So if we wanted to incorporate geography into the name of this product, why not Oatgurt Landskrona Style? It would have been more logical, since this product was both invented and manufactured in Landskrona, Sweden. And even though this amazing stuff is used in the same way as Greek yogurt, it is far from Greek yogurt — theoretically, even further from the yogurt part than from the Greek part, since it is completely free of dairy, while the Greek city of Thessaloniki is only 2,399 kilometres from our factory in Landskrona. Of course all of this is really, really far off from what we are here to tell you about on this webpage which is that Oatgurt Greek Style has a thick, smooth and creamy texture combined with a fresh and pleasantly sour flavour. Not to brag, but this is among the best* products we have ever created, if not the best webpage copy.
You might call this product a kitchen workhorse, if you like to speak in metaphors. Hot recipes, cold recipes, room-temp recipes (also called snacks), whatever you got, it’s ready to make it all really great. Other nice things are the calcium, iodine, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D2 and the fact that the 10% fat comes from rapeseed oil which is high in unsaturated fat — you know, the good kind.* Another bit of amazingness we should mention is that the container can be recycled as paper (the same as TetraPak), so if you are making a “why should I try this stuff” list, you can check the sustainability box, too.
What might be less amazing
At first I, web-writer person, wrote “nothing" here but then I realised it may seem a bit less amazing that the list of ingredients is quite long. So I talked to Sofia, our innovations director, and she let me know that yes, some of the ingredients are difficult to pronounce but that doesn’t mean they are artificial or bad or whatever. They’re all on the list, and in the product, for a reason. Without potato starch and pectin, for example, Oatgurt Greek would not have its creamy texture, and I would have something really less amazing to write about here.
* All our other products are also among the best we have ever created, but still.
* This product is rich in unsaturated fat. Replacing saturated fat in the diet with unsaturated fat
helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.

Stir before enjoying, okay? Also, keep it in the fridge. An opened package lasts at least five days. Unopened, let the date stamp be your guide. What really matters is smelling, looking and tasting. Insider tip: If it’s stored properly in the fridge it often lasts longer than the best-before date, so you’re good.
