This is really good food. It’s made of beans. But forget about the healthy part. We believe in mouthwatering food. Food that’s easy to cook. And in addition to that, is crazy good for the environment. That’s Oumph! The climate impact is so low that you and everyone else on this planet can eat it every day. That’s epic.*

Welcome, we’re so happy to have you on our journey!

 

*Plant protein is resource efficient and have low climate impact. Oumph! is rich in protein and fibre. And a source to iron and folic acid. Read more on WWF!

Oumph! is a new ingredient with a completely unique structure and texture. It’s unlike anything else from the plant kingdom, but at the same time it feels familiar. The Pure Oumph!, the unseasoned flavor, can be used in an endless variety of dishes. You can season it any way you like and it’s extremely easy to cook. You can sauté, boil, grill, deep-fry or heat it over open fire. Just do whatever tickles your fancy!

We are completely convinced that a great taste experience is the key to a food culture where there’s enough food to go around for everyone. Even when there are 9 billion people on earth. We are driven by an ambition to decrease our climate impact drastically while increasing the health for many. That’s why we’ve developed an entire series of Oumph!-products seasoned with different spices.

Oumph! is different from any other products on the market. The words ”you have to try it for yourself” have never been more true.

Oumph! is a part of a bigger picture. A context that we call Food for Progress. With a global perspective and a local presence we are driving the development towards sustainable food. Food for progress was born from the obvious insight that progress is created by people. People who strive for better. People who grasp opportunity and take the future into their own hands.

We are united by a drive to create tasteful, nutritious and climate-savvy food that can feed all people on earth.

We know that humanity needs to switch from a meat based to a plant based protein intake. We don’t want to get rid of all meat and all livestock, but we need a production process that allows respect for animals, humans and the environment. This requires us to eat way more greens. And it requires new ways to make food. We know that everyone can participate in the shift, as long as the shift tastes amazing! Welcome, we’re so happy to have you on our journey!

Because it tastes so good! And by that we mean the whole experience you get from eating it. Oumph! is an expression that comes from the chef Anders Ankan Lindén. He’s cooked at fine restaurants and large factories alike all around the globe. The common language for something that tastes straight up fantastic, in a way that makes you blissful, is Oumph!

To us it’s partially the plain product that is Oumph!, but it’s also what spices we use and the dishes we make. The feeling is always the same. Oumph!!!

First and foremost is the texture. That’s the base of the wicked good taste experience. We believe in mouthwatering food. Food that inspires, but that’s also easy to cook and fills you up. Oumph! is all of these things. And it’s incredibly healthy. To top that off it’s also really good for the environment. The climate impact is impeccably low. Our life cycle analyzes indicates 1,39 kg CO2e per kilo raw material. Or 8,2 kg CO2e per kg protein. That is so awesome that we have stopped compare our climate impact with meat and choose instead to benchmark it against the planetary boundaries. Plain and simple, Oumph! is food that can be enough for everyone without messing up the climate. Yeah!

Everyone can eat it. Many families, friends groups and other constellations have vegetarians, meateaters, flexitarians and those who eat a little bit of everything. When you put Oumph! on the table you don’t need to worry about everyone having different food preferences (as long as no one is allergic to soya protein). And all things aside: Fast food is here to stay. Slow cooked food in all it’s glory, but a lot of the time, we don’t have the time. We need fast, fair and good food. Oumph!

