Find out how Oatly’s Oatgurt is redefining good ol’ fashion yogurt:
Oatgurt is a plant-based, drinkable yogurt made out of fermented oats. Since this product is made from only oats and water, it’s a great option for people with dietary restrictions. Oatgurt is vegan plus free of nuts, soy, and lactose.
Rich in Heart-Healthy Beta-Glucans and Unsaturated Fat
Beta-Glucans and Unsaturated Fat help to maintain healthy blood cholesterol levels. Beta-glucans is a soluble fiber with heart health benefits. Beta-glucans form a gel-like substance inside your gut, which can latch on to cholesterol and minimize its absorption. This can lower your blood cholesterol levels especially “bad” LDL cholesterol resulting in a reduced risk of heart disease.
Vitamin B Gold Mine
Potato starch, rapeseed oil as well as B vitamins such as riboflavin (B2) and vitamin B12 can be found in Oatgurt. B vitamins lower your risk of osteoporosis (hollow and porous bones), help improve your mood, combat oxidative stress and promote healthy hair, nails, and skin.
Promotes Bone Health
Oat milk is usually fortified with calcium and vitamin D which are great for your bones. Calcium is necessary for strong and healthy bones because it’s the primary mineral used to form them. Vitamin D helps the absorption of calcium from your digestive tract.
