Of course, going back to the original post about ice cream containing carrageenan - its worth noting that carrageenan is definitely NOT an essential ingredient of icecream. In fact really the only essential ingredient is actually real dairy cream. Carrageenan, chicken fat, and all sorts of other things can be added to poorer quality icecream to give it the "creaminess" that is desired. If you find a really good brand that uses a recipe that relies on cream, that uses all natural flavourings (vanilla, cocoa, real fruit etc), then ice cream is wonderful and you don't have to think about the nasties in it. Until recently New Zealand icecream used to be pretty reliable and amazing - legally it couldn't be called "ice cream" if the fat part of it wasn't 100% cream. Unfortunately in recent years they have bowed to industry pressure and now some brands will use other fats like chicken fat to boost it. In the UK both Orkney and Shetland (blue coo) "ice cream" is real, and 100% cream based too, as well as some of the organic ones you can get elsewhere - it just tastes so different from other stuff.

That is a good point. We routinely buy Breyer's because the list of ingredients is very short and readable by a young child smile The cheaper the ice cream gets, the longer and more unpronouncable the ingredient list ... like everything, quality costs.

My two cents: Haagen-Dazs. Vanilla flavor ingredients: cream, skim milk, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla extract. Really creamy. Breyers is good, too. Just don't get Dreyer's. Not the same.

Thanks for the info, I had no idea the stuff was in ice cream, even by favorite brand, and pudding mix. I knew it was in protein drinks, Slim-fast, etc.

My husband is not supposed to have it because he is on blood thinners, so I will need to read every label.
