do you make a muesli for people who want to eat less wheat?

Yes, our Luxury Crunchy Muesli, Orange & Walnut Crunchy Muesli, Tropical Crunchy Muesli and Apple & Raisin Crunchy Muesli have no wheat


do you make any muesli that is gluten free?

No, we don't make any products that are totally gluten-free. Some of our mueslis have no wheat which people with gluten sensitivities might find easier to digest.


why do your mueslis contain sugar?

Some sugar is inherent within the dried fruit within our products, known as intrinsic sugars. Some of our mueslis have honey or demerara sugar in them. Wherever we can, we use the minimal amount of these ingredients in our products.


where does the sugar come from in your muesli?

everyone needs a little bit of sugar in their diet. Nearly all the sugar found in our recipes comes from the naturally occurring sugars in the fruit and provides essential fuel for the brain and energy for daily activities. We pride ourselves on the high fruit, nut and seed content of our recipes and it’s due to this that we have naturally higher levels of sugar (fruit sugar)


where does the fat come from in your muesli

the fat in our recipes is “good” fat from the delicious nuts and seeds we pack into our products. Nuts and seeds are high in fibre, rich in a wide range of vitamins and minerals and a good source of protein. They are also an excellent source of monounsaturated fat, which is thought to help reduce cholesterol in the blood. Some of the wholegrain cereals we use – for example, oats and barley – also contain naturally occurring fats and sugars.


some of your Mueslis seem to be high in calories

calories are the fuel for the body. They come from the carbohydrates, fats and proteins in foods. By their very nature, energy-dense ingredients such as nuts are high in fuel or calories. As part of a nutritionally balanced diet, all our products will contribute to a healthy diet plan.



How does one consume muesli ?

muesli is the perfect way to start the day as it forms a complete nutritional breakfast. Delicious with hot or cold milk or one can even enjoy it on its own.


These healthy cereals are equally enjoyable as a light lunch or an anytime snack, giving you nourishment and goodness. They can also be used as a topping for ice cream or with yogurt (dahi).

If the product contains almonds, how can it be zero cholesterol?

almonds have no cholesterol as only animal fats are sources of cholesterol. In fact, our cereals may actually help reduce existing cholesterol levels, as they have a high amount of soluble fiber.
