A few people have mentioned Sanitarium. The brand ELFIN comes to mind. Did Sanitarium make the ELFIN products, can anyone remember ???

you're right. The Vimax refers to vi(tamin)max. Vitamin B, and wheat germ implied. Even the remembered texture has (to me) a wheatgermy aspect to it. Likewise the taste.

Some kids got heatspots with it.

I remember it well. The vi part of vimax name refers to vitamin. In this case vitamin B, because of added wheat germ.

One aspect of vimax was that it might cause heatspots in some children. A problem in larger families.

Hi Nessie
No Vimax was a fine ground nutty porridge. It was delicious.

Maybe the weevils were the secret ingredient that gave it that nutty flavour ??????.

Ditto!! I think it consisted of finely ground oats. I loved it! Probably could recreate it in a nutribullet? I was reminded of vimax today when I tried ceres rice cereal. I think it has the same consistency.

Does anyone remember the brand it was made under.
Elfin comes to mind but not sure if it was Vimax or just flour.

Hi Debbie, I have a CWA 1950 cookbook and it has a recipe for Lemon Beer. Would this be similar?

I loved it - I think a mix of ground oatmeal and wheat germ is very similar - I did make it a few years ago myself but I'm now trying to remember how

I will try Margarets suggestion of 2 tablespoons of wheat germ and 1/3 cup oat bran and report back. It’s still summer where I live so it won’t be for 2 or 3. months but I’ll get back to you. I would really like to recreate that nutty taste of Vimax

Yes, my mum used to buy it too in the 70s in NZ. It was delicious. I've tried to find it to no avail.

Hi Jude,
I too came to the net to look for Vi-max porridge. I miss it and still think about it often. I’ve read all the comments and I think it’s possible it was made from wheat germ rather than ground oats. If it was made of oats then it would have tasted like the rolled oat porridge. I’m sure it's more likely to have been wheat germ as it has a nutty taste or is it possible it was bran based. Can anyone throw a bit more light on this please.

I can solve your porridge dilemma! I loved Vimax way back in the 50’s & 60’s but this is what u do to get the same taste today. Mix wheat germ with normal porridge, a little more porridge than wheat germ. Yum!! Enjoy??.

I found in one of my mother's old recipe books that Vi-Max porridge had added wheat germ. I mix 2 tbps of wheat germ to a 1/3 cup of oat bran (not oatmeal) and the outcome is pretty close to Vi-Max porridge.
