After more than a year of research and development, we are pleased to bring you all the qualities of a Greek yogurt, smooth and creamy, without dairy products. 100% plant-based, with 3% fat, it’s made from certified gluten-free oats grown in Canada. The selected oat has the advantage of being healthy and nutritious as well as being a sustainable and eco-friendly crop. Indeed, oat crop require 10% less water than soya, and 95% less water than almond!
Enriched with plant-based protein (it contains 13 g of protein per 175 g serving for the plain version and 11 g for the other flavours), the new Greek-style is high in probiotics with multiple benefits for intestinal health, essential to a healthy system. Easy-to-digest, it’s a good source of calcium, a source of fibre and energy, in addition to being enriched with vitamins A, B12 and D. It’s also cholesterol and preservatives free, as well as free from artificial colours and flavours.
