soy beverage and nuts

We as an industry should lobby for not allowing those products to be called milk. See June 23, 2014, Hoard's Dairyman Intel article, "Milk alternatives have dairy cornered." Milk comes from mammals. Have you ever seen the udder of a soy grain? That's not milk, that is juice and should be labeled as so. Labeling as milk misleads the consumer to think that those products are as good as milk and have no shortfalls.
