We know what you are thinking. If you drink Chai, you have to curl up on the sofa with your best friend forever and tell secrets. Not really. Sure, it’s good for that but stereotypical settings are so limiting. The cool thing about this product is that there are two cool things. Number one: you can heat it or you can drink it cold. If you heat it, all that cinnamon and cardamom and cloves and ginger will fill your room and make things cozy, which is perfect for some alone time with your BFF. Secondly, this product not only has all the power of oats but also is enriched with vitamins and minerals, specifically iron and folic acid, which is important for anyone who specifically is looking for some iron and folic acid.
Oat base (water, oats 10%), spice extract (cinnamon, cardemon, cloves and ginger), agave syrup (0,5%), iodised salt, iron, vitamins (folic acid, D2 and B12).Where does it come from?

Exotic with all the natural spices but also straight talking with fiber, not too much protein, good carbs and healthy fat*. Oh dear, did we use the F word. Fat as in 0.5% fat. And 0.5% added raw sugar. You can almost taste how wonderful this product is by looking at bonus additions on the package: Folic acid, D2, B12 and iron. And then those betaglucans**, hiding out in there just waiting to work their wonders on your heart.
what might be less amazing
The only thing that we have left out of this one is calcium, but we are working on it. Our current research is looking at ways to ensure that your body can absorb the calcium when served together with iron. The D2 in this product is great but to get the full recommended daily dosage of D you will need to compliment by running outdoors without sunscreen for 30 minutes or something, but that’s not so bad.

** 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.
