    nope..
    it's scandinavian bran, shortened to scan bran..
    sold at classes and at Holland and Barret stores..

    resembles a cork beer mat with about the same taste.. :)

    best used in recepies or with a topping ( even says so on the pack.. )

    You can get it at class or I think Holland and Barrett do it too.

    It's best discribed as cardboard but get things moving, if you get my drift.

    I love it! Have mine with Nuttella and a cuppa tea....:rolleyes:

    I know its not ideal. But if your out and want to use it in a recipe you can sub it for like any crisp-bread and itll work just as fine (obv this affects the syns though).

    I'm in the minority I think - really nice with a laughing cow lite deli and tomato - fab for snack attacks in the evening.

    There are loads of variations on a theme.
    Malteaser cake, curlywurly cake and so on.
    There's a whole thread in the recipes section on scan bran.

    it's not all that bad if it's soaked in something ( like the juice from the tin of ravioli.. ).. but dry on it's own it's "an aquired taste" to say the least..

    It's not so much the taste I don't like as the texture, it's like having a mouthful of sawdust, or what I imagine having a mouthful of sawdust would be like, never having eaten sawdust!

    Me 2 my fave way of eating it!!

    Scan bran is like the SAS of Ryvitas lol you need plenty of water to get it down.
    I heard a saying at group this week, 'scan bran works tomorrow oat bran works today!' lol
