What makes our oat flakes special?

We sell freshly flaked muesli. 

You may ask yourself: Why muesli and why freshly flaked?

The common oat is a true hidden champion and considered by health experts as one of the healthiest grains on earth.  Packed with minerals, vitamins, essential amino acids, and antioxidants, oats also contain a high amount of fiber and have an optimal protein composition. 

Simply put, studies have shown that regularly consuming oats promotes:

  • Healthy digestion 
  • Optimal energy balance
  • Longer satiation and controlled weight loss
  • Peak athletic performance 
  • Lower cholesterol 
  • Improved blood sugar control

So what are we doing that the other thousand muesli manufacturers aren't?

Try putting an oat grain in a glass of water and see what happens after a few days. An untreated oat grain will develop into a seedling and grow into a small plant. This living part in oats contains essential nutrients. 

SeedlingIn the conventional production of oat flakes, the grains are heated to increase shelf life and make them more durable. Many nutrients are lost in the process, as most vitamins and amino acids are sensitive to heat. Nutrient depletion continues over time as the flaked oats are exposed to light and oxygen during storage.

Conventional / industrial production & processing of flakes:

The dilemma of processed food

For this reason, we freshly flake organic naked oats ourselves. To ensure that you get the most out of what this nutritious plant has to offer, we produce to order, guaranteeing a fresh product when it arrives at your home. This extra effort takes time, but the flavourful and nutrient dense result is worth it.
