Grain milk is a milk substitute made from fermented grain or from flour. Grain milk can be made from oats, spelt, rice, rye, einkorn wheat or quinoa.

Grain milk looks very similar to cow's milk. It has a lower protein content and a higher carbohydrate content than cow's milk. Grain milks may have calcium and some vitamins (especially B12) added to them.

Grain milk is low in saturated fat and contains no lactose, which is beneficial for those who are lactose intolerant. Grain milk also lacks milk protein, making it suitable for vegans and people with milk allergies.

Grain milk can come in plain, vanilla, chocolate or a variety of other flavours. Like unflavoured grain milk, it is often available with added nutrients. There are also grain milk cream and desserts available.
