familia pure balance Almonds & Honey
familia pure balance Almonds & Honey has whole roasted almonds and a hint of tasty honey. The almonds are hand-selected and roasted in the traditional way. With 30% less sugar and lots of wholegrain oats, this crunchy müesli is an ideal way to start the day.

familia pure balance has a high content of the dietary fibre beta-glucan from the oats. This has been proven to lower cholesterol levels in the blood. Beta-glucan has a positive effect if you consume 3 g of oat beta-glucan per day. One 50 g portion of familia pure balance contains 1/3 of your recommended daily allowance of beta-glucan.

Cholesterol reduction from oat beta-glucans

Beta-glucan is a soluble dietary fibre that occurs naturally in oats. Studies have shown that it can lower cholesterol levels in the blood.

Beta-glucan breaks down as it passes through the digestive tract. Dietary fibres then form a gel, which bonds substances such as bile acid to cholesterol. The bile acid is then naturally excreted. New bile acid is subsequently produced in the liver, burning up cholesterol and causing LDL-cholesterol levels to fall. In this way, the absorption of cholesterol into the blood stream is reduced. Only bad cholesterol (LDL) is absorbed in this process. Good cholesterol (HDL) is not affected.

Bood sugar and oat beta-glucan

As well as having a positive effect on cholesterol levels, oat beta-glucan helps to regulate blood sugar levels. When beta-glucan is digested it forms a gel, which makes the contents of the stomach and small intestine more viscous. This prolongs the digestive process, which slows the uptake of carbohydrates in the blood stream. This helps to avoid sudden fluctuations in blood sugar levels and helps you to feel full for longer.

Oat beta-glucan slows the increase in blood sugar levels after a meal and slows down the decrease in blood sugar to pre-meal levels.

familia pure balance Ancient Grains & Apples
In familia pure balance Ancient Grains & Apples, selected ancient grain varieties from the region enjoy a new lease of life. These grains have remained unchanged for thousands of years, and are now mixed with juicy pieces of apple and rustic pumpkin seeds to create a delicious, crispy müesli that is also suitable for vegans.

This crispy müesli contains valuable germ buds of spelt, einkorn, emmer and buckwheat. The easily digestible “germ power” of the crispy müesli provides you with natural vitamins and minerals, leaving you feeling full of vitality!

What is “germ power”?

Its valuable “germ power” gives the familia pure balance Ancient Grains & Apples a naturally increased concentration of vitamins and minerals.

Grains are normally harvested and then processed to produce flour or flakes. In the case of germinated grains, the kernels are exposed to light, heat, water and oxygen to bring them to germination.
During the germination process, the vitamins in the grain increase and minerals are released, making them easier for the body to absorb. The germinated grains are then carefully dried and gently milled. This produces high quality germ-bud flour, which contains natural vitamins and minerals.

The “germ power” of the familia pure balance Ancient Grains & Apples carries the natural vitality of the germ buds of spelt, einkorn, emmer and buckwheat.
