Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Bircher

Updated: Mar 30, 2020

Who doesn't love bircher?! It's one of the easiest meals to prepare (throw yummy things in a bowl and soak overnight) that totally delivers on flavour.

The gut health spin on this recipe is the inclusion of grated apple. Apple is naturally very high in pectin with the highest concentrations in the skins, cores and seeds. Pectin is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (a type of carbohydrate) that contains a good amount of soluble fibre

Are you having tummy troubles and issues tolerating fibre yet no-one has been able to tell you what's wrong?

Research shows pectin helps increase viscosity and volume of stool meaning it can help regulate both constipation and diarrhoea (1). It is also shown to have benefits in regulating blood sugar (2), weight management (3) and can support healthy detoxification (4).
