Illegalization of “vegetable milks”

Ilegalización de las “leches vegetales”

In recent years, there has been an increase in demand for "vegetable milks", which are drinks made from plants and used as alternatives to cow's milk. These non-dairy milks can be made with a variety of plants, such as almonds, rice, oats, coconut, soybeans, and others.

Although non-dairy milks can be a healthy and sustainable option for some people, some argue that the term "non-dairy milk" is misleading and that its use should be outlawed. These arguments are based on the fact that non-dairy milks do not contain the same amount of nutrients as cow's milk and therefore should not be called "milk" at all.

Another argument is that the use of the term "vegetable milk" can confuse consumers and make them believe that these drinks are just as nutritious as cow's milk. This can be especially problematic for people who rely on cow's milk as an important source of nutrients and who may be tempted to replace it with non-dairy milks without realizing that they are missing out on important nutrients.

Although it is true that non-dairy milks do not have the same nutritional profile as cow's milk, this does not necessarily mean that they should be outlawed. Many people choose non-dairy milks for health reasons or personal preferences, and don't necessarily expect them to have the same nutritional profile. In addition, there are many other drinks and foods that have names that do not accurately reflect their nutritional content, such as fruit and vegetable juices, without being required to change their names.

Instead of making non-dairy milks illegal, it is important that consumers are provided with clear and accurate information about their content and nutritional benefits, and that they are encouraged to compare different options and choose those that best suit their needs and preferences. By doing so, we can ensure that consumers have access to clear and complete information to make informed and responsible purchasing decisions.
