Bran is the indigestible layer which surrounds grains such as wheat, maize and oats. It plays an important part in the diet and is an excellent source of fibre. Bran is available in a range of breakfast cereals at Waitrose including Waitrose Perfectly Balanced High Fibre Bran (wheat bran cereal), Weetabix Crunchy Bran (wheat, maize and oat bran cereal), Kelloggs Healthwise Oat Bran Flakes and Waitrose bran flakes (wheatflakes with added wheat bran).

Uses: Serve bran-based cereals with milk or yogurt and fresh or dried fruit.

To store: Store in a cool dry place for up to 6 months and consume by the use by date.
