When we decided to do a latte version of our cold brew coffee, one of the first decisions was which milk to use, should we go for a dairy milk or an alternative and if we went for an alternative which would be best!
As well as being guided by sustainability principles and changing tastes amongst UK consumers, the final product had to taste good and also be as nutritionally positive as possible.
So what is oat milk? It is made by blending water with oats, which are then strained to produce the liquid format. We found in our tasting tests that oat milk blended better with coffee and was a healthier alternative to soya milk.
