Plant-based milks, widely known as substitutes for dairy milk, are traditionally consumed by vegans and people with particular dietary restrictions. Almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk and soy milk are the most popular types. Non-dairy milk can also be made with hemp seeds, peanuts, cashew and other nuts, as well as grains, such as barley and oats.
In 2016, WhiteWave Foods Co. was the leading manufacturer of almond milk in the United States. The company's Silk brand is the leading ready-to-drink almond milk brand, and also carries a broad line of natural, flavored and blended soy, cashew and coconut milks. As of July 2016, French food and beverage giant Danone announced plans to buy WhiteWave to boost its U.S. portfolio.
