Do Oatly’s products contain gluten?

Because we place special demands on the cleanliness of our raw oats, we are able to guarantee that Oatly products contain less than 100 ppm (mg/kg product) gluten from wheat, rye and barley. This is comparable to products that may be labelled "Very low gluten" and which are allowed to contain max 100 ppm gluten. We guarantee the same limits for all of the products in our range. Products that are labelled "gluten-free" may not contain more than 20 ppm gluten, and the gluten content in Oatly's products is not this low.

US: Our products in the US are made from certified gluten-free oats and are labelled gluten-free.

AUS: In Australia – we cannot label Oatly as gluten-free. For a food to be called gluten-free, the food must not contain detectable gluten, oats or oat products; or cereals containing gluten that have been malted, or products of such cereals. For a food to be called low gluten, the food must contain no more than 20 mg gluten/100 g of the food.

  • So it’s not gluten free - why it be up front and honest I had to search for this answer and even then it’s not straightforward. When I googled it said it is but further investigation showed this was US info. If you’re so serious about helping with allergies make it clear. Very low gluten is not labelling we use in the Uk and for coeliacs it’s pointless. Not all coeliacs will be as savvy as me, or be able to research and read like me. List oats in BOLD on your packaging. It’s a shame because it looked lush whipped up when my friend brought it round for our dinner party.

  • Hi Carol!

    You're absolutely right, our products sold in the UK are not gluten-free and we're sorry to hear that you felt confused by the fact that our US range is. We do, however, not label our UK products as gluten-free (or low-gluten for that matter) and as we do state that they are free from dairy and soy we feel that it is clear what allergens are, and are not, present in our drink. That being said we still want to share the fact that our products are very low in gluten when people reach out and ask us about it, as some may be able to consume gluten in small amounts - making this type of information valuable. In addition to that, information about the ingredients used in our products are of course printed on the side of the carton as well as on our web. Anyhow, we're sorry about the confusion and appreciate your feedback.

    Hope you find another plant-based, and gluten-free, alternative that works for you!

    All best,
    Inez
