Drink Spotlight: Oatly Natural Energy Strawberry and Forest Fruit Oat Drink



On the front of this carton are the words Natural Energy. We call it that because what you need to keep active and focused throughout the day is healthy carbs. So, we put berries together with oats to create a pretty delicious way to spend your afternoon break or your bike ride to the gym. You can sip it totally laid back or drink the entire carton in one gulp, but when you are finished you will be ready to go back to doing whatever it was you were planning on doing, refueled on the power of nature. Sorry about that, we should know better than to think that we have to sell this to you. Please try one sometime if you feel like it and feel the difference it makes to be charged on something healthy or don’t, that’s cool too. Whatever.

What’s amazing
It’s the natural energy combination of oats and fruit. It’s got all the goodness form the oats (protein, fat, carbs and fibers) and only 0.5% fat. A few more benefits? Affordable, convenient, delicious, satisfying and smooth. That sounded like we were a corporate company making claims, really sorry about that. Here’s a small piece of advice. Just try it, because the taste is what does it for the guy writing this.


What might be less amazing

If you are used to drinking Green Elephant Explosion or other energy drinks you might think that this drink shouldn’t really be called an energy drink, after all we haven’t stuffed it full of chemically produced caffeine. But before you pass that judgement on it, we would like you to please consider that energy is about getting you thru the day and natural is about finding that solution in things that can be grown in nature. Fibers and carbs will give you a longer more sustainable buzz and that is the kind of energy that we would prefer to stand for.

Oat base (water, oats 12%),
apple juice concentrate, juice of strawberry (0,3%), raspberry (0,3%) and blackberry (0,3%), flavour, salt, colour (beet root red), stabilizer (pektin).

Snack Review: Pro-Elite Beetroot & Oat Flapjack

Following almost a year of product development, we're happy to announce that last week Beet It introduced a new beetroot-based flapjack to the market in response to consumer demand.

The Pro-Elite Beetroot & Oat Flapjack delivers the same dose of nitrate that athletes get from a single Beet It shot, but in a more palatable format, for those who find a SPORT shot too heavy before races.

The bars are lactose-free and similar in taste to a cereal bar, making them a handy-on-the-go product for athletes in training or a healthy 'elevenses' snack.

BEET IT founder and Managing Director Lawrence Mallinson said: "The Beet It Sport flapjack has just arrived in Suffolk. It is a great tasting oatmeal bar packed with beetroot concentrate - with a dietary nitrate content of 0.4g, the same as a BEET IT SPORT shot. We developed the bars specially to provide an easier to consume alternative to the BEET IT shots - which are very intense - to top up your natural nitrate intake."

"The Beet It shots have been a huge success with the elite sports world. There has been a stream of published research findings from the over 100 universities worldwide that have been carrying out dietary nitrate supplementation research with our BEET IT shots over the past five years. BEET IT is now the most exciting and delicious new aid to achieving that elusive personal best."


About the Company
Since 1991, we've been based on Whites Fruit Farm in Ashbocking, just north of Ipswich. Originally a cider factory, Lawrence Mallinson bought the assets to James White and began to explore a love of pressed fruit and vegetable juices. Originally one of the founders of New Convent Garden Soup, Lawrence has a knack for dreaming-up and creating new and exciting flavours. As a result, we now not only offer a range of English apple juices, but also an extensive portfolio of very different brands. This includes a Soil Association-certified range of organic fruit and vegetable juices, our world-famous spiced tomato juice (Big Tom), the grandfather - or Great Uncle - of the brands (Great Uncle Cornelius juices), an exciting and fun range of organic fruit and vegetable juices (Manic Organics), a fabulous and rather extensive selection of cordials (Thorncroft), and last, but by no means least, our best-selling brand of beetroot juice: Beet It!  Keep Reading

About the Company
Here at Nairn’s we’re proud of our oaty heritage, we have been baking oatcakes since 1888. We only use wholegrain oats grown in the nearby Scottish Borders (with the exception of Gluten Free), where the climate is perfect for slowly ripening the grains. Today, we now have a versatile range of oatcakes, oat biscuits, oaty bakes and gluten free products which do not contain any artificial colourings, flavours or preservatives.

There has been a great deal of research into the positive health benefits of oats. Oats are high in fibre and contain complex carbohydrates which give you a natural and wholesome boost to help you get the most out of your day. We work hard to make sure that all that oaty goodness stays in all our naturally energising products, without ever compromising on taste.

So you could say that here at Nairn’s we really do know our oats. We also know the importance of keeping our delicious award winning products as simple, wholesome and healthy as possible – the proof is in the taste.
