    I think they say add scan bran because of the fibre content in quick oats is not as high as regular porridge, I have porridge on some days and for speed in the morning, I weigh it and measure my milk the night before and put the bowl in the fridge - then in the morning 2 -3 mins in the microwave and you have almost instant porridge with more fibre x

    I agree with Sandra, if you had more porridge it would take the calorie content higher for the same amount of fibre in porridge + scan bran. Why not go for proper oats, it takes only 10 minutes to cook. I use the Waitrose brand with added wheatbran.

    I use Scotts Old Fashioned oats and they take just over three minutes in the microwave.

    That's not much more time than "instant" oats, and a lot cheaper.

    The scan bran increases the fibre content in the porridge to make it a B choice. Without it there is not enough to qualify as a B choice.
    I never have the scan though - naughty girl!!

    there are lots of B choices without any fibre eg olive oil,fish & cheese. I think it is more about making sure you are full up so you don't snack in between.
