I don't mind getting 20-30g's worth of soy in a day

I have a hard time with milk & food at the same time which sucks cause I like cereal, I can eat it as a 3,4,5th meal though

has quite a bit of sugar for the amount of carbs

have you ever heard of Kashi Go-Lean Cereal?

What are you goals? If your're cutting, I would avoid, due, to what Ghetto said, the sugar. But, if you're bulking, it wouldn't hurt.

it says only 0.9 g sugar, but do u think this is inaccurate, isn't maltodextrin a form of sugar?

Looks fine IMO:)

Maltodextrin is technically a complex carb, but it is also high GI. Maltodextrin is a chain of glucose molecules hooked together (polysaccharide) where as dextrose is a monosccharide.

There are also disaccharides such as sucrose and lactose. There is one other class of carbohydrate called oligosaccharides and this would include things such as stachyose and raffinose, which are usually found in legumes.
