How do I prepare Pulled Oats?
The easiest way is to heat it in a frying pan with some oil or use the microwave or oven. But feel free to experiment.
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.
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 wheat and soy for different reasons. So we thought we could just as well avoid it too.
How is Pulled oats made?
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 do some of the Pulled Oats have a lot of salt?
There is only a moderate amount of added salt in the products. Legumes and oats contain naturally sodium and according to the food law, this sodium should also be indicated as salt.

The Heart Symbol tells the consumer at a glance that the product marked with this symbol is a better choice in its product group regarding fat (quantity and quality) and salt.
