Could it be a rose by any other name is not a rose? That's what milk producers are trying to get the Food and Drug Administration to acknowledge when it comes to everything from soy, almonds, rice and more falling under the label of "milk." National Milk Producers are once again trying to get the FDA to stop the mislabeling of non-dairy products as milk. They first petitioned the FDA on stopping the practice a decade ago, and now state that non-dairy products have expanded beyond merely using the "milk" label; products made from rice, soy, and nuts are now including dairy-specific terms such as butter, cheese, yogurt, and ice cream. Check in your dictionary and you'll find the definition of milk in short refers to the liquid produced by mammals and used by humans; not "the liquefying of anything you can fit into a blender." Of course the last entry under the definition of milk is "to use for one's own benefit, to exploit" and perhaps that's the definition we should be concerned with here, it appears to be the most applicable. Hopefully the FDA will finally address the NMPF's concern over proper product identification labeling.
