Healthy and Nutritious
We started Quoats because I couldn’t find a healthy breakfast to eat on the go in my city job. Rob, a farmer from Yorkshire, suggested using British quinoa, oats and flax to create an instant porridge pot with a twist. We knew oats contained beta glucan, which helps maintain normal cholesterol levels, and wanted to add in quinoa, which is a complete source of protein, helping maintain muscle mass and normal bones, as well as flax, which contains omega-3. (You can read more about the benefits of quinoa on our blog post here: http://Bit.ly/Quoatsblog1) The blend of these three incredible ingredients means Quoats is a natural source of protein and fibre, making it a really nutritious way to start the day.
When I gave up added sugar for lent one year I quickly realised how much sugar there is added into most foods, and though I expected cakes to be off the menu, soups and salads were a bit more of a surprise! We were therefore determined to make all our Quoats with no added sugar.
Many trials later (thanks friends and family, who knew porridge made such a great dinner?!) we came up with three really tasty, no added sugar flavours. Quoats Original is our simply delicious blend of quinoa, oats and flax. Date and Pecan has the original blend of quinoa, oats and flax with pieces of date and pecan for a great texture and flavour. The Coconut and Raspberry Quoats has the original blend of quinoa, oats and flax with the addition of coconut and raspberry pieces for a sumptuous natural flavour.
Rob and I both have farming backgrounds – I grew up on a dairy farm in Shropshire and Rob is an arable farmer in North Yorkshire. As farmers, we understand the importance of provenance (as well as a good breakfast!), which is why we wanted to use British quinoa, oats and flax. Many people are surprised to know our quinoa is grown in Essex rather than South America, whilst our flax comes from Sussex and our oats are sourced from Cheshire, making Quoats a truly brilliantly British product.
Quoats makes the perfect breakfast on the go – you simply add boiling water, stir and its ready in 3 minutes! Quoats is perfect for commuting, eating in the office, after the gym, before your evening sports session or as a pudding….. the list goes on!
