What Is Oat Milk? While almond milk and soy milk have long been on grocery store shelves, oat milk seems to be making a statement all its own. Another cow’s milk alternative, oat milk boasts some surprising nutritional benefits. Oat milk is typically made using gluten free oats and water. Like most milk products, it is also fortified with nutrients such as Vitamins A, D and Calcium. Being allergen free and protein packed means multi-person households can buy just one milk product to satisfy all. Compared to milk alternatives, oat milk is marginally higher in calories while boasting more fiber and protein.
