What is really in the ordinary store-bought ice cream?
Not all manufacturers are required to 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 flavour. It’s used as a cleaner for leather and textiles. If you are unlucky enough to inhale Ethyl Acetate vapours, well, it’s been known to cause chronic lung, liver and heart damage. One wonders what ingesting it does to one’s body and systems.
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?
