All muesli mixes contain pellets. These are composed of ingredients that have been ground down and compressed. The exact composition of the pellets in muesli mixes is not given. They are often a variety of sizes and colours. Pellets are cheaper to produce than extrusions. A vitamin and mineral supplement is necessary for muesli mixes in order to balance out the deficiencies in the ingredients. As the supplement is a powder, it is usually incorporated into the pellets. The pellets are the least palatable part of the mixture and is often left in the bottom of the bowl, complete with the vitamin and mineral supplement.
