Ingredients: organic rolled oats, organic evaporated cane juice, organic roasted soy nuts, organic sweetened dried cranberries, organic brown rice flour, organic soy germ, sea salt, organic ginger and organic cinnamon.

Why didn't they just say "all ingredients are organic?" But anyway, this is unimportant. What IS important is that this handy little packet of oatmeal comes in as a cheap, delicious, nutritious alternative for those eating desk breakfasts after the gym (like myself) or those too lazy or time-deprived  to cook up some steel cut oats with 1/4 cup blueberries, a tbsp maple syrup and a little cinnamon (satisfies a blueberry pancake craving i never even knew i had). I digress.
Optimum Zen is one of a few rotating desk breakfasts for good reason- there's no need to have milk or jam or cheese ready to add to it, nor does it need to be refrigerated or tossed after a certain date. It's practically indestructible, light enough to toss in a bag, easy to take camping, ah so versatile!

Just empty into a cup or bowl and add 1/2 cup hot water, or nuke with 2/3 cup water. On cold winter mornings OZ also serves as a real comfort food, and there's a good balance of sweet n salt n fiber. In an office with blasting AC, OZ works even in the midst of a 105 degree heat wave.  

Here's the regular info on oats/ oatmeal just to convince you:
