The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced draft industry guidance entitled “Labeling of Plant-Based Milk Alternatives and Voluntary Nutrient Statements: Guidance for Industry.” The draft guidance notably proposes that plant-based milk products continue to be sold and labeled as “milk” in marketing and packaging materials. The document also recommends voluntary packaging statements conveying how plant-based milk alternatives nutritionally compare with standard cow’s milk. FDA is accepting comments through April 24, 2023, and is particularly interested in input on nutritional disclosure information.
