natural sugar such as jaggery in it.
It is easy to be tempted to try something new and healthy and buy in larger quantities, and later, when you don't like the taste, you have no choice to finish off somehow or left it to rot on one of your shelves. We recommend starting with smaller packaging and find out for yourself whether you like the taste.
With smaller packaging, you can test different flavors and avoid wasteful expenditure and waste of food. You can see if it suits your routine lifestyle or not. Later, you may opt to buy larger quantities and spend wisely accordingly.
Always buy a small pack when trying or adding something new to your diet. You can buy granola of different flavours and brands in small packets available, so you can easily compare and check what suits you the best. Some brands also provide combo packs of different flavours, you can prefer that too.
One of the simplest ways to eat granola is with a little bit of milk. You have to heat the milk for 30-40 seconds and add Granola into it.
Don't heat the granola because it will get too soft and will not taste good. The only drawback in having it with milk is that milk contains fat, decreasing the nutritional benefit of granola.
There are many people who do like the taste of soy milk, but having it with granola would make it easier as granola has its own distinct and strong flavour. Having granola with soy milk every day might help you slowly develop a taste for it.
In case you are intolerant to lactose, always use soy milk with your granola. Soy milk is a good source of potassium and can be fortified with vitamins A, B-12, and D and Calcium.
It contains as much protein as cows milk, yet it is lower in calories. It is also naturally free of cholesterol and contains no lactose.
Granola is often high in sugar, but adding yoghurt makes it a more balanced meal and adds calcium, vitamins, protein, and minerals. Therefore, granola with yoghurt not only tastes better but also nutritious.
For example - Yogurt Parfait is a famous dessert with a layering of yoghurt with granola, nuts and fresh fruits topped with whipped cream.
Adding fresh fruits to your granola is a very healthy way of making your meal full of nutrients. Also, if you're not comfortable with granola flavour or other added contents, you can easily add your favourite fruits on the top, so your granola bowl tastes as your preference and suits your appetite. I usually prefer adding berries on the top of my granola bowl.
We have assembled a section with different buying guides all related to food with important points and things to check before buying.
The right type of granola has a high nutritional value and is often quite delicious as well. It may seem like the differences lie only in the flavours, but as we’ve discussed in the article, depending on the ingredients, granola can be quite different from one another. Hope you can find the best granola pack from the choices we've mentioned. Happy buying!
