Toxins In Rice Milk Will Hinder Market Growth For Non-Dairy Milk Substitutes
The presence of highly toxic arsenic compounds in rice milk is acting as a restraint on the milk substitutes market. Rice milk is made from rice that carries huge levels of arsenic, a highly toxic chemical which is dangerous for human health and may cause cancer. According to a journal on food additives & contaminants published in 2018, arsenic proportion in rice milk has a mean value of 63%, which is dangerous for human health.
Manufacturers Of Non-Dairy Milk Substitutes Are Focusing On Improving Shelf-Life
Non-dairy milk producing companies are increasingly focusing on improving the shelf life of their products. Companies are trying to decrease the rate of bacterial formation in non-dairy milk through bacterial clarification using separators intended to remove bacterial spores. Ultra-pasteurization involves heating milk to a temperature of more than 280°F for at least 2 seconds that will kill harmful bacteria and increases shelf life to up to 120 days. For instance, soymilk produced by SunOpta is processed using ultra-pasteurization and has an extended shelf life of 12 months. Also, ultra-pasteurized almond milk by Pacific Foods has a shelf life of about a year.
