Nearly everyone who enjoys a bowl of cereal in the morning also reads the box. Inevitably, we all end up on the nutrition facts, hoping the breakfast food we’re eating also contains high volumes of much needed vitamins and minerals.

But most of us have become normalized to the fact that, yes, the magnesium and iron in our cereal is the real deal. We are eating the actual metal that can be found in chemistry labs around the world. Just very small amounts.  

Don’t believe it until you see it? Well, with direction from Steve Spangler Science, you can extract a visible amount of iron from a mineral packed cereal, like Total. 

Science. You crazy.
