What happens to the pulp of oat and soy milk?

While many people choose plant-based milk as an animal-friendly alternative, strangely enough, the pulp that is released goes to the livestock industry. But that can be done differently, as oat and soy percentage Bart Grobben of De Nieuwe Melkboer discovered.

The milk is the residual product

“Although pulp sounds like a residual product, the milk is actually the residual product,” says Grobben. The oat and soy pulp are still full of proteins and fibers after making the milk. Grobben also thought it would be a shame to throw away this nutritious product or give it to the cows.

But to make a suitable product from pulp; that took some doing. “The difficulty is to get a good taste,” says Grobben. Yoghurt with pulp often has a mealy and sandy taste. “The texture is not pleasant at all.”


That is why Grobben started pioneering with his company and has from scratch discovered what does work. Now the pulp no longer becomes animal feed, but goes back into the milk or is added to the yogurt. “If you do that right, you get a full and creamy product with a good texture.”

And in this they are currently unique. “We can proudly say that everything is in the yogurt and it tastes even better.” They hope to soon be able to successfully process the pulp into milk.
