OK, don't panic. I don't know where you stay, but it is possible the local supermarkets in your area only stock Fibre Bran Breakfast Cereals (seeing that these products contained sugar, etc). So now you will have to ask at a health shop or at a large chemist such as Dischem. Keep on looking for 'Wheat bran' or 'Digestive bran' which should have a high dietary fibre content and not contain any sugar. It may help to go to the Manager at your local supermarkets and to ask him/her specifically to help you find 'Digestive or Wheat Bran' for sprinkling on top of foods or into shakes. I promise to check tomorrow where the 'Digestive/Wheat' bran' is kept in some local supermarkets and what the brand names are. If I can find some for you, I will post a new answer to this question, so keep an eye open.
Hi, I went to my local Spar yesterday and on the Health Food shelves they have a big variety of Nature's Choice products, including "Nature's Choice Digestive Bran" which sells at R12.99 for 250g. Per 100g it contains: Energy 1904 kJ, 10.5 g plant protein, 51.7 g carbohydrate of which 5.9 g is insoluble dietary fibre and 24.3 g of fat.
I hope this helps?
