Grains of truth

Often seen simply as bulking agents in cooking, grains can sometimes get overlooked. In reality there are a multitude of deliciously different varieties out there that not only add texture and flavour, they can boost the nutrient content in your dishes, too. It's time to get to grips with a world of grains

Different types of grains

Know your grains

Chia
A totally vegan source of protein, fibre and wholegrain goodness, chia seeds make a great addition to salads or porridge. Mix with almond or coconut milk and top with fresh berries and nuts to make a brilliant breakfast pudding.

Linseed
For a wholegrain boost and a vegan source of omega-3, we’ve added linseeds to our new in store Nourish Bowls, as well as to the bread used for our vegan super greens sandwich.

Sorghum
This ancient wholegrain is similar in texture to pearl barley. Gluten free and a source of protein and fibre, it makes an interesting alternative to quinoa. Try it in our vitality Nourish Bowl.

Grains for every meal

Breakfast
With five nutritious wholegrains in every box, our cranberry and blueberry great grains with puffed quinoa cereal will get you off to a good start.
