Pretty perfect muesli

October 15, 2013
  Cereals. They haven’t got the cleanest rep. Often they’re full of healthy promises but in reality, they contain a huge amount of sugar, salt and additives. Take  Dorset Cereals’ Berries and Cherries – if you think it’s a healthy option, you are SO wrong. It contains (amongst other things) 51 per cent dried AND sweetened fruit; raisins, sultanas, flame raisins, sweetened dried cranberries (sugar, cranberries, sunflower oil), sweetened dried blueberries (blueberries, sugar), freeze dried cherries, freeze dried blackcurrants, freeze dried raspberries, blackcurrant flavour barley flakes (barley, sugar, natural flavouring, sunflower oil), blackcurrant flavour barley flakes (barley, sugar, natural flavouring, fruit and vegetable concentrate (blackcurrant, black carrot, sunflower oil)).… Continue reading...
