Familia Swiss Balance All Natural Vanilla Crunch contains Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D. Keep your balance

Why are calcium and magnesium good for you? Calcium and magnesium are two minerals essential for good health. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body with 99% stored in bones and teeth. It supports their structure and helps keep them strong. Calcium is also found throughout your body where it is needed for the vital processes that keep your body functioning efficiently. Likewise, magnesium helps make up the structure of your bones to make them strong. It is also needed for hundreds of biochemical reactions that keep your metabolism running smoothly.

How can you get the calcium you need everyday? The best way to get your calcium is through the food you eat. The daily recommended amount of calcium for an adult is 1000mg. To absorb the calcium in food, you need to have enough vitamin D as well. Here are some suggestions to make sure your daily calcium numbers add up. Just eat 3-4 servings of these foods everyday: 1 bowl of Familia Swiss Balance Vanilla Crunch 1 cup milk 1 yogurt And don't forget to exercise and get a daily breath of fresh air for the best health.

Keep your personal balance - start everyday with Familia Swiss Balance Vanilla Crunch with calcium, magnesium and vitamin D - a combination of the finest cereals, apples, raisins and vanilla.

Switzerland, known for its luscious green pastures, crystal clear lakes and magnificent mountains, is also the birthplace of Müesli. For centuries, Swiss families have been starting their day with this blend of cereal grains mixed with fruit and nuts.

For almost 50 years, the Bio-Familia company has offered the original Müesli recipe to the world. From the small town of Sachseln, nestled in rich famrland and surrounded by the Alps, villagers work diligently to produce authentic Müesli, granola and other fine cereals.

Today, the Bio-Familia company uses its years of experience to create unique cereals that deliver abundant flavor but very little fat. Familia's Low Fat Granola is a blend of oats, spelt, corn, soy flakes and cereal crispies. These wholesome grains are carefully mixed with raisins, wheat flakes, honey and coconut and then roasted to create a perfect combination of great taste and healthy goodness.

Whey settle for cereal that tries to look Swiss? Enjoy the best - 100% authentic Granola made with pride in Switzerland!

Familia's Raw Materials
Since 1959 Familia has been using only the finest raw materials in their products. Organic and conventional quality products alike are manufactured with the same amount of care and attention. bio-familia is proud to count itself as one of the pioneers of organic agriculture. By offering farmers purchasing guarantees for grain and fruit, they have been able to support organic farming since its earliest beginnings. Their suppliers guarantee them top-quality raw materials – that way, they only put the very best into each box of familia müesli, today and in the years to come.

From the Whole Grain
Wherever possible, wholegrain cereal is used in familia müesli. Wholegrain means that the outer, fibre-rich layer of the grain, as well as the germ bud itself, are used in the product. This aids digestion, the body feels full for longer and is supplied with high-quality oils – without feeling "over-full". Important vitamins and trace elements can also be found in this layer – vitamin E, B-vitamins, magnesium, calcium and iron among others.

What makes their ingredients so special?
Bio-familia recipes are very much based on the philosophy of Dr. Bircher-Benner, the Swiss doctor and "inventor" of Birchermüesli, although of course their choice of raw materials today is also influenced by the latest scientific findings on nutrition and by the demands of their market.

Oats are one of the indigenous cereal crops and originally came from Scandinavia. Oats provide a lasting feeling of satisfaction and contain high levels of protein and high-grade oil, as well as valuable minerals, such as magnesium and iron. The original recipe developed by Dr. Bircher-Benner uses oats as the only grain.

Barley is a neglected cereal crop. Large tracts of land in France and Australia are given over to the cultivation of barley and while it is often used in the production of malt and beer, barley flakes can also be found in various types of müesli.

In their part of the world, wheat is the grain most often used to bake bread and is the basis of many of our pastry products. It is low in fat and has a high percentage of gluten (protein) which is essential to the baking process although from time to time people can have allergic reactions to wheat. Wholegrain wheat flour has a high fibre content and is also a good source of vitamins and minerals.

Spelt is the typical indigenous cereal crop and in shops it is often referred to as "original spelt". Spelt is an undemanding crop to cultivate and for this reason a very popular "organic" cereal. Many people find spelt easier to digest than wheat and it is therefore used in a host of products and recipes. Spelt is also excellent in the form of flakes and gives a flake müesli a light crunchiness. Puffed spelt also has its fans.

Familia's pieces of apple are usually unpeeled as an additional provider of fibre and taste. None of their organic apple pieces are sulphurised and thus have a slightly brownish colour. Familia use home-grown fresh Swiss apples to make the drum-dried fruit and apple flakes as an ingredient for the classic Swiss Birchermüesli. The apples which they use for their apple "chips" are grown in South Tyrol. In choosing the variety of apple, they tend towards a more acid-tasting apple, which then gives more freshness to the müesli.

Raisins add a natural, healthy sweetness to the müesli. There are many different types of raisin, varying in both colour and size. This brings an element of visual variety to the müesli. And if you are not a raisin-lover, you can choose from one of the following familia müeslis: familia Beeren Crunch, familia Choc'X+Bits, familia Spezial, familia fit crisp, familia a.c.e.balance, familia BodyBalance or familia Champion PowerPacks.

Cranberries / Cowberries
Dark red, sweet and pleasantly tart – this is the "American sister" of the lingoberry. What they have in common is their red colouring which contains important anti-oxidants which help boost the body's immune system. Familia's cranberries are grown in the USA – the lingoberries come from Northern Europe.

Hazelnuts / Almonds
Hazelnuts and almonds contain a high proportion of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Both types of nut are roasted in their factory using a traditional method and are then selected by hand. Roasting the nuts gives them a stronger taste, which comes out wonderfully in their various müesli mixtures.
