ZEGO’s gluten free Double Protein Oats are grown by a specific group of farmers in the western region of the U.S. who use purity protocol growing methods and agree not to use the toxic chemicals glyphosate or paraquat on their adjacent conventional fields.
ZEGO oats are organic, but it is known that toxic chemicals can drift from surrounding fields and waterways. To prevent this, their farmers sign contracts to not use glyphosate or paraquat on their conventional oat fields. Zego also test the oats for over 400 agricultural conventional chemicals and glyphosate. Scan the QR code on any package to see the purity test results for your oat package and the list of the 400 chemicals we test for.
ZEGO products are made in facilities FREE FROM gluten & top allergens (no peanuts, no tree nuts, no soy, no dairy, no egg, no wheat, no fish/shellfish, no lupin, no sesame, no mustard, no sulfites). Additionally, corn is typically not present in our facilities or on our equipment. Our packaging is also free of corn by-products and corn dusting powder.
ZEGO organic gluten-free Double Protein Oats are purity protocol gluten-free (the highest GF standard) and have about twice the protein of typical rolled oats (10g per 48g serving v. 5-6g) and 20%-40% more fiber, which means they have a lower glycemic load.
ZEGO Oats are high protein. They have is a natural feature of the variety of oats their farmers grow, which was selected due to its high protein content and growing height (see Purity Protocol info below). This higher protein is retained because they do not heat process the oats before rolling them out. The oats’ hulls are very loose and fall off during harvest, whereas other brands have to steam their grains to remove the hulls, which decreases protein content.
Naturally lower in anti-nutrients, mycotoxins, and enzyme activity bitterness. Because ZEGO oats are raw, their natural enzymes are still active, and that activity can result varying levels of bitterness in the raw product. The good news is that those enzymes are preventing the development of anti-nutrients like phytates that can interfere with nutrient absorption and cause digestive upset. In addition, because their oat hulls are naturally extremely loose around the grain, they also have much lower mycotoxins than other typical hulled oat grains. You should always cook any kind of oats and especially raw oats. This will neutralize the bitterness from the enzyme activity.
