Many healthy food advocates choose to prepare their own breakfast muesli. A mixture of cereals, dried fruits, nuts, bran, seeds, sprouts and other ingredients is considered very beneficial to the body.
Muesli can be either raw or baked. Raw muesli consists of thermally unprocessed foods. At the same time, muesli baked during the production process are mixed and baked with juice, honey, yogurt. They can be crumbly or pressed. Bars “Roots” are exactly the same pressed and baked muesli. Meanwhile, regardless of the form of release, their benefits do not diminish.
The history of the “Roots” bars
The history of the “Roots” bars began back in 1900 with the preparation of a tasty and healthy mixture of muesli by a Swiss doctor, which he offered to taste the patients of his clinic. They became especially popular in the 60s of the same century, and 10 years later the first bar in the world based on a mixture of cereals, nuts and dried fruits was made in America.
It was these events that prompted the creation of the Corny bar. It happened in 1984 at a confectionery factory in the city of Bad Schwartau (Germany), where delicious and healthy “Roots” bars, known all over the world, have been produced for many years. To this day, all products of the brand pass the strictest quality control for compliance with high European requirements.
