What is really in the ordinary store-bought ice cream?
Not all manufacturers list their additives, and even if they do we might not know exactly what those tongue twisting scientific names mean… here is a little insight into what is really used to flavour “conventional” ice cream:
Diethylglycol — a chemical used instead of egg yolks. It’s also used in antifreeze and paint removers.
Piperonal — it’s used in place of vanilla. It’s actually also used to kill lice.
Aldehydec-17 — a cherry flavouring. It’s inflammable and also used in aniline dye (aniline: a colorless, oily, poisonous benzene derivative, used in the manufacture of rubber, dyes, resins, pharmaceuticals, and varnishes), plastic and rubber.
Ethyl Acetate — a pineapple flavouring. It’s used as a cleaner for leather and textiles. Ethyl Acetate vapours are known to cause chronic lung, liver and heart damage when inhaled .
Butyraldehyde — a nut flavouring. It’s one of the ingredients in rubber cement.
Amylacetate — a banana flavouring. It’s also used as an oil paint solvent.
Benzyl Acetate — a strawberry flavour. It’s actually also a nitrate solvent.
Now you really want to make your own, don’t you?
Here is a great, easy recipe that is extremely versatile…

We are enjoying our machine a lot. We have experimented with quite a few flavours and have been happy every time! I double the recipes which allows our family to have ice-cream 2-3 times. I keep the bowl in the freezer all the time as it needs 12 hours freezer time, so I can quickly make ice-cream for evening dessert. I find we like it most if I churn for 30-40 minutes and then pour the soft ice-cream into a container in the freezer. Lovely!
