Product information

Say Cheese! That is a strange way to start off a product description page. It says “cheese” but doesn’t claim that our new spread is actually made of “cheese” because it is not made of “cheese”. It has nothing whatsoever to do with “cheese” except that it is conveniently spreadable like one of those creamy spreadable “cheeses” and that you can use it in your cooking to make super creamy sauces or for baking cookies and “cheese” cakes. If you don’t find it in the supermarket with all the other Oatly products then have a look to see if it is hanging out with the other creamy “cheese” spreads— it’s the one with the good animal-free karma. Later.

What's Amazing
Pretend you were a bagel and you didn’t like getting covered in dairy products all day long because you thought plant-based eating was way more progressive but everyone that likes bagels also likes cream cheese which means sooner or later you are going to get smothered in dairy products and then all of a sudden, there is a spread that is 100% plant-based, completely free from milk and soy, yet performs like the creamiest of cream cheeses. Imagine how happy you would be to be a bagel at that exact moment.

What might be less amazing
If there is anything negative, maybe it’s the flavour. Or rather, the lack of flavour. Who’s ever said "plain" is their favourite flavour? Nobody tries a wine and detects notes of cherry, chocolate and plain. On the other hand, you can’t dislike it. It doesn’t thrill your taste buds, but it doesn't bother them either. Bottom line: it's plain. And when you think about it, maybe it's the Swedish-est flavour ever.

Sometimes the very thing that makes a product amazing ends up here in the What might be less amazing section and you will probably not be surprised that the thing we’re talking about that’s both amazing and less amazing at the same time is…fat. Saturated fat, to be specific, which in this case is a mixture of rapeseed oil and fully hydrogenated coconut and rapeseed oils. This plant-based fat concoction of ours is amazing because it makes oat spread taste and perform incredibly close to a cream cheese, but it’s also amazing because it doesn’t contain trans fat the way partially hydrogenated oils do. Actually, next time you read this oat spread page, this paragraph will be up under What’s amazing. Check back and see!

Last but not least
Spreads like cheese, looks like cheese, isn’t cheese. 100% plant-based. Perfect for baking or turning into frosting if you are into frosting.

Oat mylk based margarine, which is like butter

This isn't particularly tasty, it isn't particularly unpleasant either. Meat eaters and brain dead followers of social media faux health advisors losing their shit over hydrogenated fats and claiming they are banned!? Of course they aren't banned, easily-lead have mixed up hydrogenated oils with trans fats. Hydrogenated fats can contain trans fats, but I wonder if these worriers have also cut out biscuits, pizza, meat etc over a fear of trans fats? Check nutritional information and ingredients list beforehand and get a grip

hydrogenated veg fat

As other people have said this is not good for you. It's a shame as there are not many ingredients, unlike other vegan products. I bought this without reading the label, as I use some of their other products.

Unhealthy ingredients to be avoided

You assume this would be healthy but it certainly isn't as it contains hydrogenated vegetable fats which should always be avoided due to the significant health risks. I notice that Oatly put hydrogenated vegetable fats in quite a few of their things which is very disappointing and therefore have to be avoided.

hydrogenated fats!! I can hardly believe my eyes

Hydrogenated fats are known to carry significant health risks and have been banned in many countries. You rarely see it in ingredients now. Im shocked that this product contains them.
