Bran is the husk, or outer layer, of all cereals, although wheat bran is the most common bran sold commercially. Bran is usually separated from the grain during the milling process of flour production. It is a valuable source of fiber and is an added ingredient in many breakfast cereals. It is also sold simply as bran, which can be used to enrich breads, muffins and tea breads, or it can be toasted and used in muesli.
