Does anyone know...? or know where I might find the word for oatmilk in French so I could look it up? Once I have oatmilk I can relax and buy as much vin rouge and camembert as I like, I know the French words for those things... smile

also, it needs not to be made in a nut factory, nuts are an issue. I've found Alpro has a coconut, soya and an oat milk, but the nuts are the thing, and I now they make almond milk... Does anyone know where I can buy this?

Probably only available in bigger supermarkets rather than smaller ones, it's normally referred to as "Boisson d'avoine" (oat drink) where avoine = oat, rather than using the word for milk (lait) but the idea of lait and avoine together will be understood. Putting in "Boisson d'avoine" into Google image search will show you the sort of packaging you're looking for, as does a search on a French supermarket online shop.

You're looking for lait d'avoine (oat milk). I would say look for the brand Bjorg but they make almond milk too and I suspect probably in the same factory.... Oatly is another brand that is sold in France but they can't guarantee that nuts are not anywhere in their products. What brand do you normally use? Where will you be in France?

Thanks, I would have gone for Oatly, I didn't know EU made nut products. Apparently Alpro have nut free oat milk in Europe in Carrefour supermarkets for anyone else travelling to France.
