Walkers Shortbread will add a new higher fiber offering to its range of delicious and healthful oatcakes and unveil fresh new packaging at the Summer Fancy Food Show: Thick & Crunchy Oatcakes with Bran. Using a wholegrain bran oatcake recipe with no added sugar and containing only naturally occurring sugars, the new offering includes olive oil in its blend, contains no trans fat and is low in saturated fat. The improved product has no added sugar and uses only naturally occurring sugars. Its new oil blend reduces saturated fat by 40% and the wholegrain oats have 21% more fiber. Oatcakes have been a traditional Scottish staple for centuries. The popular Walkers Oatcakes, baked in the village of Aberlour in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, are made from naturally wholesome wholegrain oats high in cholesterol fighting fiber. They all contain only naturally occurring sugars, are suitable for vegetarians, and are certified kosher OUD. Walkers was founded in 1898 and is the leading brand of food exported from Scotland. The family continues to operate its original retail shop in Aberlour in the Highlands to stay in touch with its roots. For more information and to purchase visit: www.walkersshortbread.com.
