The first protein sweets using the Japanese plant-based protein, GRØN, were released on April 22nd at the Café OPEN NAKAMEGURO.

GRØN uses only plant-based ingredients, no fillers, sweeteners, or anything artificial; therefore, the name choice, GRØN (which translates as green in Danish and is pronounced /ɡrœn/).

The company had as a concept the Nordic values. It mainly focused on the idea of sustainability and the use of local ingredients when launching the product.

The protein brand launched in 2018, and in the process of making it, the company used ancient methods blended with modern technology.

Natural, simple, with a goal towards a better, healthier, and more sustainable environment, GRØN is also a good vegan and gluten-free option. It is a perfect product for those who want to opt for a more environmentally friendly product, too.

The OPEN NAKAMEGURO Café teamed up with the protein brand and has now released two desserts based on GRØN: Berry Beats Granola and Matcha Banana Granola.

Both have fresh fruits at the bottom, granola in the middle, and yogurt mixed with the protein GRØN on top and are a good choice for a healthy snack, a healthy dessert, or breakfast.

Berry Beets Granola

The Berry Beats Granola uses GRØN Red Heat protein which includes soy protein, beetroots, amazake, goji berries, Okinawa purple sweet potatoes, maca, and sugar beet molasses.
