The First Cereal Was So Hard It Had To Be Soaked Overnight

In 1863, the first cold cereal was invented by a doctor named James Caleb Jackson. He believed that cold cereal could be a cure to illness. At the time, many health care practitioners believed sickness originated in the digestive system.

According to Hilary Greenbaum and Dana Rubenstein of The New York Times Magazine, the doctor double-baked graham flour into brittle cakes that were so hard, they had to be soaked in milk overnight.

Not exactly appetizing.

John Harvey Kellogg (sound familiar?) tried his hand at creating a similar breakfast cereal, but without that awful rock-hard quality. He created his own ‘Granula’ from a mixture of flour, oatmeal and cornmeal.

After Jackson sued, Kellogg renamed the breakfast cereal “Granola” and, with his brother, William Kellogg, he founded the cereal empire we know today.

Not only did he invent a newer, more edible recipe for ‘Granula,’ but he also created the cereal flake, writes Karen Hochman for The Nibble.

So, the next time you pour a bowl full of Froot Loops, be grateful that Kellogg came along, otherwise, we’d probably still be soaking our ‘Granula’ rocks as part of our nightly routine!

Ever Eaten Bread After Cutting Off The Moldy Parts? Here’s Why You Shouldn’t

Nobody likes coming home from the grocery store and discovering a patch of fuzzy blue stuff on a loaf of bread. Instead of bringing it back to the store or throwing good food away, you take out a knife and cut off the moldy parts. After all, the bread isn’t at its expiry date and it isn’t stale yet. The rest of the loaf is okay to eat, right?

Well, you could be in for an unpleasant surprise. While some claim it’s perfectly safe to eat moldy bread as long as the white, grey, and blue parts are picked off, the truth is a lot more grim.

Ak74 Information

Marianne Gravely, senior technical information specialist for the United States Department of Agriculture, advises people to throw away

“We don’t recommend cutting mold off of bread, because it’s a soft food,” she said. “With soft food, it’s very easy for the roots [of the mold], or the tentacles, or whatever creepy word you want to use, to penetrate [deeper into the food].”

hdimagelib

While salami, hard cheeses, and firm fruit and vegetables are safe to eat after moldy bits have been removed, spores burrow deep into the soft and porous parts of bread. While you can’t always see the mold throughout the bread, it can make you sick if you eat it.

Food Hacks

“Scraping or cutting this part off of your bread or bagel won’t save you from eating a mouthful of fungus,” Live Science wrote.

Living By Christ

While not all mold is hazardous to your health, it’s best not to take the risk. Some contains mycotoxins, which can cause “allergic reactions or respiratory problems.” If that wasn’t scary enough already, a poisonous aflatoxin can be found in some molds, and it’s been linked to cancer.

Amoroso’s

“I have seen mold spread from one slice to the next,” Marianne Gravely told NPR. “I’m sure some people would really want to press the situation, but bread is cheap. Go buy some more.”

Your Morning Coffee Routine Could Change Because Of These New Bagels

What’s your morning routine? Do you brew a cup of coffee, make a mad dash for the door, and pick up a bagel on your way to work? You’re not alone. Over 30 million Americans skip breakfast in the mornings. Instead, we opt for the more convenient cup of coffee to get our engines running for the day.

We know it’s bad for us, but how else are we supposed to get the kickstart we need?

Einstein Bros. Bagels has the perfect solution, and other bagel companies are jumping on the new trend as well.

If you want to save yourself some time in the mornings, you can now get your breakfast and buzz in one go. The new Espresso Buzz Bagel has 32 milligrams of caffeine and tastes just like a cup of coffee.

“We have watched a coffee difficulty enhance and adjust as Millennials converted to coffee drinkers, captivated by a smoother season and artisanal characteristics and third- and fourth-wave coffee,” said Kerry Coyne of Einstein Bros. Bagels.

TheDailyDriveThru

The jury hasn’t reached a consensus on whether the coffee-flavored bagel is a good idea or not.

Go to the next page to find out what tasters had to say about the bagel.

We love our coffee, but is coffee-flavored bread a delicious treat or something really gross? The reviews are in, and here’s what people had to say about it.

“It tastes like I just ate a mouthful of coffee grains,” said one taster.

“This tastes like chewy coffee and I’m not certain that’s a good thing,” said one taster.

“I adore coffee and we adore this. we usually wish we had some [coffee] to splash along with it,” another taster said.

The dark colored bagel is the ultimate multi-tasker when it comes to breakfast combos. Einstein posted a photo of the new menu addition on Instagram with a bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich.
