A cereal mixture, usually served for breakfast with milk or yoghurt, and developed in Switzerland, by Dr Bircher-Benner around the beginning of the 20th century. A typical mixture contains the likes of barley flakes, millet, oats, rye, dried fruit and nuts.
The name is derived from the Swiss-German word 'mus', meaning pulpy food/puree - this, in tern, is related to the Old English word for food - 'mos'.
