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.

Non-dairy vegetarian drink.

Most of the rest of the ingredients are water and sweetener.

The proposal should be changed to include milks from any lactating animal.

No one confuses dairy milk with Milk of Magnesia or Milk Duds, so there's no need to change those. The slippery slope is a logical fallacy.

GG I agree about animal milk.

How about Non-dairy “milk” replacement drink.

Surimi is a crab substitute and is frequently labeled or presented as “krab.” So why not some alternate spelling, like “milque?”

The label plainly STATES "CONTAINS NO MILK." It should also state "CONTAINS NO MUSCLE, EITHER!"

But if it has milk proteins, in Sweden it does contain milk since milk proteins is part of the milk... Muscle milk sound discussing.

Yeah, weird some lactose milk products are not allowed to be label milk but milkdrink... so soy milk should be soydrink in my world.

So will they be banning the word for that stuff the baby drinks when it's breast fed?


There are so many things that the US government should be turning it's attention to and it's wittering about this! Even the EU isn't so stupid as to get onto this bandwagon.

You are mistaken.
EU court bans dairy-style names for soya and tofu

Soy milk or almond milk..... I've never seen an almond nut or soy bean with a nipple.

How so? Changing the name of "Soy milk" doesn't change the need for real cow's milk. Dairy will still be dairy. And I feel that any milk that comes from a teat is real milk.

When it's manufactured from various vegetable products, it's not milk.
