US dairy farmers have a new threat to their business - heat waves.
While a powdered version has been available for some time, a Swedish concern, Veg of Lund, is using a formula based on research by Professor Eva Tornberg of Lund University to produce a white, milky liquid under the brand name Dug.
It will be marketed as vegan-friendly and free from allergens such as lactose, gluten and nuts. It's apparently also low in sugar and saturated fats and has added calcium, vitamin D and folic acid.
It is also said to produce less carbon dioxide than dairy farming, use about half the land it takes to grow the equivalent amount of oats used for 'oat mik' and use 56 times less water than the all-time environmental disaster, almond 'milk'.
