I’m working my way through a package of New World Natural Foods organic, barley malt granola. It’s slow going.
I liked all of the things that the packaging had to say:
- Locally made here in BC
- High fibre
- Low sodium
- No sugar added
What I can’t get past is the crunchy chew. I don’t mean the traditional crunchy granola texture that’s a result of a toasted, sugar coating. I mean a crunchy, the-oats-didn’t-quite-get-cooked-through texture. Like rice that’s taken off the stove too soon and is still crunchy inside.
Maybe that’s what they were going for, but I like even my healthy food not to wear out my jaw.
On the upside, New World is pretty conscientious about their product. They source locally as much as possible, pack in recyclable or biodegradable containers, add no processed sugar and very little salt.
And I recognize and can pronounce everything on the list of ingredients.
