Oatly Healthy Oat Organic Drink
Advantages: Tastes ok and is healthy
Disadvantages: None really unless you don't appreciate oats of course lol
I love milk and I drink alot of it. Sadly though it's full fat milk that I love so of late I have been looking for healthier alternatives!
I found this product in my local Sainsburys and soon as I saw the word Oats mentioned Id ecided I just had to try it because I love porridge and so far after trying soya milk that really isn't my thing at all so this was very worth a go in my mind!
Comes in a 1L white and light blue box with a twist on/off plastic lid to the top of it/ On the front there is a glass of the said milk and in red and black writing I'm told it is Made From Pure Oats 'Oatly' and that it is calcium & vitamin enriched and that it lowers cholesterol and contains oats. On the back of the box I'm told all about the product and then on another side of the box I'm given a list of ingredients, given contact details for Wassan International (the manufacturer of this product) and there is a bar-code on there. Nice enough carton and it's very informative.
A Bit About The Product According To The Carton:
There is nothing finer than Oats. Oats are a gift from nature, made for us to enjoy.
Do we exaggerate? Maybe a little, but that doesn't change the fact that Oatly is a healthy and tasty alternative to milk and soya.
Oatly is free from added sugar, low in saturated fat and contains Oat Fibre. Oat fibre, eaten as part of a healthy diet, can help lower your cholesterol levels.
Oatly is made from carefully selected oats, based on a unique process developed at the university of Lund in Sweden. It is free from soya, lactose and milk protein.
Produced by Oatly AB, which is a Swedish company which specialises in the research and development of health foods made from oats.
In colour it's an off grey sort of colour. Has no real smell to it and you can use it as you would milk or soya etc.
Taste wise well it's actually ok to be fair to it. It isn't too sweet or salty or anything it's just like drinking oats really! It is a bit chalky if drank with nothing added to it and it is always best served chilled.
You can make milkshakes with this, add it to drinks (coffee tea, hot choc) etc, it blends well with things but the taste of oats always does come through so there's not disguising that! Of course use it in porridge oats for extra flavour is a good one and I love that!
I don't find this unpleasant to drink alone but do prefer to add it to things and all it all it's far tastier (in my opinion) than soya milk anyway!
It is a feel good drink low in everything but what it should be I.E taste. It lasts once opened for 5 days if stored in the refrigerator and is a versatile product full of goodness! I'm getting used to drinking this more and more with each passing day now!
