Nature's Palette: The Beauty of Plant-Based Colors

At Elevated Oats, we believe that what you put in your body matters. That's why we're committed to using only the best, all-natural ingredients in our gluten-free granola. But what about the color? After all, granola is just as much about appearance as it is taste. How do we keep our granola looking vibrant and appealing, without relying on artificial dyes or additives?

The answer is simple: we turn to the power of plants.

Plants have been used for centuries to add color to food, and for good reason. Not only are they a natural source of color, but they also bring added health benefits. For example, beets provide a gorgeous red hue and is rich in antioxidants and nitrates— have you seen our Cranberry Cashew Chew??

By using natural plant-based ingredients to color our granola, we not only avoid synthetic dyes and chemicals, but we also enhance the nutritional profile of our product. It's a win-win!

Our gluten-free granola is available in a variety of colors, each with its own unique flavor and health benefits. Whether you choose our classic Banana Nut Bread, or go for something a little more adventurous with our Pineapple Habanero, you can be sure that the colors you see are all natural. In fact, you'll be so excited for this next limited edition flavor! 👇

🤔 Here's a riddle to give you a hint on what we're working on:

I'm a juicy, red delight,

Sweet and tangy, quite a sight,

I grow on a bush, not a tree,

What am I? The answer is up to thee.

A PNW favorite— Raspberry!

We were beyond grateful for one of our community members to share pounds of frozen Raspberries with us for our first test batch...

🤩 Wow— this granola is a bright and full of REAL raspberry.
