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.
Why don’t you use soy or wheat?
Two reasons. The first is because our product simply is better the way we do it today, with just oats, faba beans and peas. Regarding flavour as well as texture, nutrition and the environment. The other reason is that many people want to avoid gluten and soy for different reasons. So we thought we could just as well avoid it too.
Is Pulled Oats a meat replacement?
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. Pulled Oats has significantly lower loss in cooking compared to meats. Pulled Oats raw protein content is higher than meat, thus to create similar nutrition profile to product you need less of ingredient (up to 30%)

Healthiness & Nutrition
Is pulled oats vegan?
Yes, one hundred percent.
Is Pulled Oats organic?
We want our products to have as little impact on the environment as possible. That's why we use Nordic oats and beans, and responsibly manufactured, traceable peas from Europe (until we can get them too from local producers). Unfortunately we can't say that we're one hundred percent organic, since all the ingredients we need aren't available as organic.
Where do the oats and beans of Pulled Oats grow?
The Pulled Oats® is made from European clean source oats and beans. All raw materials are coming from audited traceable suppliers in Europe and mostly from the Nordic region.
What makes Pulled Oats a perfect protein?
Pulled Oats is not only rich in protein (over 30%), but it also contains all nine essential amino acids, which makes it a so called "complete protein". Pulled Oats is made from the unique combination of oats and legumes and is thereby a high-quality plant protein that is naturally rich in iron, low in saturated fat and contains fibre, potassium and all the essential amino acids in sufficient amounts.
Why are amino acids so important?
All proteins are not the same. Unlike many other plant proteins, the protein in our products contains a sufficient amount of all the essential amino acids necessary for human nutrition. Amino acids are the building blocks of our 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, preferably via a delicious meal made of Pulled Oats.
