The History Of National Biscuit Day

Back when merchants and explorers began crossing the globe for trade and relocation, preservation methods for food were already well established.

 

The Ancient Greeks, Romans, Nordics, and Saxons would preserve flour-based edibles by baking them over a low heat for an extended amount of time.

 

The goal? To preserve the nutrients while removing all the moisture that generates mould.

 

Sweet treats were invented by the Persians, who began adding sugar, honey, jams, and other sweetened ingredients to their biscuits to enhance the flavour and provide nutrition, yet still remain edible over long journeys and in rather damp conditions across the seas.

DID YOU KNOW?

Physicians in ancient times firmly believed – just as Correxiko does that good health starts in the gut.

As a result, biscuits were prescribed for all sorts of nasty tummy problems that a nutritious meal could solve. High in fiber and low in fats, these biscuits were predominantly made from whole grains.

 

Continuing on this tradition for National Biscuit Day 2021, this delicious, quick-n-easy oatmeal, honey, and quinoa biscuit recipe – with a Correxiko Collagen twist! – is sure to tick all the right health boxes this year!
