The New Nordic Cuisine movement is inspired by living close to nature.
At Maruili, we follow principles of the New Nordic Diet. The New Nordic Diet is based on whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables supplemented with moderate amounts of lean proteins, is low in sugars and uses canola oil for cooking.
Inspired by the values embedded in the ‘Maruili Healthy Nordic Lifestyle’, our mission is to provide healthier, oat-based bakery products and snacks to our friends in Taiwan.
Here at Maruili we are passionate about the Nordic Lifestyle of happiness and health, wholesomeness and wellness.
We believe that the best diets are more about wellbeing, healthy values and wise lifestyle choices than about particular foods. Health and Happiness are a way of Life.
The Nordic Lifestyle is centred around Nature, the 4 Seasons, Simplicity & a Smart Work/Life Balance. Together this culture increases contentment and reduces stress.
The breads and foods we provide you are made with whole grain oats, wheat and rye and unprocessed ingredients.
Our Meal Sets and Finnish Finger Foods (Sapas) are prepared with fresh vegetables and completed with modest portions of lean proteins like oily fish and eggs, or dairy like low-fat cheese and yogurt.
The toppings for our breakfast selection, cakes and cookies are made of fruits, nuts, seeds and berries.
According to the guidelines of the New Nordic Diet, we prepare our dishes with canola oil and season them with fresh herbs and spices.
In Nordic Countries, bread is the staple food and expresses the essence of Nordic culture.
Nordic Bread Culture is extremely rich and includes not only breads made from refined wheat-flour, but also 100% whole-grain breads combining wheat, rye, oat and barley.
The summer in Nordic countries is short but very sunny. This produces cereals of a high nutritional value. This includes oats that are a healthier alternative to supplement wheat in bakery products.
To make oat bread requires that it is combined with other flours that can rise. At Maruili, we source and blend our own, proprietary flour mix.
The secret of The Maruili Recipe is that of all the flours in our bread, more than 50% is whole grain, oat flour.
Maruili’s ‘Real Finnish Oat Bread’ is so unique that even in Finland there are less than a handful of bakeries that come even close!
