It is easy to cook, healthy and tastes awesome. On top of that it’s unbelievably easy on the planet. That is why we’ve named it Oumph!
Where's the name from?
Oumph! is short for what we are all about: creating energetic people! That is what Oumph! does, both physically and creatively.
Who’s behind it?
The Oumph! team at Future Foods has attracted a lot of interesting people, but the driving force behind it is renowned Swedish chef Anders ”The Duck” Linden. He has been working in the kitchen since the 80's and is well known for his energetic and innovative style. Oumph! is his latest and most impactful project to date.
What’s in it for me?
Oumph! is a plant based product that comes in different shapes and consistencies. The basic Oumph! product is very rich in protein and fibers and also a good source for folic acid and iron. It is also low on calories and almost fat free!
It can be cooked, grilled, fried, in a pan or a fryer, depending on what consistency you prefer. You can then spice it up with any of your favorite sauces or spices. It is easy to cook, you eat healthy and you’re good to the environment
Why is Oumph!
The soybean is notable among plants for its “high quality” protein.
Soy is rich in fiber and is also a good source of several essential minerals, including magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron
Multiple studies show that the consumption of soy has tremendous benefits including improved cardiovascular health, bone health, and protection from certain kinds of cancer.
What is even more exciting is that we will have the ability to work with other beans and incorporate them into our products as well.
How come it’s so tasty?
First and foremost is the texture. But even more important is how you choose to cook it. The wicked good experience is all about you. Oumph! offers a premium texture that is healthy and fills you up. In addition to that it is good for the environment. That, in addition to your flavoring and favorite sauce makes Oumph! probably the tastiest new experience in ages.
Why plant based?
The world population is nearing 10 billion people and we need to find new ways to energize people without compromising taste or the environmental impact. We believe that Oumph! is a huge step in the right direction.
Is Oumph! for vegans?
We don’t care if you are vegan, Norwegian or anything else. Oumph! is not about that. We want you to be an energetic chef with the courage to try out new things in the kitchen. But yes, Oumph! is vegan.
How about GMO's?
Our products have the lowest GMO values in the world and do not contain any modified ingredients. To be labeled as GMO Free, the maximum GMO contamination for human food is 0.9%. Our contamination level is a maximum of 0.1%.
The effects of soy have been a topic of debate for years. Despite all the negative backlash, Soy has remained a key ingredient in plant-based foods.
A few common myths about Soy:
Can eating soy increase a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer?
On the contrary, studies have found there is scientific evidence that consuming soy reduces the risk of breast cancer.

Does soy affect male hormone levels and/or fertility?
Thus far, evidence suggests neither soy protein nor soy isoflavones affect male hormone systems or testosterone levels. Studies conducted in both men and women show that soy foods and soy isoflavones do not affect or hinder growth, fertility or reproductive health.
