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.

This is the best oat milk I have tried. The Plain Zero Sugar is especially good if you have a lactose issue. It is great in coffee also. I highly recommend it.

I love the Plain in my coffee. Plus it’s less expensive than other brands of oat milk, at least here in Canada. I really appreciate your explanation about the added sugars – I was confused about that when I looked at the ingredients panel.

I have been trying to find an alternative to cows milk, nothing came close, the after taste, the viscous consistence until Chobani Oat.
thank you!

Got the oat milk vanilla and I am now a chobani drinker. When looking at all the plant based milks something drew me to the oat milk, It’s now the best decision I’ve made in a long time. Also cheaper then the lactose free milk I’ve been buying for years.

Tastes like if dairy milk was oat flavored.

I tried the plain original and it tastes extremely similar to dairy milk to me. It’s like cow’s milk with a slightly oat-y aftertaste. As someone who has mostly drank soy milk all my life it’s a little too rich for me, and I can really only handle it drinking it plain, so I probably won’t be buying it regularly. But if you are looking for a dairy substitute that tastes very similar this seems like great choice. I’ve tried Chobani, Planet Oat, and Trader Joe’s oat milks, and Chobani is the only one that I’ve actually been able to finish, and the only one that tasted at all comparable to cow’s milk. It’s also around a dollar cheaper than a lot of other brands.

I love oats. This oat milk is creamy and holds together great. I like that there are digital coupons for the plain oatmilk. Thanks for explaining why it has “added sugars” produced from the oat itself. Tastes great too, you don’t want a whacky flavor.
