Bircher – Fruit –
Now available in Germany also in 500 g
For connoisseurs, Bircher is more than a muesli – it is a declaration of belief in breakfast.
In 2015 Kölln already launched Muesli Bircher – Fruit – in a 1.7 kg bag on the German market. Conceived as a convenient basis for individually refined Bircher variations on the breakfast buffets in hotels etc., this muesli variety has established itself successfully and will now be brought to German retail shelves in a classic 500 g package in May 2018.
It was not by chance that Dr. Bircher-Benner chose oats as the basis for his famous invention: muesli. For oats with their nutty aromatic flavour are the ideal breakfast cereal and a clever basis for a delightful breakfast experience. While the majority of the products on the market offer rather firm fruit mueslis as "Bircher", we take the original form of preparation of the Swiss original seriously: Kölln® Bircher is based on a smooth texture and provides the perfect basis for a tender breakfast porridge to refine.
Kölln® Bircher can of course also be enjoyed just pure as a muesli with milk – a fruity wholegrain pleasure which scores with 75% wholegrain oat flakes and 22% fruits. The addition of nuts and honey emphasizes the style of Bircher-Benner's recipe.
· Convenient basis according to the traditional delicious recipe in well-known Kölln® quality
· Can be freshly refined in a few simple steps according to individual taste
· Also fruity delicious if consumed pure with milk
Good to know:
The classic Bircher muesli comes from Switzerland and was recommended as a gentle dietary food by the doctor and diet reformer Dr. Maximilian Oskar Bircher-Benner around 1900. For his Bircher mueslis he used oat flakes soaked in water overnight which he prepared with a little lemon juice, honey, nuts and condensed milk. Furthermore, a grated apple is an ingredient of this classic recipe. Bircher-Benner is still considered a pioneer of wholefood.
New: Tender Oat Mueslis – gluten-free
Now available in Germany
More and more people cannot or do not want to eat gluten. With a significantly lower gluten content and a different protein structure than, for example, wheat, oats offer the best conditions for a gluten-free diet. If the entry of other grains into the product is consistently avoided from seed to packaging, oats are considered "gluten-free". Following the successful introduction of White Oats gluten-free, Kölln now presents two tender gluten-free oat mueslis.
Tender Kölln® Muesli Wholegrain Fruit & Oats – gluten-free – and tender Kölln® Muesli Chocolate & Oats – gluten-free – stand for typical muesli delight from Kölln. Together with White Oats gluten-free they belong to the few wholegrain products for a gluten-free diet and offer a good opportunity to make the gluten-free diet more varied and refined. Both mueslis are not only a delicious breakfast but also suitable for the preparation of gluten-free breads, cakes and cookies.

NEW: White Oats gluten-free!
Our all-time favourite – White Oats now also gluten-free!
Gluten is a natural protein found in certain cereals such as wheat, rye, spelt, oats, barley and green spelt, but also in emmer and kamut as the original form of wheat. Gluten is contained in many foods (bread, pasta products, ready meals, confectionery, beverages, spices, etc.) but also, for example, in medicines, toothpaste and cosmetics.
The protein structure of oats differs significantly from wheat gluten. In addition, oats contain the protein avenin (avena, lat. = oats) which contains less celiac effective prolamin than wheat.
For those who cannot or do not want to eat gluten, tender White Oats gluten-free with their nutty flavour offer many ways for a more varied and refined diet. To avoid the entry of other grains into the product, we proceed with special care – including the selection of the seeds and the packaging. This is why we realise our gluten-free oat flakes with selected partners, with whom we have maintained a trustful cooperation for many years.
What does UTZ Certified mean?
When you buy UTZ Certified coffee, cocoa or tea you are helping build a better future. The word "UTZ” originates from the Mayan language and means “good”.
UTZ Certified stands for sustainable farming and better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet. The UTZ programme enables farmers to learn better farming methods, improve working conditions and take better care of their children and the environment.
Through the UTZ programme farmers grow better crops, generate more income and create better opportunities while safeguarding the environment and securing the earth’s natural resources.
Kölln is supporting this sustainable programme and uses chocolate from 100% UTZ Certified cocoa (standard: Mass Balance) for all Kölln mueslis and cereals containing chocolate since the end of 2012.
