ABOUT THE BRAND

What is Oatworks?

Oatworks is the only oat-powered fruit smoothie made with 100% fruit juice.

Why is your brand called Oatworks?

We believe in the power of oats… and Because Oats Work®

What makes Oatworks so special?

Taste one of our smoothies and you’ll find out. Made from premium, wholesome ingredients, Oatworks is the tastiest and most convenient way to enjoy the benefits of oats when you’re on the go.

Why is Oatworks the beverage of choice in the mornings?

We call that the A.M. “snack-fast” time. After all, most people barely have time to brush their hair in the morning, let alone prepare the most important meal of the day. Oatworks offers the wholesome goodness of oats combined with 100% fruit juice in one easy-to-grab bottle. The combination of oats and fruits is a great way to start your day, helping you feel fuller longer and stay energized as you live life on the go. But Oatworks is much more than a breakfast drink - it’s also a great “snack-fast”; good as an afternoon pick-me-up (P.M. snack-fast) or pre/post workout.

INGREDIENTS

What are the quality standards for Oatworks?

Only the finest oats and fruits find their way into a bottle of Oatworks. But we don’t stop there. Knowing the many dietary restrictions that exist today, we've created a drink that almost everyone can enjoy. That’s why Oatworks is:

Gluten-Free, Vegan-Friendly, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Non-GMO, and Kosher.

Oatworks is also free from artificial flavors, preservatives, colorings or sweeteners.

So, you can be sure you're only getting the good stuff.
 

Does Oatworks have added vitamins or minerals?

Oatworks does not need to have any vitamins or minerals added to it because it already contains the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that occur naturally in the fruit and oats.

What is beta glucan?

Small but mighty, oat beta glucan is what makes oats so good for you. It has many amazing health benefits. You may recognize beta glucan by its more general name, soluble fiber. Beta glucan is responsible for the cholesterol-lowering and satiating properties of oats, as well as their ability to provide sustained energy release.

How much soluble fiber does a bottle of Oatworks have?

You’d need to eat two bowls of Oatmeal each day to get as much soluble fiber as you’ll find in each bottle of Oatworks. That’s quite a challenge for even the heartiest of appetites. You’ll find 2g of soluble fiber in every bottle of Oatworks – that’s two-thirds of your recommended daily intake. Now that’s a lot of good stuff in one bottle.

What is the difference between soluble fiber and insoluble fiber?

Soluble fiber dissolves in water and forms a gel-like material that helps lower cholesterol and makes you feel fuller longer. Insoluble fiber doesn’t dissolve in water and speeds up the passage of food through your stomach and intestines. This is the type of fiber found in many laxatives today. Many consumers are not aware of the differences but they should be; all fibers are not created equal.

Is there added sugar in Oatworks?

No, we do not add any sugar to Oatworks, nor do we use any artificial sweeteners. The sweetness in our smoothies comes directly from the sugars that occurs naturally in the fruits. That’s why “No Sugar Added” appears directly on the front of our label.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

How is Oatworks different from other smoothies?

Oatworks is an oat-powered fruit smoothie, made with 100% fruit juice. It’s the best of two worlds, offering the benefits of fruit plus the benefits of oats. Each bottle contains as much soluble fiber as two bowls of oatmeal, so it’s truly satisfying, as well as exceptionally good for you.

Is it lumpy like oatmeal?

No, that’s one of the things that makes Oatworks so special. It’s an oat-powered fruit smoothie, but is always smooth, never lumpy. Because it’s smooth, we call it a smoothie.

Does it taste like oats?

Oatworks comes in 3 great varieties: Peach Mango, Pomegranate Blueberry and Strawberry Banana. Each flavor tastes like a fresh, homemade smoothie with the benefits of oats and the taste of fruit. We don’t add any artificial flavors so what you taste is exactly how nature intended it to taste.

Why not just eat oatmeal?

Millions of people recognize the benefits of oats, but many of us lack the time to make oatmeal every morning. Some of us don’t like the taste, others don’t like the lumpiness. Our fans appreciate the convenience and taste of Oatworks and love the way it fits their on-the-go lifestyle.

Does Oatworks need to be refrigerated?

Oatworks is shelf-stable and does not need to be refrigerated. But like good friends, Oatworks is best when chilled, so we recommend keeping a few bottles in your refrigerator, so you can grab one and enjoy it on-the-go.