Soy is straight up a pretty rad ingredient. From a nutritional standpoint it’s almost unbeatable, containing a lot of protein, fibre, folic acid and other vitamins and minerals. Soy also fills up your belly in a comfortable and long-lasting way. Our favorite diet is the eat-all-the-good-foods-diet. Since our soy doesn’t contribute to the deforestation of the rainforest the only negative part about it is that some people are unfortunate enough to be allergic.
The soya protein that’s used to make Oumph! comes from carefully selected suppliers. Today it’s bought in North America. In the years to come, we’re probably going to have to source soya protein from other parts of the world to make sure that we have enough non-GMO soya protein to create stability in our deliveries when the weather gods are being unruly. We don’t buy any soy from South America to make sure we don’t contribute to the deforestation.
We’re sorry to say it’s not. Our innovative partners have been completely focused on and dedicated to finding an amazing texture. But because Food for Progress is focused on (you guessed it) progress we always use organic spices. And we’re working towards offering a completely organic Oumph! in the future.
Oumph! is made from soya protein that isn’t genetically modified. Despite that, there can be traces of GMO-soya protein. Our supplier guarantees that the product, in legal terms, doesn’t contain genetically modified ingredient. This means that the percentage of GMO-soya protein doesn’t exceed 0,9%. Since we’re nerdy like that we’ve taken a special interest in keeping Oumph! as GMO free as possible. The first analysis we did came back at 0,2% GMO.
Absolutely! It’s fabulous food for vegans. And everyone else. Oumph! doesn’t contain any animalistic ingredients.
It can be, but it can also be the opposite. The largest share of soya protein production today is used for animal feed. The increase of industrial soya protein production in rainforest areas is a direct effect of the expanding meat industry. To feed a growing population, food production has to increase. It’s an effective use of our land resources to make soya protein directly into, for example, Oumph!. The smartest thing we can do to maximize the use from our agricultural land and the water we have access to is to eat more directly from the plant kingdom instead of feeding animals so that they can feed us.

We also make sure that our soya protein is bought from producers in countries where farming doesn’t take place in deforested areas.

Oumph! is full of protein, iron, fibre and folic acid. The nutritional values is up to par with the high standards that are set in order for us to talk about it loud and proud. We can say ”Rich in protein and fibre” and ”Source of iron and folic acid”. At the same time it’s low on calories and nearly fat free. We are super happy about the dietary expert comment ”among the most nutritional dense foods I’ve ever seen”. 
1. Soya protein concentrate is extracted from soya beans
2. The soya protein concentrate is mixed with water into a dough. The dough goes through a machine that by pressure and heat creates the structure. It’s the same kind of technique that is used in the making of products such as Cheese Doodles. The inventors just had the goal to create a different texture. The raw material for Oumph! is produced in Holland.
3. In our factory in the Swedish town of Stora Levene, Västra Götaland, we refine the texture and the taste by adding broths, marinades and sauces. We’re going to keep on creating new Oumph!-products forever and ever.
The unseasoned ingredient, The Pure Oumph!, contains nothing but soy protein concentrate, water and salt. For the flavored products, The Spicy Oumph!, we’ve chosen organic spices. Where it has been necessary we’ve used approved organic additives. Citric acid, dextrose, the starch xanthan gum and yeast extract. The last one we use very sparingly, but sometimes it adds such a nice flavor tone. We don’t work with any artificial flavor enhancers such as monosodium glutamate.
Why would we compare it to meat? These are new times, the plant kingdom has to be front and center or the planet we live on won’t be able to feed us all. An epic new thing deserves it’s own name, this is to good to just be a substitute for something else.

It is however relevant that Oumph! is LIKE meat. Both when it comes to how it feels in your mouth and how it’s prepared. Many people like the taste and feel of meat. It gives a feeling of eating food that you’re used to, food that leaves you full and satisfied. To switch meat for something that gets the job done in the same way makes change easier. Both for us as individuals and for the food industry as a whole.

No. But there are some rumors surrounding this. Soya protein contain phytoestrogens, but it’s a different kind than the one we have in our bodies. With a varied diet containing a normal intake of soya protein, no one needs to worry about hormonal side effects. The rumors derive from two case studies where 12 men each ate 14 portions of soya protein per day during an extended period of time. The test subjects experienced enlargements in breast tissue and erectile dysfunction. When their soya protein consumption went back to normal the symptoms stopped.
