EXAMPLE INGREDIENTS LIST
Let’s look at our untoasted muesli to put this into practice….
INGREDIENTS: Rolled Oats, Sultanas, Wheat Flakes, Rolled Barley, Rolled Rye, Raw Sugar, Sunflower Oil, Linseed, Rye Meal, Apple Juice Concentrate, Dried Apricot, Wheat Bran, Cinnamon, Salt, Vitamins (Niacin, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Folic Acid, Mineral Iron, Vitamin E, Folate)
Natural sugars are contributed by sultana, apple juice concentrate and dried apricots. Most fall below the 3rd ingredient, so contribute minimally to the product. The dried fruit is also high in fibre.
Raw sugar is the 6th ingredient, so this product is likely to be low in added sugar.
Fat sources include sunflower oil and linseed – both of which are unsaturated fats.
Salt is the 15th ingredient so this profuct is likely to be low in added salt.
Fibre sources include rolled oats, wheat flakes, rolled barley, rolled rye, rye meal, sultanas and wheat bran – this product is likely to be an excellent source of fibre.
