Do you do any nut-free granolas?
Sorry no, we use a high percentage of nuts in all our granolas so they are not safe for anyone with a nut allergy.
Is everything gluten-free?
Yes, everything we make is gluten-free. Our paleo range is also cereal-free.
Why do we use nuts?
First and foremost, they taste great and have fantastic texture. They are also proven to have numerous long-term health benefits as well as give long-lasting energy. For us it was a no-brainer to use as many nuts as possible in our range.
Early on, we realised that this was something that nobody else dis, to get the best possible flavours and textures we use a whole host of nuts including: Macadamias, Pecans, California Walnuts, Brazils and Pistachios.
Do we use peanuts?
We do not use any peanuts in any of our products. Due to the high allergen factor of peanuts we made the decision to keep peanuts out of all our products. Our factory is a peanut free zone – that means no peanut butter and jam sandwiches for the nutworkers.
Why no refined sugar?
There are a number of reasons we don’t use refined sugars in our granolas and why we should be either reducing it or removing it completely from our diets.
Refined sugar provides absolutely no vitamins, minerals, proteins or fats available which is why the term ‘empty calories' makes sense. We use fruit to sweeten and some sources of unrefined sugars such as honey and maple syrup, both of which have been shown to help regulate insulin and so not cause a number of the issues refined sugars are known so well to cause.

What benefits can nuts have?
Nuts are packed with vitamins and minerals and provide a healthy portion of fats, protein and fibre to give a great boost to your day. Why do we use nuts? Well they taste great and have a fantastic texture to start with, they also provide long lasting energy meaning you feel fuller for longer and you can enjoy your day.
Now, there are so many associated health benefits we can’t list them all but a few articles below give you a good idea of how nuts can help you in your day-to-day life. Remember a portion of Rollagranola a day can provide you with all the benefits nuts have to offer.

What we can claim is that there is evidence that nuts, seeds and fruits can actively contribute to your health in specific areas, these include:
- Heart Health
- Arthritis and joints
- Good for the Gut
- Alzheimer’s and Memory
- Depression and anxiety
What benefits can avocado oil/ coconut oil have?
Both oils we use in our granolas have been shown to have multiple health benefits. We use avocado oil in most granolas, it has a mild taste meaning it doesn’t disrupt the other beautiful flavours in our products and we use coconut oil to help add some flavour. We don’t use much of either they are there is small amounts to help us get those amazing clusters you all like to nibble on so much.

Will it fill me up?
Nuts have been said to be designed to control apetite due to the fact that they are high in heralthy fats, fibre and protein, these three elements slow digestion and regulate blood sugar especially well when combined with fruit or oats. Sounds like a big bowl of Rollagranola to us.
