    Honest Overherd Oat Milk Powder Review: A Sustainable Approach to Oat Milk

    Last Updated

    Overherd Oat Milk Powder Review – As a versatile, nutritious dairy alternative, Oat milk has amassed huge popularity in the realm of plant-based beverages. The neutral taste, creamy texture, and eco-friendliness have made Oat milk a tempting choice for health and environmental-conscious consumers alike. But is oat milk sustainable? Though oat milk is vegan and helps reduce carbon emissions, most well-known brands’ products are 90% water. You get only 10% of oat milk which is packaged in several layers of plastic. And this is what big corporations market as “Being Sustainable”. Really boomers? Really?

    On closer look, you pay mostly for water and transportation when you buy popular oat milk brands. And, that’s a rip-off! To make things worse, nobody seems to really care or know this, which is exactly what is wrong with our society. Gladly, team Overherd is here for a change. Personally, I am pretty much sold on their idea of sustainability. Hopefully, their efforts to save our planet and make our generations happier (excluding boomers from the list, of course!) become fruitful. But, are their products as sustainable as their ideology? Let’s dive into the details.

    Overherd Review – The Brand

    If you are trying to be a sustainable person, you must be aware of where and what you are supporting with your money. And so, the first thing I personally check out is the brand. My first impression of the official website of Overherd was “damn, that’s a cool website”! I love the way they have articulated all of their ideas, reasonings, and marketing into a simpler but a cool conversation model (Gen Z approved👍🏻). Simple but clear reasoning behind their efforts and honestly it makes sense. When we purchase one pack of oat milk powder from overherd, it makes 8 liters of milk.

    That is 8 fewer milk cartons and plastics, 91% less packaging weight, 10x less CO2 emissions, and less wastage. Another interesting fact about this brand is that founders have thought through the end-to-end journey of their products. While they supply the products in fully recyclable LDPE plastic pouches, it is still plastic. But the differentiation is, that they also advise on how to dispose of the empty pouches. Furthermore, they are making efforts to move away from plastics altogether. To make things even more sustainable and sociable, the company is open to any sustainable ideas for packaging which can be pitched to them via team@overherd.uk. Sounds cool!

    Overherd Review – The Products

    Launched in January 2023, the Overherd brand sells mainly powdered oat milk on a subscription basis. This gluten-free, organic oat milk powder is available to buy in 2 sizes – 4 liters and 8 liters. You can get them individually, or as a starter pack with includes powdered oat milk (4 or 8 liters), a 600ml glass bottle, and a recycled bamboo scoop. Neat!

    Overherd Oat Milk Powder Review

    Now for the main part, the powdered Overherd oat milk product review. In the following sections, I will touch base on the product ingredients, packaging, pricing, and my personal experience, before giving the final verdict.

    Overherd Ingredients

    1. Oats – Obviously! This Oat Milk powder contains 68% organic gluten-free oats which are naturally rich in minerals and vitamins.
    2. Coconut – The product includes coconut Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) powder (modified starch), which provides creaminess and healthy fats. MCT, for those who are unaware, helps with insulin resistance, weight loss, and waist loss.
    3. Chicory – Chicory root provides smoothness and prebiotic fiber goodness to help with digestion.
    4. Nutrients – Overherd oat milk powder is fortified with Calcium and Vitamin B12 for strong bones.
    5. And that’s it. Quite a small, but impressive list!

    Overherd Oat Milk Powder – Packaging

    The Overherd oat milk powder was delivered to my doorstep in a brown cardboard box sealed with branded paper tape. Quite impressed that this brand has gone the extra mile to achieve sustainability in every possible way. A simple, planet-first approach to cause a stir. Within the simple cardboard box was a cute pink pouch of oat milk powder, a 600ml glass bottle, and a bamboo scoop. An appealing pink fully recyclable LDPE pouch with a ziplock that seals in the goodness, I must say.

    Overherd Oat Milk Powder – Pricing

    Overherd sells oat milk powder in two sizes – 4 litres and 8 litres. The 4 liters pack is available for one-time purchase at £6.99 or can be bought at £5.99 on a subscription basis whereas 8 liters pack costs £12.99 (one-time purchase) or £10.99 (subscription). Here’s a quick math. Popular oat milk brands retail their fresh whole oat milk for a minimum of £2/litre at Tescos and Sainsbury. In comparison, Overherd costs £1.74/liter for a 4-liter pack and £1.62/liter for an 8-liter pack. That’s roughly £0.15 (minimum) saved per liter you chug in one-time purchases and 4/8 milk cartons less. If you opt for subscription packs, the savings are far higher.

    Overherd Oat Milk Powder – My Experience

    As mentioned before, I got the starter pack in the 4-litre size. Overherd oat milk powder is beige in colour with fine texture, and pleasant oats-coconutty smell. At first, I was skeptical of the product and made a small batch of 200ml oat milk with 2 scoops of the powder (just I like it creamy). And to my surprise, it tasted just fine. Smooth, creamy, and fresh oat milk with a hint of sweetness, which comes from the oats naturally. Later on, I went crazy and experimented with so many different things. Obviously to test its versatility!

    My word, that oat milk made with Overherd oat milk powder goes a long way. I went from making tea, coffee, and smoothies to cakes, cookies, and curries with this oat milk powder. Since I am not an avid milk drinker, the 4-liter pack lasted me almost 6 weeks. It is very economical and easy to use. Not to mention the convenience, especially when traveling or trekking.

    It’s lightweight, instantly but freshly made which tastes good. The glass bottle is very handy with milliliter markings and leak-proofing. All you need to do is scoop the powder into the bottle, add water, close the lid, and shake, shake, shake. The powder blends into milk and forths just by handshaking. No blender or electricity is needed!

    Another advantage I noticed was the space-saving inside the fridge, which is brilliant. I don’t have to spend electricity and fridge space to keep oat milk refrigerated throughout. The oat milk powder can be stored in a cool dry place for 4-5 months once opened. Only the leftover milk, if any, needs refrigeration. Also, very low wastage. Since I am making the oat milk for the quantity I need, the chances of having leftovers and wastage are extremely low.
