Taste-testing milk alternatives.
Judging by the dairy case at the supermarket, ever-increasing numbers of
Americans are settling back with tall, cool glasses of Not-Quite-Milk.
Soy, rice, and lactose-free products occupy as much shelf space as, or
more than, regular ol' cow juice. Recent concerns about the artificial
growth hormones used in many dairy cows have increased the audience for
ersatz milk beyond vegans, vegetarian eco-hippie types, those with milk
allergies, and the lactose-intolerant. (A recent article in the Boston
Globe looked at New England dairies that are capitalizing on the
growth-hormone fear.) With more people turning to milk alternatives, I
thought it was time to see which of these faux milks has the white stuff.
