Pulled Oats is made of Nordic oats, faba beans and yellow peas. The process we use to make it is completely mechanical (such as mixing, pressing and heating), which means we don't need to use any chemicals or additives. However, we do add some stuff to our flavoured versions, but that's only pure spices, herbs, fruits and vegetables. If it tastes like basil, tomato or lime, it's because we've added real basil, tomato or lime.
