When milk isn't milk

https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/nut...qMH?li=BBnb7Kz


So if the FDA cracks down on non-dairy types of 'milk', and needs to find another name for it besides 'milk', what should it be called?


Almond milk, Soy milk, Rice milk.....none of these are milks, so what to call them?

This is a pet peeve of mine. Just because it's a white liquid doesn't mean you can call it milk.

How about calling it, "Indeterminate Liquid Flavored with Nuts or Other Stuff" ILFNOS for short.

Not sure if you can believe this but somewhere I saw that a half-gallon of almond 'milk' contains about 2-3 almonds worth of content. Not sure what the rest of the stuff in the carton is.

Its not just non-dairy "milks," is anything but COW's milk. So goat milk and sheep's milk wount be able to be called "milk," even though that's literally what it is.
