Oat grains (Avena sativa) grow on ‘panicles’ which are free hanging pod-like forms. They are indigestible, straw-coloured husk must be removed to make groats before they can be processed through steaming and rolling into porridge-style oats. Even after processing oats don’t have the bran and germ removed and so can still be considered a whole-grain.
Kailla are foods have sourced their organic rolled oats from Finland since a crop failure in Australia sent us searching for ways to fulfill people’s ongoing desire for these delicious grains. What we consequently found is that Finnish oats are the best in the world because prolonged daylight hours during the growing season ensure they get more sun and thus more phytonutrients. Oats also grow better in more moist climates.
People consistently tell us that they are the best oats, so we made a call on ‘quality vs local’ and went for the option of maintaining quality and consistency.
