Bored Cow or Oat Milk?
Don’t get us wrong — we love plant-based milk, including oat milk. Unfortunately, many milk alternatives lack the flavor, texture, and/or nutrition that makes traditional dairy milk so popular. Before you go to the grocery store and pick up your favorite oat milk, come learn about the benefits of animal-free dairy milk for your body and your tastebuds (not to mention the planet)!
health & nutrition
Like Bored Cow’s animal-free dairy milk, most oat milks are fortified with Calcium, Vitamin D, and Vitamin A, and Vitamin B12. Unfortunately, oats don’t have much protein, which is why most oat milks have 3g or less of protein per cup. By contrast, Bored Cow contains 8g of real, animal-free milk protein per cup. Flavored oat milk also tends to contain a lot of sugar: up to 16g per cup! Bored Cow, on the other hand, has 0g of total sugars per cup. Did we mention it's cholesterol free too?
flavor & texture
While most oat milks are able to mimic the creamy texture of milk through the uses of vegetable oils, they also tend to have a distinctly “grainy” (or “oaty”) taste to them. Bored Cow was designed to look, feel, and taste exactly like the real thing. There’s no grainy or oaty vibes here! But like oat milk, you will find plenty of richness and creaminess.
impact & sustainability
All plant milks are better for the planet than traditional dairy, but that doesn’t mean they’re all created equal. Of all the plant-based milk alternatives, oat milk is arguably the most environmentally friendly overall in terms of carbon emissions, land use, and water use. Similarly, Bored Cow’s animal-free whey protein generates up to 97% fewer carbon emissions, requires up to 99% less water, and uses up to 60% less nonrenewable energy than whey protein from cow’s milk.

How Bored Cow Is Made
You may be wondering, "how can something be ‘animal-free’ and ‘dairy’ at the same time?" The secret is fermentation, one of nature’s most magical processes. Imagine a microscopic dairy farm where invisible ‘cows’ chow down on plant sugar, and turn it into real milk protein. It's a new way of making dairy that's better for people, kinder to animals, and easier on the planet.
