Welcome to Bea's Rusks

Bea’s Health Rusks started in 2007 with the desire to produce nutritional wholesome rusks as a sustainable snack. We aim at LOW GI rusks and decided to make our business rule “Ingredients as natural as possible” in an effort to cut out preservatives and additives, but also for slow release of energy. What makes us unique, is that we only bake with real butter stoneground flour and rolled oats. Our range grew to also include Gluten + Wheat Free rusks, Rye rusks, Diabetic and Low Carb rusks. The Gluten + Wheat Free rusks are tested for Gluten and we use a Allegen Statement Policy to control gluten in our products. Our rusks are not suitable for people with celiac decease. We obtain a CERTIFICATE OF ACCEPTABILITY FOR GOOD PREMISES (Regulation R918).

BEA’S RUSKS is more than just a treat with tea or coffee.  Our rusks are breakfast-on-the-run, a healthy snack between meals or a lunchbox replacement.  Rusks are self stable which makes it easy to store, to send or to use as a gift. 

The way people enjoy and appreciate our rusks, makes us passionate about baking them.

    "This morning I tasted the Bran flakes rusks @ the Willowbridge market and enjoyed them 2 bits! I bought a packet thereafter! They are delightful, enjoyable and very tasty! I could taste each and every ingredient heavenly. The butter makes it so pleasurable 2 eat. U know that packet I bought this morning is finished as I had guests that came over 4 the day. Lol! Thank u, thank u thank u!! "
