Finnish company Gold & Green have released a plant-based protein made from oats.

The company’s pulled oats are a versatile alternative to other options like jackfruit or soy.


Gold & Green’s website says that the new protein “has minimal impact on the environment, is locally produced, contains fibers and minerals and more protein than chicken, including all essential amino acids, but doesn’t have a trace of additives or animals in it, and upon all that tastes delicious.”

The pulled oats have about 30 grams of protein and five grams of fat. The products are also GMO-free.

According to Gold & Green, the protein doesn’t taste like oatmeal, but has a mild and tender taste. The company recommends using their pulled oats as the base of meals like salads, stir fries, and even hot dogs.

They’re also available in tomato and ginger flavors.
