    Some of the tempting recipes on the forum use Scan brans. When I asked my leader about these she said they are an old product and that we couldn't use them. So can I get hold of them, and if so where?
    Thanks :)

    they're like carpet tiles!

    i ate some for my lunch once and i actually wretched whilst chewing them because they're so dry! i managed to drink about 1.5 litres of water with them to try and wash them down...it was more of a ordeal than a meal! lol

    If you check out the recipe thread there are some scrummy cakes you can make with scan bran, i wouldn't eat them straight out of the pack, but i always use them to make the parkin cake, which i have with yoghurt and some raspberries, yummy!!:D

    my consultant has just started selling them. Some of the guys tell me that they are not very nice - they say it is better to use allbran or ryvita. I have never tried them though
