TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. - May 4, 2022 - PRLog -- Fortune Business Insights reports that Non-Dairy milk holds 73% of the Global Dairy Alternatives Market and that the dairy alternatives market in the U.S. alone is expected to reach $53.97 billion by 2028.


Non-dairy milk, also referred to as plant-based milk, is water infused with nuts, seeds, grains, legumes, coconut, or fruit. The resulting combination of chosen solid and water is then strained resulting in the flavored water known as plant milk. Most commercially available plant milks are fortified with additional vitamins and minerals and several are available in sweetened or flavored options. Types of non-dairy milk include:
  • Soy milk
  • Almond milk
  • Coconut milk
  • Oat milk
  • Hemp milk
  • Spelt milk
  • Rice milk
  • Pea milk
  • Pistachio milk
  • Walnut milk
  • Macadamia milk
  • Flax milk
  • Banana milk
  • Cashew milk
  • Hazelnut milk
  • Quinoa milk
  • Sesame milk


As you might guess, the process for making non-dairy milk varies slightly by type but all of them are suspensions that most often result from the main ingredient (such as almonds or cashews) being soaked in water, then blended into a puree (with more water), heated (boiled) for sterilization and then strained.

The efficiency of equipment like the DC Norris Jet Cook system brings remarkable savings and improved product quality by emulsifying, entraining, heating, and agitating in one vessel.


While non-dairy milks bring many benefits ranging from health to environmental impact, consumers are driving food businesses to pursue even more. This push is driving innovation in the non-dairy space with products like Joi Plant Milk Concentrates. Joi has developed concentrates and powders for popular non-dairy beverages (like oat, cashew, and almond milk) that are simply mixed with water by the serving. These concentrates offer manufacturers, restaurants, and more the benefit of safe extended shelf life even without refrigeration, reduced packaging waste, and eliminated fillers, gums, and added sugars.

Non-dairy milks are being used to make ice cream (even soft-serve!), yogurt, creamers, and more.


DC Norris has helped clients realize great success in their plant-based beverage production using the revolutionary Jet Cook system. Depending on the recipe, there are other options that non-dairy beverage producers may consider including our robust portfolio of kettles, woks, and Bratt pans (for toasting ingredients to enhance flavor) DC Norris also offers a full portfolio of bin and tote lifts, hoists and dischargers.
