Oatly, lactose intolerance and cow's milk protein allergy

All Oatly products are totally dairy-free, meaning they're free from lactose and milk protein.

It's not unusual to see soya allergy in people who are allergic to cow's milk (1,2,3), but fortunately all Oatly products are also soya-free.

What’s more, because most of our oat drinks in the UK are fortified with calcium, iodine, riboflavin, vitamins B12 and D you can trust that these important nutrients aren't missing from the diet. For those who can't or don't wish to drink cow's milk, Oatly is a healthy and completely dairy-free alternative.
