Perhaps it’s the creamy coldness that just melts in your mouth…
Maybe it’s the comforting feel of fat and sugar hitting the back of your throat…
For whatever reason, there’s just something about ice cream. Ice cream is the comfort food of choice in our house.
Yet, reading the list of ingredients on your average supermarket ice cream should give you pause.
There can be up to 32 grams of sugar in a single serving!
Also, did you know that the ice cream industry has a dirty little secret?
It’s true. The secret is that if EVERYONE who manufacturers ice cream puts this ingredient in their recipes, they do not have to reveal it.
What is that ingredient, you ask?
What Does Your Radiator Have In Common With Your Ice Cream?
Propylene glycol keeps the ice cream from freezing rock hard by absorbing the water molecules that would form ice crystals in your freezer. The ice cream is scoopable straight from the freezer.
Still not following?
Propylene glycol is also the same ingredient used in radiator fluid. Now, the FDA has decided that a small amount of this is considered safe for you.
How much is a “small amount”. One serving a week? Two? What if you eat two or more servings daily? (Because ice cream isn’t the only food containing propylene glycol.)
At what point does this “generally recognized as safe” ingredient become toxic?
