Digestive Health lives up to its promise
Started taking because of diverticulitis, bloating and constipation. Found the product tasteless and dry and unappealing. Nearly threw it out but decided to try boiling it in the micowave for 3 minutes then putting in fridge overnight. Served cold with greek yogurt, milk and fruit and it was delicious. Have been on it for a week and am starting to enjoy the benefits. It worries me that the product is so dry and an alternative method needs to be suggested as many will just throw it out, My husband is now also enjoying it in the new method. Please get the message out...
Goodness Superfood - Heart
I've been enjoying this product for quite a few years. I started eating the Digestive product but swapped the Heart product as I found it more enjoyable.
I started eating the cereal after reading about it's development by the CSIRO. I suffered from occasional bouts of bloating and diverticulitis.
I have 1/2 cup each morning with Greek yoghurt, blueberries and a sprinkle on probiotic called Garnet Plum. Occasionally add LSA if I remember!
I am very satisfied with the efficacy of this cereal in helping me overcome my digestive problems. I n...ow buy it in bulk lots online as it's slightly cheaper, but recently I did a price check and Woolworths price is pretty good. I usually shop at Coles or Aldi, but as neither of them stock it I'll go out of my way to WW.
I recently purchased the goodness super foods barley wrap only to discover that upon opening the packet to have one for my lunch all of them were mouldy and i was unable to eat them. This product is not cheap and the expiry date was 20 February 2017 so you would think that it should not be mouldy. Totally disappointed shall not be buying there products again.
Packed with fibre and not too sweet
This cereal is really enjoyable, especially because the sugar content is quite low so it doesn't have an overwhelmingly sweet taste. The resistant starch and soluble fibre content is great - better than bran which is almost entirely composed on insoluble fibre. The only qualm I have is that it is quite expensive, and rarely on sale.
My wife brought home a box and we tried it it - hated it at first as its quite chewy with a slight burnt taste. But atfer a few days surprisingly I grew to love it. It definitely has a big affect on your digestion with flatulence, extra throughput etc. I feel thinner and better already, and look forward to longer term results. Finally I eat cereal daily again.
Very high fibre.
I love the cereal.
Love the Protein variety. However I love even more the porridge. It's great in winter. I cool it down with frozen blueberries. It fills me up all morning so I don't feel like snacking plus I feel like I'm doing something nice and healthy for my body and general health.
It's good for me
Bit tasteless without added fruit
Please, change back to the old digestive 1
Please, change back to the old digestive 1. That was good. Now its like the sweepings of the bottom of the bird cage. The old Whole flakes took longer to brake down. But the new small crumbs go straight though you. How could you let something so good, go to something so bad.
It's good for me
It's contents is to small in size
A great product spoiled.
I really enjoyed the original Digestive 1 cereal and would have rated it as excellent. However recently they completely changed the formula, flavour and texture. Now I would not use it as chook food. How could a company change a product so radically and still present it in the same packet. If they changed Marmite like that it would cause a revolution.
Healthy, high in fibre.
Flavour, texture, boring
Yummy and very enjoyable. Digestive 1 is the only reason that I eat cereal it is very enjoyable and filling. Only cereal ever that I have not experienced bloating after eating it. My energy levels are much better and I don't crave that bit of chocolate mid morning after eating Digestive 1.
Best cereal ever.
The best cereal I have eaten in all my 60+ years. Crunchy and flavoursome.
I tried Digestive 1st as a change from my boring high fibre cereal for a change. It is pleasant on the palate and I do not feel queasy after eating it. I would recommend it for anyone who is seeking a high fibre, low GI breakfast food. It does not sit heavy on the stomach.
Very flavoursome, value for money
