US Dairy Alternative Beverages Market Examined in New Up-to-Date Report Published at MarketPublishers.com11 Jan 2012 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Today a large number of alternative food products carry the potential to enter the U.S. market at a later date on a commercial scale, either through domestic production or importation. The total U.S. retail sales of dairy alternative beverages are estimated to have reached $1.33 billion in 2011.
Consumers choose plant-based dairy alternative beverages for numerous reasons. Health issues including lactose intolerance, milk allergy, and the genetic disorder phenylketonuria (PKU) can be addressed through the consumption of dairy alternative beverages because these plant-based milks are free of animal proteins, in particular casein. Currently, the most commonly known and popular of the commercial plant milks is soymilk. Following in consumer recognition and consumption are almond milk, rice milk and coconut milk, in that order of preference.
