      Is oat milk the hot new vegan alternative?

      Vegans have been using almond milk and soy milk as an alternative to dairy.  However, now it’s oat milk that is the hot new thing buzzing on the circuit. How does oat milk score brownie points over the rest?

      Oat milk has a slightly sweet earthy flavor and a grainy texture which could take a little getting used to if you are having it for the first time. This milk also lends itself well to a variety of recipes and for baking. This is perfect for not just vegans but also those on a low-fat diet or have Allergies to dairy, soy, or nuts.

      Oat milk keeps the fiber content intact. This is very rich in beta-glucan and this helps in controlling Cholesterol. It’s also high in the B Vitamins thiamin and folate besides magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc and copper.

      Oat milk vs soy milk

      In recent times, soy milk has run into controversy. Some research states the presence of genetically modified organisms and phytoestrogens in this and these look like estrogen to the body. Oat milk on the other hand is free from such issues. Soy milk is rich in protein while oats may not contain as much protein.

      Oat milk vs almond milk

      Almonds are rich in protein but almond milk is not. Oats has some protein content too. Almond milk is low in calories and naturally lactose-free. Carrageenan is a common food additive extracted from red seaweed and usually used in almond milk preparation, this can irritate the gut. Oat milk is free from this. Taste wise, oat milk is more frothier and tastes closers to cow’s milk than almond milk.

      How to make oat milk

      Oat milk is commercially available but it’s simple enough to make at home. All you need to do is soak steel-cut or old-fashioned oats in water and then blend until smooth. The next step is to strain out the remaining solids. This can be stored in the fridge for up to four days.
