Q: What type of vitamin D is used to fortify Oatly products?
A: Foods fortified with vitamin D use either vitamin D2 or D3. The evidence regarding whether vitamin D2 and D3 are bioequivalent is inconclusive. However, vitamin D2 is considered a good alternative to vitamin D3. You can find more information on vitamin D bioavailablity (here).
It's important to us to ensure that our products are totally vegan-friendly, so we use vitamin D2 in Oatly products. It's derived from the UV-irradiation of plant sterols or yeasts and is completely suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
All of our drinks (except our organic drinks) are rich in vitamin D, providing 1.1 µg/100 ml. They are therefore rich in vitamin D - as well as calcium, iodine, riboflavin and vitamin B12.
Oatly organic oat drinks are not fortified with vitamin D as current legislation does not allow this.
Oatgurt is also a source of vitamin D contains 1.1 µg/100g - as well as calcium, iodine and vitamin B12.
