A healthier lifestyle is a goal worth striving for. Everyone agrees. That was already the case at the end of the 19th century, but nobody was sure how to reach it.
Opinions differed widely. The industrial revolution resulted in more strenuous living conditions and efforts were made to compensate for these. A healthier lifestyle was the solution. But the doctors of that time, but also the Christian institutions, had their own answers to the question of how this could be achieved. While some recommended a high-protein diet, others moved closer to a whole-food vegetarian diet. This consisted of lots of raw foods and minimally processed grain products. It was at this time that members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church got together to produce and distribute healthy vegetarian foods. The “German Association for Health Care” (DE-VAU-GE Gesundkostwerk Deutschland GmbH) that came into being in this way concentrated on the production of traditional and extremely nutritious cereals made from wheat, barley and rice. We have preserved this tradition to this day and create our current muesli and crunchy flake variations on this basis.
