Australian muesli brand Sunsol has launched a probiotic toasted muesli range and will give consumers the chance to try the new flavours in events around the country.

The Sunsol Muesli Markets will take place in Sydney's World Square and Melbourne's Southbank in July to sample Sunsol's latest probiotic toasted muesli range, meanwhile there will also be sampling stands in selected Coles supermarkets across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Available in two flavours – Almond, Cashew and Chia, and Almond and Manuka Honey – the new range comes as a result of growing consumer awareness of gut health, and features natural and organic probiotic ingredient GanedenBC30, which supports digestive and immune health.

Select Harvests health food category and business manager Wayne McIndoe says: “At Sunsol we’re committed to creating innovative products that celebrate the best of what Australian produce has to offer, so we’re thrilled to bring to life the Sunsol probiotic toasted muesli range in an Australian first.

Advancements in probiotics mean we have been able to create a unique product that delivers the benefits of protein and fibre boosted with probiotics.”

The new Sunsol probiotic toasted muesli (400g) is now available in Coles supermarkets for RRP $7.00 and will be showcased alongside other Sunsol products at the Sunsol Muesli Markets in Sydney from 2-3 July and in Melbourne from 10-11 July.
