Gold&Green releases new Pulled Oats ingredient range
Gold&Green, the Nordic company behind plant-based protein Pulled Oats, has released a new ingredient range for manufacturers.
With plant-based sales exploding by 243% during the pandemic and health conscious shoppers reportedly putting 14% more products in their baskets, the launch from Gold&Green allows manufacturers to swap their meat ingredients with the revolutionary plant-based protein and meet the demands for healthy, green and clean ready-meals and snacks.
With just five ingredients and no soy, Pulled Oats by Gold&Green is a mix of oats, fava beans, and peas. 100% natural and vegan approved by the Vegetarian Society, the meat alternative reportedly tastes great and is packed with more protein and nutrition than chicken and beef, as well as other meat alternative ingredients.
Speaking about Pulled Oats, Simon Solway, country manager, OOH UK and IRE said: “It’s never been a more challenging time for manufacturers to meet the demand of consumers who want unprocessed, nutritional and satisfying options. The arrival of Pulled Oats by Gold&Green means there is a soy-free, clean and green meat-free solution for manufacturers looking to give their ready meals, snacks and food-to-go portfolio some pure pulling power. With an unbeatable range, great texture, as well as a mild and tender taste, Pulled Oats is the easy way to offer healthy, nutritious and filling plant-based products that will boost sales.”
The range includes: Pulled Oats Perfect Protein Granules – dehydrated, they are reportedly ideal for adding texture and nutrition to pie and pastry fillings, updating consumer favourites such as Bolognese or Mexican chilis, as well as packing out bakery products; Pulled Oats Perfect Protein Flakes – also dehydrated, they can be used in popular granola bars and ready meals, and Pulled Oats Mince can be used for sauces and pizza toppings, as well as Pulled Oats Burger Patties.
Pre-cooked, the entire Pulled Oats range can be eaten hot or cold and used in dry or ready-cooked dishes, which Gol&Green says makes them ideal for sandwiches, wraps, food-to-go and ready meals. Non-flavoured, the absorbent oats take on the flavour of any cuisine from Italian and Indian to Chinese.
Solway commented: “Gold&Green is the perfect partner for manufacturers looking for plant-based products and solutions that are as nutritional, as they are sustainable. Our Pulled Oats are pure goodness, with absolutely no additives. With Pulled Oats you can easily add more nutrition into your ready meals and snacks – including protein, fibre, minerals and antioxidants – plus you’re making your offering greener and better for the planet.”
