Nut-based dairy alternative products could not be labeled as made from milk if a bill supported by U. S. Senator Tammy Baldwin is passed. The bill would apply to drinks, yogurts or cheeses made from plant-based liquids. The bill has the support of Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm in Southern Door. He says so-called milk made from almonds, walnuts or grains just doesn't measure up nutritionally.
A similar bill was introduced during previous sessions of Congress without ever being brought to the Senate or House floors for consideration.
