PLANT EXTRACT CHARACTERISTICS

Oat milk is obtained by the liquid extraction of the complete seed. This extract is then concentrated.

BOTANICAL FACT SHEET

Oat is an annual herbaceous plant that is harvested at the end of the summer. It can grow to between 2 and 5 feet tall. Its fascicled roots produce stems that are slightly bent and end in flower panicles. It has linear, sheathing leaves with a large ligule. Its drooping spikelets are protected by two glumes. The fruit, called a caryopsis, is brown and lanceolate.

TRADITIONAL USES

Today, oat fruit – and sometimes oat straw – are used for medicinal purposes. Oats are also used to making nourishing, energy-restoring porridge. When drunk in an infusion, they can stimulate the appetite, relieve sore throats, and have a fortifying effect in cases of insomnia or nervous fatigue. In a decoction, oat has a soothing effect on itching, eczema, chilblains and dry patches of skin. Oat is also used in skin and hair care products.
