These organic rolled oats are "Naked Oats" (avena nuda), they are an alternative oat variety that have been grown for thousands of year. They are called this because the hull separates easily from the grain. They are known for their unique flavour and for being higher in nutrients than the traditional oats that you might find in a grocery store.
These oats come from a wonderful family farm in Manitoba where they maintain natural ecosystems to promote biodiversity, and use sustainable crop rotations to keep building healthy soil. They and are grown in dedicated gluten free fields.
We are always working to provide food that distinguishes itself. That sets itself apart, if only by the littlest bit. That's what we hope to with these naked oats. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Gluten, peanut and soy free.

Oats (Avena sativa L.) have received considerable attention for their high content of dietary fibres, phytochemicals and nutritional value. It is believed that consumption of oats possesses various health benefits such as hypocholesterolaemic and anticancerous properties. Oats have also recently been considered suitable in the diet of celiac patients. Owing to their high nutritional value, oat-based food products like breads, biscuits, cookies, probiotic drinks, breakfast cereals, flakes and infant food are gaining increasing consideration.
