Process

This is how we make our oatmilk:

Pardon us if we use technical language for a moment, but we are enthusiastic about our unique manufacturing process, which was invented about 25 years ago at a famous university in Sweden by Oatly’s founder, Rickard Oste. He wanted to create a nutritious, delicious drink for people who couldn’t have dairy or who just didn’t like it, while using a primary ingredient that didn't overly tax our environment. And a pretty well-known grain called oats did the trick. Thanks to Rickard’s now patented process, we can keep the loose oat fiber (the beta-glucans, as you may know) in all Oatly products — we are proud to say with our heads held high.

Wait, so what is oatmilk anyway?

Oatly oatmilk is a vegan, plant-based milk alternative made from gluten-free oats. It’s pretty simple really. Our oat base is just oats and water. But it’s what we do with those oats and that water that makes Oatly so special. What a perfect segue…
