Natural Wheat Bran vs. Bran "Buds" or cereals

violabratsche | Dec 10, 2007 08:00 AM

Many recipes call for bran buds cereal or bran flakes instead of, or as well as natural wheat bran. Most of these cereals seem to be simply compacted wheat bran. Now, buying these cereals costs from 3 to 5 times what it costs to buy natural wheat bran, at the grocery store. I'd rather just use the bran, but I wonder if it can be replaced, cup for cup, or if I should be trying to replace it by weight?

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks in advance for the input
