Apples are so good for you, helping your heart, digestive system and blood sugar levels (eating an apple will not raise your levels too fast or too far). Cinnamon is also a traditional ingredient which helps with blood sugar control. This Pink Apple and Cinnamon granola from The Good Carb Company is just a great way to start your day, just add skimmed milk or yoghurt and away you go! Containing jumbo rolled oats, concentrated apple juice, rapeseed oil, air dried apple flakes, desiccated coconut, almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, golden linseeds, roast hazelnuts, walnuts, cinnamon and oligofructose, a natural soluble fibre derived from chicory — as a prebiotic, it helps to maintain a healthy digestive system). The GoodCarb Food Company was founded Dr Mick Shaw and his wife Lizi who both have a sound background in both organic farming and science.
