About the product

When you think of muesli a few fruity thoughts come to mind:  rasin’s, dry banana’s and of course that funny dry piece of cocnut skin.

However Primrose’s Kitchen new breakfast cereal has revamped not only the ingredients but the taste too!.  This stunning box contains sweet beetroot and zingy ginger – but not too zingy that you will smell of it all day!

Delicious gluten free oats with fresh beetroot and zingy ginger together with a balanced combination of nuts and seeds as well as extra love in the form of milk thistle seeds, and lethicin.

A fabulous way to get both beetroot and ginger into your everyday diet, the muesli is slowly dehydrated at low tempratures to ensure all the goodness is preserved. With two gold star’s to their name, Primrose’s Kitchen offers unique and healthy foods which will keep mind and body working at it’s best all day long.

You can buy the Raw Beetroot and Ginger Muesli 400g pack for £5.95  or for a more cost effective way you can purchase the 4KG bag for £49 at Primrose’s Kitchen.
