Chobani Oat Milk Zeros in on Demand with No Sugar Variety

0

In late 2019, America’s number one selling Greek yogurt brand launched their first “milk” line, and it was dairy free! It’s been so successful, that they’ve continued to expand the line of Chobani Oat Milk Drinks, and have most recently added a “Zero Sugar” variety.

According to a ruling against the manufacturer Oatly, when an enzymatic process is used to make oatmilk, it breaks down the oat starch into simple sugars, and effectively creates sugars that must be claimed as “added sugars.” Chobani mills old-style, but they also use an enzymatic process to break down the oats. This is why their Plain flavors are effectively free of sugar ingredients, but they have a high “added sugars” claim on the nutrition facts. But, they’ve reportedly “tweaked” the process so they could create an oatmilk with no sugars at all. But please note that their newer “zero sugar” variety is not made with organic oats.

Chobani Oat Milk is Now Pouring in Zero Sugar, Extra Creamy, and More

With the exception of the new Zero Sugar, Chobani Oat Milk Drinks use organic, gluten-free, Non-GMO, sun-dried oats from the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada. Chobani mills these oats in a centuries-old style, but uses modern techniques to create a creamy, fluid finish.

Best non dairy for coffee

I’ve been struggling a lot to find a non dairy milk for my coffee and the chobani oat original is by far the best I’ve had in years. It froths and there is no distinctive taste to it.

Plain extra creamy is whole milk in disguise

No lie, this is the best oat milk ever because it tastes just like whole milk. It has a great feel and taste that don’t upset your stomach. In shock at this oat milk because I’ve tried so many others and they all tasted odd, I miss drinking milk and this is basically it!

Amazing Taste but a bit pricey

It literally tastes like whole milk! I even got my boyfriend to drink it and he NEVER likes alternative milks, but he liked it so much he bought himself one. It was on sale for $2 but it’s normally about $4. I wish it stayed at about $2-3 given how much you get. Definitely worth it though! Check out Safeway or Fry’s when it’s on sale.

Vanilla is too sweet

Not sure why they add sugar and oil to the vanilla oat milk but it was too sweet for my taste. Plain was ok.

Legit tastes like whole milk, I had given up on oat milk but something told me to try this and I’m so glad I did. At $4 for less than half a gallon it’s definitely a treat, not an everyday thing.
