Oat milk is a plant based milk derived from whole oat grains by extracting the plant material with water. Oat milk has a creamy texture and oatmeal-like flavor, is manufactured in a variety of flavors, and comes sweetened and unsweetened.
Since oat milk is made from fiber-rich oats, it has higher levels of carbohydrates than other milk alternatives, but contains no saturated fats. Oat milk contains oat beta glucans, which can help maintain normal cholesterol levels when you consume 3g a day as part of a balanced diet.
