    I had my link at the ready, but you beat me well in advance. :smile:

    These posts are so silly. You gonna take those 'ingredients' and make a strawberry?

    It would be cool if you could.

    Oh, yeah, but some silly people would freak out and call it "Frankenfood".

    If you live in the country and raise your own beef, you take it to a "processing plant" where they "process it" from a live walking cow to your preferred packages of frozen meat. I never thought about it until someone above mentioned it.

    Yeah! I have a chemistry degree, I can eat all the food! Especially since I understand what the purpose of many of those ingredients are and that they are harmless...

    Then you understand that your ice cream has sand in it that is sometimes "processed" into glass.

    Silicon dioxide, you mean? Are you suggesting it should bother us? http://www.healthline.com/health/food-nutrition/is-silicon-dioxide-in-supplements-safe#basics2

    Also, it doesn't seem to be in all ice creams. Here are some ingredients of ice creams (using ones I occasionally buy):

    Nonfat Milk, Cream, Cane Sugar, Red Cherry Sauce [Tart Red Cherries, Cane Sugar, Morello Cherries, Invert Sugar Syrup, Corn Starch], Goat Cheese (Goat’s Milk, Culture, Vegetable Rennet, Salt), Dried Cherries (Tart Red Cherries, Sugar, Sunflower Oil), Tapioca Syrup, Water, Tapioca Starch, Sea Salt. Contains: Milk. Gluten free.

    Nonfat Milk, Cream, Cane Sugar, Roasted Pecans [Pecans, Peanut Oil, Sea Salt], Whiskey, Tapioca Starch, Sea Salt, Natural Flavors. Contains: Milk, Wheat, Tree Nuts (Pecans).

    milk· sugar· cream· peanuts· egg and egg yolks· dextrose· coconut oil· cocoa (processed with alkali)· cocoa butter· skim milk· chocolate· salt· milk fat· carob gum· soy lecithin· natural flavors· vanilla extract

    milk· sugar· cream· pistachios· dextrose· carob gum· vanilla extract· natural flavor

    Ice cream doesn't have sand in it.

    Do you have any idea of what the actual percentage of it is in volume in actually in ice cream? For instance we have iodine in our bodies. If high enough it's toxic. However the 150 mcg for most adults is about daily average. That's .00015 grams and if you know how much a gram is compared to a person who is 150lbs, you'd see that's a pretty insignificant amount by volume. Volume MATTERS.

    Anybody notice that the Huddle statue at The Star in Frisco, TX, only has 9 players? That's kind of emblematic of the regulars carrying on a conversation when the OP never returns. Something's missing.

    OP may be lurking. Or someone else may be. Just because they aren't responding at all doesn't mean they aren't "listening."
