   American Dairy Coalition Requests FDA Address Plant Based Labels
by American Dairy Coalition
Posted: Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 3:49PM EST

The American Dairy Coalition requests FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb to take immediate action and prohibit the use of “milk” in product labels used on plant-based alternative products.

Consumers rely on product labels, titles and advertising to make educated decisions on food products their families consume. Plant-based dairy alternatives that use the term “milk” vary dramatically in nutritional content from the FDA Federal Standard of Identity in law for milk products.  Allowing manufactures of dairy-alternative products to imitate true dairy products through use of the world “milk” requires FDA regulatory action. The FDA must stop the intentional imitation these manufactures are using to destroy the reputation our industry has worked so hard to create.
