Q: What type of vitamin D is used to fortify Oatly products?
A: Foods fortified with vitamin D use either vitamin D2 or D3. While discussion continues regarding which type is most available to the body, The Swedish National Food Agency considers both forms of vitamin D to be equally effective. 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.
Oatly Oat Drinks Skinny, Original, Semi, Barista Edition, Whole, Chocolate and Chocolate Deluxe are all rich in vitamin D, providing 1.1 µg/100 ml.
All of our drinks (except organic oat drinks) 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 European legislation does not allow this.
Oatgurt is also a source of vitamin D contains 1.1 µg/100g.
