If you wish. You can use it instead of minced meat, pulled pork or chicken in most recipes. It has more fibres and protein than meat, and compared to other plant proteins (such as soy or seitan) it has a firm and tender texture, that soaks up the flavours and gets a nice chewiness.

What makes Pulled Oats® a “perfect protein”?
Oats combined with legumes is the signature base of all our products. This unique combination enables high-quality products that are naturally nutritious: naturally high in protein and iron, source of fibre and low in saturated fat. We believe that a "perfect protein" should be delicious, nutritious & easy to use – and on top of all that, good for the planet. Our hero product Pulled Oats® Nude is not only rich in protein (30 %), but it also contains all nine essential amino acids, which makes it a so called "balanced protein". Amino acids are the building blocks of our body. Some of the amino acids are produced by our body, but some of the essential amino acids should come from our diet.
Why are amino acids so important?
Simply put: Amino acids are the building blocks in your body. There are many kinds of amino acids. Most of them can be created by the body itself, but not the nine so called "essential" ones. They need to come from our diet. When following a plant-based diet, it's important to use diverse sources of protein (cereals & legumes) to get all the essential amino acids. The unique combination of oats & legume proteins is the signature base of all Gold&Green products. We have analysed the amino acid composition of our hero product Pulled Oats® Nude and it is not only naturally rich in protein (30 %), but it also contains all nine essential amino acids, which makes it a so called "balanced protein".
