“You may think twice about Vanilla ice cream after reading this…”
Just recently learned: Vanilla Ice Cream and low quality Strawberry Sauce both contain castoreum A.K.A Beaver Anal Gland. Extracts from beaver glands are used in cosmetic products, like perfumes -that I was aware of. But I never knew that their anal glands were ground up and added to food products.
Apparently in Ancient Greek and Medieval times, use of glands and extracts were used as medicinal purposes , aphrodisiacs, healed impotence, constipation and as form of sexual attraction of the opposite sex (specifically when dealing with the glandular extracts).
Either way, its disturbing to know. I stopped eating dairy ice cream a year ago.. I will forever stick to my organic Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss Ice cream which is dairy, soy, egg, GMO free. Coconut Bliss offers the same rich, thick, velvety, sexy texture of dairy ice cream, minus the ANUS!
To each his own I guess at this point. If you still choose to eat dairy (vanilla) ice cream, do your thang. As for me, I’m not down with eating anus.. Never been THAT freaky!
