The difference between muesli and cruesli

  1. With some yoghurt and fruit, you can quickly turn muesli or cruesli into a tasty, filling breakfast. Is it also a lean start to the day? And what is the difference between muesli and cruesli?

  1. Muesli is an invention of Maximilian Bircher-Benner. This Swiss doctor developed it around the year 1900 as food for his patients. He experimented with vegetarian, raw and minimally processed foods because he was convinced that they are healthier than meat, preserves and white sugar.

 € ‹Apple porridge

  1. Bircher-Benner made a paste of grated apples, soaked oat flakes, lemon juice, milk and nuts and served it in his sanatorium as a light evening meal. The fruit was the most important ingredient. He called it Apfeldi¤tspeise. His healthy snack became known as Bircher muesli, a combination of his name and the word muesli, which in Swiss German means something like mousse or knit. With us, muesli became popular in the 1960s, when more and more people became interested in healthy food. Our muesli hardly resembles that of Dr. Bircher-Benner anymore. Today it contains all kinds of other grains in addition to oats, such as wheat, barley, rye and spelled. In addition, nuts, dried fruit, coconut grater, chocolate and other seasonings are sometimes added.

 € ‹Cruesli

  1. Cruesli is a variant of muesli. It is not actually a product name, but the brand name that the breakfast cereal brand Quaker gave to its crispy muesli. This term has become so established that we call all crunchy muesli chunks cruesli, whether from Quaker or not. It is made by baking muesli with oil or butter and sugar, honey, or a sugar substitute. The resulting cakes are broken into small pieces.

 € ‹Fiber

  1. Just like bread, muesli and cruesli contain a lot of fiber: a bowl of muesli averages 3.6 grams, a bowl of crispy muesli 2.7 grams. In comparison, one slice of whole grain bread contains about 2.3 grams of dietary fiber. Good for your bowel movements and they also ensure that you are full for a long time. In addition, muesli contains carbohydrates, proteins, fibers, B vitamins and minerals. If you add some fresh fruit, you will already have one of the two recommended pieces of fruit for breakfast.

 € ‹Sugar and fat

  1. The disadvantage is that manufacturers often add extra sugar to the muesli. When making cruesli, fat and sugar are needed to make it nice and crunchy, so cruesli contains even more sugar and saturated fat than muesli. The precise amounts of sugar and saturated fat vary by brand and type. It is therefore smart to look carefully at the packaging to see what exactly is in it, especially if you pay attention to your line. You can also make your own healthy muesli from oatmeal and other grains, seeds, unroasted nuts and dried fruit.
