Why oat milk? Well, it’s a dairy-free milk derived from plant-based ingredients, using oats as its base. That means it does not contain any dairy from cows, or any animal-based byproducts. It is suitable for people with allergies, dairy intolerances, or those who follow a plant-based or vegan diet. Oat milk is a good source of a number of nutrients, vitamins and minerals, including fiber, calcium, and vitamin B12. Oat milk is also better for the environment, providing a more sustainable, less taxing dairy alternative.
According to a recent survey conducted on behalf of Oatly, 71% of Americans would consider swapping in plant-based products in place of dairy when cooking or baking, demonstrating an increasing curiosity around the potential of dairy-free alternatives in the kitchen.
