Birchermuesli is a traditional food created in Switzerland around 1900 by Dr. Maximilian Bircher-Benner. Believing that the diet of cereals, fruits and vegetables is better for humans than a heavy meat-based diet, he created birchmesses with a composition of oats, fruits, nuts, lemon juice and condensed milk for patients in his sanatorium in Zurich. This food is still eaten until now and not only eaten at breakfast, but sometimes even at night.
