Oats. Everything starts here

Oats are a valuable source of many nutrients. With a low glycemic index and high levels of fibre and antioxidants, the humble oat works to fuel our gut microbiomes and improve digestive and heart health.  

All of that is diminished when the crop is grown with artificial inputs like chemical fertilisers or pesticides. The World Health Organisation's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) identified glyphosate [globally the most widely used herbicide and the one most popular with New Zealand farmers] as a probable human carcinogen. If you test non-organic oats for glyphosate levels, you will find them and the impact of consuming these glyphosate residues remains unknown.

Knowing that, you do what you can, you try and reduce your risk.  That’s why we only use organic oats – doing our bit to help you.

For more information on our organic oats please refer to our FAQ’s Where are your oats from?

A shake, but made functional

In New Zealand, and other parts of the world where the western diet prevails, many people struggle to meet dietary fibre recommendations. Fibre is super important. It also provides powerful protective agents, like antioxidants, yet it doesn't get the same attention as protein. Oats are a great source of fibre, so by sipping on an Oatshake, you'll reach 26% of your daily fibre. Easy.

In truth, most of the sugar is from the oats and life is all about balance anyway. 

Fortified because micros matter

Most of us don’t have the time to calculate our RDI’s and the truth is, many of us will be deficient in one vitamin or another. So, we designed our Oatshakes to deliver Vitamins B2, B12 and D3.  Adding more would have been fantastic, but this is a shake and not a multi-vitamin. Here’s more about each vitamin you’ll find in an Oatshake. 

Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, helps your body better absorb calcium, magnesium, and phosphate—all vital nutrients. Even here in New Zealand, some of us don’t get enough, so we added Vitamin D3 to our Oatshakes, which is considered superior to vitamin D2 in its efficacy. And yes, our D3 is vegan, made from lichens. 

Your B Vitamins are also super important, so we added Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, and B12.

Vitamin B2—like the other B’s, help your body build red blood cells and support other cellular functions that give you energy. So, drinking Oatshakes might make you feel more energised and alive. 

Vitamin B12, or cobalamin, is also needed to form red blood cells and plays a role in the function and development of brain and nerve cells. So, keeping up your Vitamin B12 levels will have long term effects on your cognitive health. B12 is so essential but hard to get if you’re vegan, vegetarian or flexitarian, or in general not eating animal products. So drink an Oatshake—one bottle will provide you with 40% of your daily Vitamin B12 intake. 


Future thinking milk

We're creating drinkable nostalgia without the chemicals and cane sugar, and no powder to mix or cow's milk. Yes, dairy remains at the centre of New Zealand's economy - and diets - but we know that is changing. We need to reimagine what we eat and how we make the best use of our land. A shake made from organic oats and not cow’s milk requires fewer natural resources and supports regenerative farming systems.  This helps put carbon back in the soils, not into our atmosphere.

But this transformation of our food system all begins with giving people good options.
