Adults should be eating about 30g of fibre a day, and a high-fibre breakfast cereal is a good starting point. The fibre content of the mueslis we reviewed ranges from 3.5% to 18%, with an average just shy of 10%.
The eight in this table contain at least 15% — that’s 7.5g of fibre in an average 50g serve of muesli — which would provide a good kickstart to your day’s fibre intake.
Tips for choosing higher fibre
• Check the NIP for muesli with 10% (10g per 100g) or more fibre.
• Don’t rely solely on claims like ‘good source of fibre’ or ‘high in fibre’ — many mueslis with above average fibre are claim free.
