FDA releases draft guidance on how plant-based milk items should be labeled

Labels on plant-based milks may look different in the future.

(CNN)The plant-based milk you buy may soon have a revised label.

The US Food and Drug Administration issued draft guidance Wednesday on how companies should identify plant-based products that are marketed and sold as alternatives to dairy milk, such as almond, oat or soy milk.
Any plant-based milk product with the word "milk" in its name should include a statement explaining how the product compares with dairy milk, according to the draft guidance.
