I've heard that Oatly contains beta-glucans, is this true?

It is! There is naturally about 5g of beta-glucans per 100g of oats and 0.4g of beta-glucans per 100ml of oat drink (as it contains 10% oats). In accordance with EU regulations, to be able to use beta-glucans as a health claim in products, it is required that each serving must provide at least 1g of beta-glucans. This means that our natural oat drinks fulfil this health claim, but the products with a greater proportion of fat (such as Creamy Oat and Oat Spread) don't.

Betaglucans are good for the heart. As a part of a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle, they contribute to maintaining normal cholesterol levels in your blood. One 250 ml glass of Oatly provides a third (1 g) of the daily requirement of betaglucan.
