How Bad is Ice Cream for your Health?
So, just how Bad is Ice Cream for you?
Just how bad is ice cream for you has always been something I was concerned about. I knew it was not a healthy food option but probably like all of us gave in and bought it anyway. Life was hectic and the rest of my family’s diet was healthy. What was the harm? We all deserve to splurge every now and then! Don’t we?
My passion is healthy eating and so I am writing a series of “Super Healthy” eBooks full of amazingly healthy recipes. For my latest eBook “30 Super Healthy Kids Ice Cream Treats” I decided to do a little bit of research into “how bad is ice cream” The results were so horrific that I decided to create a whole eBook of healthy ice cream recipes. Check out these tantalizing pictures below of some of my healthy ice cream recipes. They are from my eBook “30 Super Healthy Kids Ice Cream Treats” For big kids too!
How bad is Ice Cream with all its Additives?
Now I’m talking about store bought ice cream. I’ll tell you how good my ice cream is further down.
The list of chemical additives in this delicious treat was so long I felt like I was researching for a science project. It was glaringly obvious that many ice creams today are simply chemical concoctions in appealing packaging. Certainly not fit for human consumption.
- Diethyl glycol – a cheap chemical used to replace eggs and commonly found in anti-freeze and paint removers
- Aldehyde C-17 – cherry flavoring additive is an inflammable liquid used in dyes, plastics and rubber
- Piperonal – used to imitate vanilla is a lice killer
- Ethyl acetate – pineapple flavor can also clean leather and textiles.
- Butyraldehyde – used in nut flavored ice cream and rubber cement.
- Amyl acetate – a banana flavor and used as an oil paint solvent
In addition to all these chemicals, stabilizers, emulsifiers and other harmful ingredients are mixed in to titillate our taste buds and trick us into believing we’re getting the real deal.
I hate to say it but when you are indulging in a delicious bowl of ice cream you are really eating anti-freeze, oil paint solvent, leather cleaner and lice killer!
And it’s still allowed to be called ice cream!
How Bad is Ice Cream? – it gets Worse!
Ice cream is made from milk. Dairy cows are injected with synthetic chemical hormones (estrogen) to make the cows grow faster and produce more milk. These hormones are transferred into the ice cream and into your children. I read that some American girls who are great ice cream eaters are developing breasts at the tender age of 8 or 9.
This is what the chemical food industry has given us!
How Bad is Ice Cream when its full of Sugar!
What makes ice cream so sweet? Only the most addictive drug in the world – sugar
Beware, the dairy industry has been very clever and knows how to hide sugar in its products. Sugar and other unhealthy sweeteners come in many disguises such as…
The last 2 are artificial sweeteners shown to cause cancer.
I found a list of the reasons why sugar is bad for the body and guess how many there were?
146 reasons to avoid sugar!
It’s ok I’m not going to list them all here but suffice to say avoid sugar at all costs!
When it comes to our children’s delicate systems it is disturbing to note that sugar can cause hyperactivity, anxiety, difficulty concentrating and crankiness.
Now the Good News
If you feel like I have just pulled the carpet from under your feet then I’m sorry but I do have a solution.
My healthy ice cream!
Undoubtedly the number one reason we all love ice cream is the smooth creaminess and delicious sweet taste.
So it would be pointless to create a super healthy ice cream that fell short in the taste department. After all I was going to have super critics! Yes, you and your family! I knew there would be no getting an inferior product past them.
I rose to the challenge and won!
