Is there sugar in Oatly oat drinks?

The short answer is yes. The long answer, yes but it's a type of sugar that's not added but rather, it's an outcome of the liquidation process the oats go through.
If you read the nutritional values on a carton of Oatly (or any other oat drink) you'll always see a sugar value and his is the case even with our organic drink which is made up of only two simple ingredients - water and oats.

So if no sugar is added then why do oat drinks have sugar content?...

In our manufacturing process we add enzymes that break down the starch in the oats to maltodextrin and maltose, maltose being a natural sugar from the oats. The enzymes we use are natural and are also found in our gastrointestinal tract. In our natural oat drink there is 4g of sugars (maltose)/100 ml which can be compared to the amount of lactose (including natural sugar) in cow's milk (5g/100 ml).

If you have any concerns about sugar in Oatly let us know below and we'll be happy to expand!
