Would also like to know this. I'm diabetic type 1 and rather miss my muesli in the morning.

This is mostly* sugar-free. As in it's not what is called Swiss-style muesli (Alpen and clones) with added sugar and milk powder.
However, it has 40% dried fruits (plus 6.5% nuts and 3.5% pumkin seeds to reach their stated 50% fruit and nuts), and that's where most of the natural (fruit) sugar comes from. Raisins/sultanas are about 60% natural sugar, dates are 65% or so:
en.wikipedia.org/wik…sin
en.wikipedia.org/wik…alm
The seeds and nuts are between 4% and 6.5% sugar. Oats, barley and malted flakes between 0.3% and 1.5%. Dried coconut around 6.4%.
The only added sugar is for pineapple, banana chips and papaya which are 'dried sweetened'. Those make up 13% of the final product and in their natural unsweetened state they're about still over 50% fruit sugar.
If you look up natural sugar contents of all the ingredients, you still end up at over 22% sugar. This is 25.4% sugar so around 3% extra has been added by those 3 being 'dried sweetened'.

Thank you



You're welcome.
A few months ago I considered making my own muesli and as Lidl are so nice as to list almost all the % of theirs (and as it's a fairly good quality muesli), I had taken that into a spreadsheet to see how much it would cost me make my own muesli. As the cost of the ingredients of this came to over £2 even with shopping around vs £1.69 (Lidl's normal price for this), I gave it a miss. But I still had that spreadsheet so it was easy for me to lookup the various ingredients and calculate how much sugar each contains.

EDIT: but to make it healthier and lower GI I now add extra rye flakes.

Done the same with Greek yoghurt recently
59p 1 litre of milk pasteurised (using fresh pain in butt heating and waiting the cleaning pan so not worth the saving )

Then either 55p starter pot or 60p dried culture after streaming making the same 500g pot costing £1.20, Greek costing £1.55 at Asda for example

You can save money on next patch by taking some out before straining for next but never tend to do this

Another thing that's not worth the hassle, need to be around to take out of strainer after 3-6 hours otherwise it go to thick and end up with 300g yoghurt cheese
