Here at Zego, we go above and beyond the norm to make sure you get the highest quality oatmeal!
First, I do a sniff test. Seriously. I get a sample from the farm and look for the grassy earthy smell unique to oats. If it’s not raw, it may smell like the cardboard it comes in.
We generally buy from the same farms and our tests are consistent and great! (Because we are buying from the same farms, we should only need to test once post-harvest but we spot check just in case.)
