Ever since Ali (CEO + Founder of Oat Haus) was little, she had been fascinated by nutrition. This took her on an exciting journey with many ups and downs. She studied nutrition, soaking up every little detail like a sponge. Unfortunately, the nutritional "information overload" put pressure on her to eat perfectly clean all the time, causing food to become very rigid & stressful. She ultimately developed an eating disorder that spanned over 10 years. Through her years of recovery, Ali re-introduced nuts into her diet (something she had heavily restricted for years), but her stomach just couldn’t tolerate them. While repairing her gut, she searched high and low for a healthy and delicious nut-free spread. Nothing really resonated with her, so she decided to create my own, and the world's first oat-based spread — Granola Butter — was born.
