Hey,

IS just read the other night (at another forum...ssshhh) about all Oatly now being vegan, and sure enough, it's true. Anything fortified item with a bb date of 2012 or later has D2 in it, instead of D3.

Their stuff still isn't vegan certified or in any other way labeled as suitable for vegans, which I find a bit odd. I sent them an email enquiring about this, and thanking them for veganizing all of their products.

Info about what they sell here: http://www.oatly.co.uk/ (also contact information)

Interesting.
I always buy the organic anyway but it's good to know that I can get the fortified if they don't have organic instead of going without.

Bran flakes, strawberries and raspberries with oatly.

Is the organic the orange box one? That's what I get for IS, since it was the only unfortified one, but I think I never realized it was organic!

It was only the fortified stuff that was unvegan before, due to the Vitamin D.

I didn't know whether Oatly was vegan or not, but always presumed it was. I've never bought it before, sticking to unsweetened soya milk instead. I've bought coconut milk in the past, but soya has been my preference for years. How does Oatly differ in taste from soya milk and/or coconut milk? Folic acid doesn't appear in the soya milk I buy, so I might give Oatly enriched a go this week

Yep, the orange one. Just organic oats, water and a bit of sea salt. Yum!

Organic ones from Whole Foods. Co-op used to have vegan ones but I haven't seen them for a while. The Whole Foods one are quite expensive so I only get them when they're on special.

I find Oatly to be quite malty and sweeter than plain soya milk. I don't like soya milk much so stick with oat and rice milks.

Okay, all the ones I have seen have honey in them.

Doesn't Kelloggs have some vegan ones (bran flakes/sticks)? I've bought some when we've been on holiday, but I don't really do breakfast at home so often. I think H&B has some too.

Yeah, I think some Kelloggs are okay but normally buy organic cereals with as little in as possible as it makes working out what is vegan easy
H&B do nice bran sticks, I love them with banana and sultanas.


I love cereals!

Ditto on the cereal love. I would eat it for dinner if I didn't live with someone pickier

Have you tried rice or almond milk? Almond milk, or that Hazelnut-Rice Dream stuff are what I prefer.

I found out about this six months ago and told the Vegetarian Society's local contacts, who didn't believe me.

I've tried rice milk, which is fine with things in it (like cocoa powder), but I'm not a fan of it on its own. I've not tried almond milk, I'll have to see if I can find some.

I was a massive milk addict - used to go through four pints a day. On my own. Psychologically, I'm having a tough time finding a replacement.

Just thought I should bump this thread to say that I've just tried an oat milk by Provamel. Since I'm an experienced plant milk taster who have tested many different plant milks over a number of years, I thought you would appreciate my review of how to these two oat milks compare: Provamel vs Oatly.

First off: Taste. Okay, it's pretty simple: Oatly is the drink of the gods whereas Provamel kinda sucks. I was extremely disappointed. It sort of reminds me of some of the rice milks I've had, none of which have been very good.

Second comparison: Ingredients. Except for the organic Oatly (which has no added oils), the other Oatlys contain the superior rapeseed oil. In contrast, the inferior Provamel oat milk contains inferior sunflower oil. Oatly wins again.
