PACKED WITH OATS. NOT SUGAR.
Let’s face it. Many of the flavored oat drinks out there are like sugar with a helping of water. 16g of sugar? You might as well eat a bag of candy – and that’s what the leading competitor is using in its chocolate version, sad-LY. At Elmhurst, we’ve discovered that whole grain oats, used plentifully, yield their own natural sweetness. Our single-serves have no more than 7g sugar per carton. That’s worth taking along for the ride.
LOWER SUGAR THAN OTHER BRANDS
We figure if you are packing the kids off with plant milk, you’re expecting less sugar than, say, a juice box or chocolate milk. Of course, kids are smart and can pick-out the healthy yucky stuff. Indulge them with a flavored Elmhurst oat milk and they won’t care that it has just 6g of sugar!
WHOLE GRAIN NUTRITION FROM OATS
What can 28g of whole grain (58% of your daily value) do? Plenty! Because it takes longer to digest, whole grain provides sustainable energy while its dietary fiber bolsters satiety, helping you feel fuller longer. Then there is heart health, for which whole grain is vital as part of a diet low in saturated fats and cholesterol.
ZERO ADDED GUMS OR OILS
When you’re full of substance, you can avoid the fluff. This is what we mean by simpler, better. The oats deliver the creaminess – not rapeseed oil, gellan gum, sunflower oil, locust bean gum, and other junk competitors are using. So, we’re easy on both body and conscience.

UNSWEETENED VS ORIGINAL
Elmhurst original and unsweetened nut and grain milks are built upon the same simpler, better platform: more source nutrition (up to 4x the nuts) with a clean label, free of needless additives like gums and oils. The unsweetened line is just a little simpler, bringing 5-6 ingredients down to 2-3. Added sugars, natural flavors, and (with the exception of oat) salt are left out to give you the most basic product possible. Like the original varieties, Elmhurst's unsweetened milks have a variety of functions not limited to drinking.
WHY DRINK UNSWEETENED
Sugar, like anything, is a moderation exercise. What is “moderation”? There is no exact rule. It depends on your diet and personal goals. However, reasons for switching from sweetened to unsweetened plant milk follow the pattern of research. Substantially reducing added sugar intake – especially of added and refined types – may help with cardiovascular health and to manage weight gain, for example.1,2
If you still prefer our standard varieties, that’s fine, too! No original Elmhurst grain or nut milk contains more than 6g added sugar per serving.
- -Original Milked Almonds – 6g added sugar (12% DV)
- -Original Milked Cashews – 1g added sugar (2% DV)
- -Original Milked Hazelnuts – 4g added sugar (8% DV)
- -Original Milked Walnuts – 4g added sugar (8% DV)
- -Original Milked Oats – 1g added sugar (2% DV)
It's more than just nutritional data, however. For non-drinking applications – like coffee, cereal, smoothies, cooking, and baking – our unsweetened varieties offer both flexibility to control sugar levels and neutrality that cooperates with other flavors.
