Oats <3 Beans

Gold&Green is a radical novelty on your plate. It’s not made of soy or wheat gluten. Instead, Gold&Green is made of oats and beans.

Oat is the Northern superfood. It has amazing effects on the heart health, blood sugar and digestion. Oat is also one of the most ecological crops in the world.

At the end of the fork oats & beans are yin & yang, forming together the perfectly balanced protein and a tender, juicy food structure.

Make my veggie day

Our secret is to collide the pure, clean Nordic oats with some age old Asian production methods. The result is completely new.

Our products have approx 30% of good quality protein, combined with good fatty acids and fibers. You can finally say goodbye to the boring minced meat on Mondays, and the tasteless soy strips as the only vegetarian option.

Plant based food that satisfies like good food should - it’s finally here.

No-brainer food

We have put extra focus on the straightforward user interface, so that you would feel totally comfortable cooking with Gold&Green pulled oats. As much as we all love soaking, sprouting and marinating, it’s perhaps not the way you’d like to start with a new food product. So don’t soak. With pulled oats you will be a master veggie chef with zero effort.

Gold&Green is the no-brainer protein choice for vegetarians, flexitarians, pescaterians and meat lovers alike.

Our first product Gold&Green pulled oats comes in three tasty flavors


What makes the


Well, we think there are three main factors that make some proteins better than others:

1. Taste and mouthfeel.

Taste is king. All Gold&Green products have the tender, chewy structure that reminds you of something familiar and makes it an easy pick for many of your favorite dishes.

The natural taste of pulled oats is smooth and fits naturally in many dishes. To make it even more appealing, we have created deliciously flavored variations.

2. The balanced nutritional profile.

All proteins are not the same. Unlike many other plant proteins, the protein from Gold&Green includes sufficient amounts of all the essential amino acids.

Amino acids are important building blocks in our bodies. They each have various roles and functions, most importantly building muscles and bones, maintaining heart health, and supporting the brain, nerves and immune system.

Furthermore, Gold&Green protein is served with dietary fibers, which makes it advantageous for digestion.

3. Sustainability.

Pulled oats is a new kind of plant protein food that utilizes oats, fababeans and pea as protein sources. Light, cold summer nights and plenty of fresh showers make the Northern oats grow golden, rich and mellow. Oat and beans like each other already on the field, as every second year beans produce high amounts of nitrogen to the soil, and oats utilize it effectively the year after.

We believe in the power of Nordic plants. Unfortunately the ingredients are not available as organic certified yet, but we buy only responsibly manufactured, traceable European ingredients.

No. We have never even met GMO oats, GMO peas or GMO fababeans.

Our oats and beans grow in the clean unpolluted Nordic nature. Unfortunately Nordic pea protein is not yet available. Our peas are originated from responsible manufacturers from Central Europe, until 100% Nordic is available.

Is Gold&Green a meat replacement?

If you wish. We don’t mind if you compare it to other plant proteins or seafood either.

Yessssss!!! Kids (1-17 years old) have loved it.

What is a perfect protein?

It’s a protein that has sufficient amount of all the essential amino acids, has a great ecological footprint, is easy to prepare and tastes good.

Why are amino acids so important?

They are building blocks in our bodies. We have to get them from food, as our bodies cannot synthetize them.

You can for example warm it in the pan with some oil, or put it in the oven or microwave. But it’s also edible as is.

Where can I buy Gold&Green?

We are testing small batches in restaurants and food retail stores. The final commercial product will be first available in Finland and Sweden later in 2016. Please let us know if you want to collaborate.

Does Gold&Green contain any preservatives or other e-codes?

No, of course not. The ingredient list is short and sweet without any e-codes at all.

Why is Gold&Green not using soy or gluten?

We believe in the power of Nordic plants. We do not want to be close to GMO or rainforest effects. We respect many consumers who want to avoid gluten, or those who worry about the allergens or have health concerns regarding soy. Therefore we have chosen to work with oats & beans only.
