Dairy companies are fighting with soy milk producers over what can be called milk

Is soy milk or almond milk actually milk? How about cheese made from tapioca and coconut oil? These are the kinds of questions that might be debated before Congress, thanks to the Dairy Pride Act. Introduced in January, the bill aims to impose FDA labeling standards on dairy products.
