A rusk is a food that we encounter from ancient times until today. It's a form of dry and crunchy bread that has received twice the usual exposure to fire (in a stove). Its recipe resulted from the need for rural families, where the wife was also busy being involved in agricultural work, was not able to knead fresh bread on a daily basis. Therefore, she used to knead a large quantity of bread once, which was then consumed fresh as long as it could last (2-3 days) and the rest was roasted a second time in the oven, in order to expel excess moisture and last even more. There is a large variety of rusks that are produced from different kinds of flours.
Made with simple ingredients, rusks have a high nutritional value as they contain plenty of fiber, B vitamins, vitamin E, and micronutrients. No preservatives, no chemical additives. A product low in fat, but highly filling and digestible because of its high fiber content. One portion of the product contains half the amount of salt compared to one portion of bread. The mini round whole wheat rusks are small in size and are suitable for those who want to eat small meals during the day. Its shape provides the ideal base for imaginative small meals as you can garnish these mini rusks with any toppings you desire. Just choose the right ingredients and create a fast and perfectly balanced meal for every moment of the day.
Their crisp texture makes them an ideal companion for one or more main meals during the day. They can also be enjoyed as a tasty snack in combination with other ingredients, since they are rich in fiber that helps in feeling full more quickly. This, in combination with the right choice of accompanying foods at each meal is the key to a well balanced diet.
