Eden selected organic 100% whole grain EDEN Brown Rice Flakes - Oat Flakes - Kamut® Flakes - Rye Flakes - Spelt Flakes are created with the protection of flavor and efficacy always in mind. North American family farm organically grown whole grain is hulled, sprayed with purified well water, then ceramic lined kiln roasted. The hot, roasted grain is stainless steel rolled into flakes. This straightforward method best protects whole grain's nutrients while producing flakes that are easy to prepare and most delicious. It also gives whole grain much greater versatility. The flakes can become very nice hot cereal in just a few minutes. Adding EDEN lowbush dried blueberries and/or dried cranberries is almost always a good idea.

Combining various flakes provides new pleasures in flavor and texture. Please experiment and find combinations that please you most. Mixing them also enhances the nutrient variety you get. This writer's favorite combination for hot cereal is half oat flakes, and a quarter each of the spelt and rye.

EDEN whole grain flakes are not just for cereal. Use them in salads, soups, stews, granola, desserts, and baked goods. They are the basis for organic EDEN Müesli.

Müesli - Anytime Food, Cold or Hot

Müesli is whole grain cereal with dried fruits, nuts, and/or seeds. It was first created around 1900 by Swiss physician Dr. Maximillian Bircher-Benner and his wife for patients in their hospital. Today, müesli is popular cereal throughout Europe. EDEN Müesli is made from three EDEN Flakes - rolled oats, rye, and spelt wheat; three 100% organic dried fruits - raisins, lowbush wild blueberries, and cranberries for sweet, tangy texture; and two seeds - roasted, lightly salted pumpkin seeds and raw sunflower seeds lend richness and crunch. Everything is organically grown and handled according to Eden Foods criteria. EDEN Cinnamon Müesli includes organic cinnamon Cinnamomum cassia that adds efficacy and flavor. EDEN Müesli is to be enjoyed cold or hot (3 to 10 minutes to cook, you decide), right out of the bag as a snack, and as a baking ingredient.
