Let's Talk About OATS!
Lets talk about OATS!
Oats are almost synonymous with granola and it's a no brainer since they are the base of most granolas and make up the bulk of it's ingredients. Oats make in a appearance in all our oat blends including the Sunset Blend, the Cluster Blend, the Savory Blend, as well as our granola bars!
We make sure to always use the best of the best when it comes to our ingredients and oats are no expectation. Did you know that all oats are 100% naturally gluten-free? Yet some oats that are sold in stores are not gluten-free, What's the deal with that?
Historically, farmers have grown, harvested and processed all their grains using the same machinery, which meant oats were inadvertently getting contaminated with gluten. In more recent times more and more people have begun to notice sensitivities, intolerance and allergies to gluten. To accommodate for this new found trend farmers and manufactures have taken note and have created the 'Purity Protocol Oats'!
Purity Protocol Oats are oats that are grown, harvest, processed and transported through strict protocols to ensure they are 100% gluten free- as they should be!
We believe in ensuring our products are 100% gluten-free which is why we only use Purity Protocol Oats in all of our oat-based products!
Oats are also super healthy and a perfect way to start any day. Whether you are a going for a big run, hitting the waves, doing a yoga flow, or working from home oats will keep you full for hours will all the right nutrients.
