Monster Muesli is now available in Brunei

10Nov09

The Star recently reported that a Food Fair called the “Taste of Australia “was held recently in all Cold Storage Supermarkets in Malaysia. During the Fair, more than 150 well known Australian brands were brought in and this consist “biscuits, confectionery, canned vegetables, juices, wines, snacks and environmentally friendly laundry and household cleaning products. “. It looks like Australian foods are heavily promoted in Malaysia, why not, if there is a market for this good quality products.

Whilst on the theme of Australian “ Food “ I met Mr Wong of Syarikat Seri Ledang of Kuala Belait in Brunei . Mr Wong told me that his company is marketing a well known brand of Australian muesli, “Monster Muesli “(For more information on Monster Muesli please visit “http://monstermuesli.com.au/ “ ). Mr Wong said the Monster Muesli is available in most Supermarkets in Brunei and if it is not already available ask the Supermarket to contact Mr Wong.

What is “Muesli “food? According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muesli
“It is a loose mixture of mainly rolled oats together with various pieces of dried fruit, nuts, and seeds. It commonly contains other rolled cereal grains such as wheat or rye flakes as well. In mass-market brands, large amounts of sugar and whey are usually included, which give it a far sweeter and richer taste than traditional mueslis. There are many varieties, some of which may also contain honey, spices, or chocolate. This dry packaged muesli can be stored for many months.”

Muesli can be served as a breakfast cereal and this is one way it can be prepared.
“ It can be served quickly after mixing it with milk, yogurt, coffee, hot chocolate, fruit juice, or even just plain water. If desired pieces of fresh fruit may be added. Alternatively, the mix may be soaked overnight in milk and then served with fresh fruit or compote to taste.”
Muesli is also a popular ingredient in recipes. It can be added to muffins, cookies, or warm fruit salad. If you want to make Muesli Bar, you can find the recipe here: http://monstermuesli.com.au/page/recipes.html

My gosh as I did my research ( by doing a few clicks here and there ) , I found that Muesli , is also promoted as a healthy diet food ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muesli ) .

• A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of cancer and other age-related diseases, and a serving of muesli can contain one or two servings of fresh fruit.
• Oat products have been shown to help lower high blood cholesterol concentration (hypercholesterolemia) and thereby reduce the risk of arteriosclerosis. Raw oats contain phytic acid, an essential nutrient which the steam process used to create “quick oats” destroys.
• Products made from whole oat and wheat grains are rich in fibre and essential trace elements.
• Some types of nuts (especially walnuts) are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are associated with many health benefits, including the development of the nervous system.
• Milk products, often served with muesli, are a rich source of calcium and protein.
• The fruits that are in Muesli, as well as the oats are a source of fiber as well.
