Founder's Story

 
About Candace Tierney - Founder, Oat & Mill
Ever since she was a wee girl, Candace has loved oats.  She’s eaten steel cut oats for breakfast almost every day for more than 20 years.  “Oats are my comfort food,” she says. “And, they’re my calling.” Candace was obsessed with ice cream from a very young age.  A few years ago, she had a flash of brilliance - why not combine her love of ice cream, with her love of oats, and her longing to eat entire pints at once without becoming sick?
 
Since then, she has been perfecting her recipe for the perfect oat based frozen dessert, with more than 300 trials to-date! Her favourite things include running, ice cream, and of course, oats.
About Canadian Oats
Oats are loaded in dietary fiber (containing more than any other grain) and have a range of healthy cholesterol-lowering properties.
 
The nutrient composition of oats is well-balanced. They are a good source of carbohydrates and fibre.  They contain more protein and fat than most grains, and are loaded with important vitamins, minerals and antioxidant plant compounds.  They help with maintaining a healthy blood sugar level.
Oats also taste delicious, and make the perfect ice cream base!
