The majority of the nutritional information comes from the USDA (US Department of Agriculture). This means that the information for natural products is often incomplete or only given within broader categories, whereas in most cases products made from these have more complete information displayed.

If we take flaxseed, for example, the important essential amino acid ALA (omega-3) is only included in an overarching category whereas for flaxseed oil ALA is listed specifically. In time, we will be able to change this, but it will require a lot of work. An “i” appears behind ingredients that have been adjusted and an explanation appears when you hover over this symbol.

For Erb Muesli, the original calculations resulted in 48 % of the daily requirement of ALA — but with the correction, we see that the muesli actually covers >100 % of the necessary recommendation for the omega-3 fatty acid ALA. Our goal is to eventually be able to compare the nutritional value of our recipes with those that are used in conventional western lifestyles.

Notes about recipe

This is a basic recipe that you can add other types of fruits and vegetables as well as spices to as desired.

Hass avocados: These are the queen of avocados. They are round and have a thick, bumpy skin that turns a purplish black color as the fruit ripens. Hass avocados are smaller than Fuerte avocados, which are actually the most common type of avocado. Hass avocados have a rich, nutty taste. You can tell whether or not they are ripe from their color and firmness. They are pear-shaped and are dark green when ripe. Unripe avocados are usually light green, and if they have a very dark color, it usually means that they are overripe. If you place an avocado in your hand and it yields to gentle pressure, this is a sign that it is ripe.


Remove strings: We recommend that you remove the strings from the celery stalks as this makes for a smoother soup. To do this, it works best to use a knife or peeler. Position it at the base of the stalk, where the strings begin and then carefully peel off the strings along the length of the celery rib.

Alternate preparation

Alternatives for cucumber and parsley: You can use zucchini instead of cucumber. And cilantro or dill taste very good in place of the parsley
