While it is not difficult for consumers to find frozen entrees on the market like vegetarian chili, chana masala or Thai curry, Grainful distinguishes itself as a unique brand by making its entrees oat-based.
True to its name, Grainful's frozen entrees like Ranchero Chicken, Tuscan Bean & Kale and Unstuffed Pepper are made with a base of 100% whole grain steel cut oats, effectively transforming what is often only seen as a breakfast staple into a replacement for other grains. Although oats are often paired with sweeteners, fruits and berries, these oat-based meals are enriched with a variety of savory herbs and vegetables.
Grainful is one of the innovative food and beverage companies that is participating in this year's Chobani Food Incubator.
