FDA Submits Draft Guidance on Milk Alternatives Labeling and Voluntary Nutrient Statements

The FDA has submitted draft guidance on the labeling of plant-based milk alternatives and voluntary nutrition statements.  The guidance was submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review on March 31, 2022.  In 2018, FDA issued a request to solicit feedback on the labeling of plant-based products using dairy terms. There has been much debate as to which, if any, dairy descriptors can be used to describe plant-based milk alternatives. Development of guidance may also impact some existing standards of identity for dairy.
