Home - Cheerios
Cheerios is a brand of breakfast cereal by General Mills introduced in 1941 originally named CheeriOats. The name was changed to Cheerios in 1945 because of a trade name dispute with Quaker Oats. The name fit the "O" shape of the cereal pieces. Both original Cheerios cereal and Honey Nut Cheerios cereal contain beta-glucan, a soluble fibre in whole grain oats. This is one specific type of fibre that has been shown in scientific research to help lower cholesterol.
