What are the nutritional benefits of muesli?

  • Muesli typically has less sugar and calories than most breakfast cereals on supermarket shelves.
  • It's high in fiber and whole grains, which regulate the digestive system, are filling and can aid in weight control.
  • Muesli is a potent source of antioxidants.
