FAQs

What are steel cut oats?

 

It all starts with great groats. Nope, that’s not a typo. Funny as it may sound, the term groat refers to a whole hulled oat grain. Steel discs cut the groats into 2-3 pieces allowing them to retain most of their bran, fiber and nutrients, whereas typical milling removes much of this good stuff.

why are the spices clumped together in my meal kit?

We do not use any anti-caking agents in any of our spices, such as silicon dioxide.  Therefore, you may experience some clumping in the spice blends in our Meal Kits.  Once the spices are combined with water, they will unclump just like any other spice blend is expected to.

This is completely normal and does not impact taste or quality :)
