Let's talk about oats
Heads up, here come the oats and they’re coming straight your way! At Alpro, we’ve always appreciated the soft, subtly sweet taste of oats. Which is why they find their way into so many of our deliciously oat-based foods and drinks. And they don’t even have to travel far to get to us. All our oats are grown close by in Europe. Fewer food miles, better for the planet.

Unlike manufactured sweet drinks (or other sweetened drink alternatives), oat drink has no added sugars.
