It all started with a simple question: why is it so hard to find a healthy, shelf-stable meal? Our founder loved the convenience of oatmeal but wished it could better align with her nutritional goals. She yearned for a high-protein, no-sugar-added meal that she could enjoy anytime, anywhere. Driven by her passion for health and wellness, she took matters into her own hands and 5oat5 was born.
5oat5 is produced in Albuquerque, NM in a commercial kitchen that is FDA and USDA approved.
We are a 100% women owned business.
