Origin and history of the Bircher muesli
We have the Swiss doctor Dr Maximilian Bircher-Benner to thank for this wonderful muesli variant. He was first served the muesli at an alpine hut and then developed it into a dietary food for his patients.
Bircher-Benner is considered a pioneer of wholefood products. To this day his teachings are decisive for wholefood nutrition. Thanks to him, this diet has gained general recognition in modern nutrition science.
By the way, the Swiss word “mues” means small mush, from which the more common word muesli is derived. Bircher muesli was named after its discoverer Bircher-Benner. As a breakfast, the former diet food is now known and loved all over the world.
