Oatly on a carb-free diet??

Hi,
I'm a low carb fanatic, but also a vegetarian going on vegan, currently anxious to replace my double cream in coffee with a kinder version.
Looking at the data, Oatly looks a fairly heavy carb alternative.  If you have any advice, I would appreciate it.

  • Hi Catherine! Thank you for your question!

    Both oat drink and milk contain protein, carbohydrates and fat, though in slightly different proportions. There are no added sugars in oat drink but oats contain natural sugar maltose, compared with the lactose.

    The fat in oat drink is mostly unsaturated, both from the oats and from the added rapeseed oil. Oats also contain fiber, where the betaglucans have a cholesterol lowering effect. Cow's milk, on the other hand, mainly consists of saturated fat, lack fiber and have a higher protein content. The enriched oat drink (blue carton) contains vitamin D, riboflavin, calcium, and vitamin B12, corresponding with the vitamin and mineral level in milk.

    We believe that a nutritionally balanced drink should contain carbohydrates, fat and protein. At the same time, it's important to remember that it's the diet as a whole that must be taken into consideration.

    I hope this information helps you with the needs you require, please feel free to contact us again if you have any other queries.

    All the best,
    Åsa
