Kellogg's All Bran Original
Advantages: A high fibre cereal
Disadvantages: Palatable but not my favourite!
Kellogg`s All Bran is a cereal made from natural wheat bran, it is high in fibre and provides us with essential roughage.
Fibre can be found in natural foods and vegetables. Fruit, nuts and whole grains are all rich in fibre and provide our body with many nutrients and vitamins.
Fibre helps our bowels to keep regular and it also keeps our digestive system in good shape, lessening the chance of chronic illness.
Kellogg`s always seem to manufacture first class products. When you look along the supermarket aisles the Kellogg`s packaging is unmistakable, most of the packets have the famous red cockerel on.
The company makes breakfast cereal to cater for all age groups.
Kellogg's cereals may cost a few more pence than the Supermarket own brand but nine times out of ten there is a marked difference.
But some of the leading supermarket chains often offer promotions on Kellogg's cereals, I recently found Weetabix on offer at an excellent price.
All Bran original is fairly palatable, small light and crispy flakes of wheat. I have to fill my bowl up or else i`m back in the cupboard looking for another helping five minutes later and I cant eat them without a good covering of semi skimmed milk and a sprinkling of sugar. A cup full of All Bran wouldnt be far off of my recommended daily fibre intake.
I hold my hands up here though, I will only buy All Bran if I think I `need` it (putting it politely there).
I would much rather have a bowl full of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes!
The Kellogg's Extra Fibre bran doesn't tempt me at all! I appreciate that a lot of people needing a High Fibre diet will disagree with me here, but the texture and the flavour of the High Fibre bran is (Shhhh...awful)
But there is one recipe that the High Fibre Bran is brilliant for, I don't know whether any of you have tried making Malt loaf using it?
Just put 1 cup of All bran, 1 cup of Brown sugar, 1 cup of Mixed Fruit, 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of Self raising into a basin and mix well together.
Line a small loaf tin with greaseproof paper and then put the mixture into the tin. Bake it on one of the lower shelves at Gas mark 6 for just over an hour.
The bran makes the loaf taste lovely. Slice the loaf when its cool and spread the slices with butter.
A 500 g packet retails at around £1.50, but make sure to look out for the in store promotions.
Kellogg`s also offer bran in other forms, there are Multi Grain and Garlic and Herb Crackers, All bran Strawberry Medley, All Bran yogurt bites, All Bran Bran Bud All Bran Wheat Flakes and they have also incorporated bran into a selection of Kellogg's cereal bars.
Roughage is an essential part of our everyday diet and I wouldn't dispute this, im sure that Kellogg's have tried to make the whole idea seem more attractive, but given the choice there are other cereals I would much rather eat!
Summary: A high fibre cereal that is full of nutrients.
