A semi-sweet biscuit made from coarse brown flour. Biscuits of this type are made in many countries and sold under various names - 'digestive' is outlawed in the U.S.A. as the name has misleading implications. Digestive biscuits are popular in their own right and also with cheese. While versions are also marketed which have been dipped on one side with either milk or plain chocolate.
