What allergens do Oatly products contain?
When it comes to allergens, one thing is always for sure: all our products are dairy and soy free. But what about the rest?
First, look at the back of the carton you just purchased and presumably put in your fridge (or in the freezer, or perhaps the pantry, right next to the unopened apple jam jar). Where is it produced?
If it is produced in US, it is safe for those who are allergic to the top 8 allergens. If it is produced in EU, we follow the rule of 14 major (EU) allergens: if the product contains one of those, it is highlighted in the ingredients list. Simple as that.
When it comes to gluten, it also depends on where you live. In the US, our products are made from certified gluten-free oats and (consequently) labelled as gluten-free. In Europe and Asia, however, our products contain 100ppm mg gluten per kg of product and therefore they cannot, of course, be classified as gluten-free.
Nuts, then? Well, we don’t use nuts as an ingredient in any of our factories other than in the production facility where our ice-cream is produced (an obvious thing since it's where our Salty Caramel Hazelnut is produced), and we have strict procedures in place with our suppliers to minimize the risk of nuts being present in any of our other products. In other words, our products are nut-free, unless they are called “Hazelnut-something.”
If you are looking for more specific information, please write us a note and we’ll get back to you.

As a person with celiac disease, who really wants to try your products, is there any chance you will move toward a gluten free production in Europe as well?
The Norwegian celiac association has done testing on some of your products, and found the ppm value to be low enough to be classified as gluten free (<20ppm), thus I have started using these products.

Hello. Does your labelling (in the UK) also account for a “May contain” risk?

I'm so happy that Oatly is nut (and peanut / legume) free!!
It's near impossible to find vegan or ecological products without any type of nuts, beans, legumes and stuff... Almost everything these days contains beanflour, pea fiber, lupine, lentils, etc etc :-X
And there are loads of nut/peanut/legume allergy sufferers that also want to eat clean and healthy. So Oatly is my absolute favorite company in the whole wide world!
Would be terrific if you guys could start making Oatchocolate too by the way :-)

Where does the sugar you use for your products come from? I'm allergic to cane sugar but I'm ok with sugar beets.
