Eat This Instead Farina Vs. Wheat Cereal

January 05, 2009|By KATE SHATZKIN

Want to save sodium on your hot cereal? If you choose Cream of Wheat Enriched Farina, you'll get 85 milligrams per serving, before you add your own salt. Farina Original Creamy Hot Wheat Cereal, on the other hand, cooks just as fast but has no sodium. (We found the latter at Eddie's of Roland Park.)
