We have all heard that granola is a healthy option to start your day, but do you know what ingredients go into your granola? At Oatberry we pride ourselves in providing nature’s best, and here are some of our key ingredients to put you in tip-top form to thrive through your days.
Oat to joy
Oats are the basis of all our cereals, and they certainly bring a slew of benefits for you to kickstart your day! Being whole grains, oats have been hailed as a superfood, and have been found to carry a bounty of goodness, including vitamins ( B6 and E), magnesium, thiamin, folate, phytochemicals and soluble fiber. Move over multi-vitamin supplements!
Soluble fiber, or beta-glucan in particular, is firstly a prebiotic, which provides a dose of good bacteria to your gut. It naturally turns into a gel in your digestive system, keeping you satiated for longer, and has been lauded for lowering bad cholesterol. Lowered cholesterol bodes for good heart health; oats literally make your heart sing!
Let’s go coconuts
You may notice we love utilizing organic coconut oil and coconut sugar in our granola, and for good reason. Coconut sugar is known to have a lower glycemic index, which means it raises blood sugar slower than its other sugary counterparts. Coconut oil has also been shown to be high in medium chain triglycerides (MCT), which the body metabolizes differently from regular fats, increasing our caloric burn. Coconut oil is also known to increase good HDL cholesterol in our bodies.
All that being said, oils and sugars should always be used in careful amounts to ensure the optimal dose to fuel your day.
An allergy-friendly tastebuds party!
Having personally struggled with food allergies, coupled with my desire to feed my children better, Oatberry was birthed. After copious rounds of formulating and re-formulating the best granola recipes, we now proudly offer granola that is allergy-friendly, gluten-free (GF range), dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, peanut-free and vegan. Never compromising on quality, we source from only quality, trusted partners, incorporating organic sources wherever possible. You will see this in our ingredient list, for example, with our organic maple syrup.
All these components come together to bring a power-packed start to your days! Eager to get your hands on one of our 8 delicious flavors? We now have them in snack-sized portions and in sampler-box box options! (Granola) Par-tay away!
