THE QUALITIES AND BENEFITS OF OAT MILK

Low in calories, cholesterol-free, and free of soy, nut, coconut, and dairy - Minor Figures oat milk is also rich in unsaturated fat and helps maintain a recommended cholesterol level. There are no emulsifiers or other additives.

Minor Figures oat milk is not overly sweet or excessively heavy. It has a smooth and creamy texture and an obvious oatmeal-like flavour. Sadie Russell from The Drive Coffee Bar in Vancouver describes it as "whole milk that has been left in a bowl of oatmeal."

Oat milk froths into stable-textured foam with few bubbles that is easy to pour. Sweet, thick, and rich, with a nice mouthfeel and a mild flavour. Oat milk has many health benefits thanks to the oats within, and these benefits include soluble fiber and vitamins.

THE QUALITIES AND BENEFITS OF OAT MILK

- Oat milk has less protein than dairy milk and soy, but more protein than other plant-based beverages such as almond, cashew, coconut, and rice. 

- Oat milk has the most fiber compared to any dairy or nondairy milk option. Cow's milk has no fiber, and oat milk has an average of 2 grams per serving.

- Oat milk is not as nauseatingly-sweet as soy or almond milk can be. Oat milk tends to be higher in carbohydrates, but it is providing energy through these carbs opposed to fat, which can typically be the case with most nut milks. Cows milk contains 2-8% lactose which gives the cow milk a certain amount of sweetness without added sugar.
