Much like plant-based imitators, precision fermentation technology is a sector working to create so-called animal-free dairy products. But, National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) Senior Vice President and Staff Counsel, Clay Detlefsen, says a real dairy product cannot be made with precision fermentation technology.
During a recent interview with the National Association of Farm Broadcasters, Detlefsen said the marketing of the products is misleading and lacks transparency.
He notes these companies are creating a non-dairy product, but trying to use the good name of dairy for marketing.
Detlefsen said it’s important that synthetic and plant based products have clear, concise and transparent labels.
