4. Oat Milk vs. Cow’s Milk

Oat milk has slightly fewer calories than regular milk but almost twice the carbohydrates. It does not contain as much protein, although its protein content is higher than most other plant-based milk. Unlike cow’s milk, oat milk changes texture when heated. For this reason, milk from oats cannot equally replace the dairy counterpart in recipes that require heat.
