Do you miss the flavour and texture of Weetabix? When you can’t eat wheat, it’s something you get used to, and you patiently await the day that someone, somewhere, invents a wonder product that fills the gap in the market (and in your tummy).
Sorghum is an ancient grain, which grows tall like corn, and has most often been used as a sweetener or animal feed. However, sorghum can also be used as a substitute for wheat when ground into flour. It can also be popped like corn, used in risotto or made into tasty breakfast cereals like Nutri-brex – hole in the tummy solved!
Nutri-brex is gluten free and completely vegan. It comes in two varieties – plain, 96% sorghum with a little golden syrup, salt and some lovely B vitamins. Or there’s the tasty Coconut & Crispy Rice option – this contains a little more sugar.
My favourite is actually the plain one – I find it almost exactly like Weetabix in texture and flavour. And it’s super filling and satisfying for breakfast. It doesn’t need much extra sweetness, but I like to add a little low GI coconut sugar, and I eat it with my favourite planet milk, Koko. A healthy and delicious breakfast.
You can pick up a box of Nutri-brex in many local stores including Holland & Barratt, Tesco & Sainsbury’s. It’s also available if you do your online shopping with Ocado, like me! And it’s coming to Waitrose very soon.
I was sent this product free of charge by Nutri-brex. All opinions are my own.
