Introducing Gluten Free Muesli {Giveaway}

We’re excited to introduce a new Bob’s Red Mill cereal, Gluten Free Muesli! We’ve been working for quite a while to get the right combination of ingredients for the perfect flavor and texture, and we’re thrilled that it’s finally ready to share with you.


Good Food is the Best Medicine

As we were developing our new Gluten Free Muesli, we did some research and learned a few interesting facts. For instance, did you know that muesli was invented by a doctor? It’s true! Muesli was created in the late 1800s by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Benner. In addition to being a doctor, he was also a nutritionist who advocated for eating a diet of natural, whole foods. Here’s a quote from him that we like a lot: “Nutrition is not the highest thing in life, but it is the soil on which the highest things either flourish or perish.”

Clearly Dr. Bircher-Benner was ahead of his time in understanding that good food is the best medicine, and it was this understanding that led him to create muesli, a healthy blend of grains, fruit and nuts specially developed to nourish recuperating patients. Over 100 years later, Bob’s Red Mill is carrying on this wholesome tradition, but we’re making it even better—not only is our new muesli as tasty and nutritious as the original created by Dr. Bircher-Benner, it’s also gluten free.


Gluten Free is Our Promise

We know that even a little bit of gluten can be a big problem for those of you who have gluten sensitivities, so we ensure the integrity of our Gluten Free Muesli every step of the way. We start with oats grown by expert farmers in fields that are dedicated to oats only—never used for growing wheat, barley or rye—which eliminates the risk of cross-contamination at the source. Then we combine these special oats with other delicious, gluten free ingredients including dried apples and cranberries, pumpkin seeds, almonds and coconut flakes. All the processing and packaging is done in Bob’s Red Mill’s dedicated gluten free facility. Finally, the product is tested in our state-of-the-art lab to verify it is truly gluten free. Please be aware that a small percentage of people cannot tolerate even the purest of oats. If you are unsure whether oats are suitable for your diet, please check first with your health advisor before eating them. Read more about oat sensitivity here.


Many Ways to Enjoy Muesli

One thing we love about muesli is how versatile it is. Here are a few great ways to enjoy our new Gluten Free Muesli.

  • Cook it on the stove top with water or milk to make a tasty hot porridge
  • Splash some cold milk on it for an instant cereal breakfast
  • Mix it with yogurt and soak in the refrigerator overnight for an easy-to-digest morning meal
  • Top with fresh fruit for an extra nutritional boost
  • Add it to baked goods in place of regular oats (here’s a great recipe for Gluten Free Muesli Bread)
  • Sprinkle on ice cream for a scrumptious dessert
