Organic high protein porridge from That Protein, the multi award-winning innovator and producer of plant-based superfood powders in Northern Ireland, is now being enjoyed by families in Amsterdam at breakfast.
The recently launched natural oat porridge is among the full range of That Protein’s superfood powders which are now on sale at Vegabond, the leading plant-based food store and deli for vegans and health conscious consumers in the Dutch city.
Darlene McCormick, That Protein’s founding managing director, says: “I was thrilled to receive the request from such a prestigious and influential food store as Vegabond for our complete range of products. It’s our first business in Amsterdam.
“The Vegabond team had heard about our healthy superfood products, including our unique double chocolate porridge, from the media and contacted me directly to see if I would launch the products in the Netherlands with them.
“As a result, the products are now on the store’s shelves and are doing really well.”
Vegabond, based near Amsterdam city centre, specialises in plant-based foods, especially for vegans.
It features a café in which everyone can enjoy delicious plant-based food.
The store stocks a wide variety of vegan products, such as handmade plant-based cheese, egg-replacers, vegan ice-cream, and vegan beauty products.
That Protein’s protein porridge also recently gained FODMAP certification as suitable in particular for sufferers of IBS and other digestion issues.
The important certification for its natural oat-based porridge product follows rigorous independent testing by FODMAP dietary experts.
The low FODMAP certification for the organic porridge is the third achieved by the small Northern Ireland business for its innovative products.
It became the first in the UK last year to gain FODMAP approval for its award-winning Blissful Raw Cacao Organic Super Protein.
The company’s Chirpy Chirpy Choca Mocha Super Protein product subsequently gained the accreditation.
Darlene, commenting on the accreditation, adds: “We were delighted to receive this endorsement by dietary specialists in extensive laboratory tests for our new organic porridge.”
The small innovation-led enterprise has also won three major endorsements from the quality and innovation of its high protein products in the Nourish Awards, the most important event in the vegan foods calendar.
