Paleo Pure is a Melbourne brand designed by Naturopath Nicole DiPietro-Case and self confessed muesli lover Emma Risvanis. To quote Emma and Nicole, “our crunchy, oven baked grain free muesli is made by hand using organic ingredients in small batches, so we can ensure it tastes amazing, every single time. It is perfect for those following a Paleo lifestyle, people with gluten sensitivity or those just wanting good, clean food.”

Paleo Pure’s Low Fructose Fruit Free is packed full of nutrition from the nuts, seeds and coconut flakes. It contains over 50% good fats, 14% protein, and only 8.9% sugar, which is an ideal way to start your day. Remember, nourishment, satiety and blood sugar control come from good fats, moderate protein and low sugar, and is the key to stable energy, hormonal control and weight management. The added benefit is that you avoid the dreaded blood sugar – insulin roller coaster, and your need for constant snacking dissipates. Yes, it is a myth that you need to eat every two hours. The aim of eating is to fuel well and not need food for at least four hours, to give your digestive system a break and to allow for fat adaptation to occur on a daily basis.
Taste wise, Paleo Pure hits the spot. I love to sprinkle a tablespoon or two on top of a smoothie bowl and remove the bag from my sight, as it’s quite the test for portion control.
As a “cereal”, I really love the entire concept of Paleo Pure, but at $50 per kilo it’s best as a back-up plan for busy mornings, or when making the transition to homemade versions like my Gluten Free and Sugar Free Granola.

And what about the rest of the range?
Two words: highly addictive. I’ve tried the Cranberry & Nutmeg Muesli and it’s a taste sensation. The maple syrup is paleo, but at 40% fructose it’s more of a “sometimes food”. This version is also 12.3% sugar, and starting to get too high to be considered “breakfast”. Again, far better than our traditional options, but not as healthy as it could be.
Overall Paleo Pure is one of the best store-bought “cereals” I’ve tried. Congratulations Emma and Nicole.*Find out why rice malt syrup is our preferred sweetener of choice here.
