 AMS Final Rule Sets Current Fluid Milk Product Definition  

An AMS final rule maintains the current fluid milk product definition's compositional standard of 6.5% nonfat milk solids criterion and incorporates an equivalent 2.25% true milk protein criterion for determining if a product meets the compositional standard. The final rule also determines how milk and milk-derived ingredients should be priced under all federal milk marketing orders when used in products meeting the fluid milk product definition, and provides exemptions for drinkable yogurt products containing at least 20% yogurt (by weight), kefir and products intended to be meal replacements from the fluid milk product definition.

A referendum was held and the required number of producers approved the issuance of the orders as amended. Full Notice
