Okay, so I might be a little dyslexic, but I definitely read the headline as "Lacoste-free" ice cream and was wondering what the clothing company had to do with ice cream in the first place.

I will say the same thing I say with "fat-free" ice cream:

How can it be ice cream without cream?
 
2013-11-01 12:36:55 PM
Coconut milk ice cream is my jam.

you're not the only one...

Aligators? in my ice cream? It's more likely than you think...

Technically, it's partially-digested ice cream.

I gave up ice cream for Lent and I've been delivered from my cravings for it.

My lactose intolerance makes any dairy product a lesson in abdominal bloating and explosive intestinal evacuation, so such a product would make eating ice cream possible again.

That is, if I were interested in eating it again. Which I'm not. Not since God helped me control my desire for it.

But how will I know I've eaten ice cream if I don't fart for 2 days afterwards?

James!: Coconut milk ice cream is my jam.


I have no dairy issues, ethical or medical, but I love coconut milk ice cream. It's delicious. I buy it. I make it. If I had to give up milk and cream tomorrow I'd be perfectly okay in the frozen dessert realm.
 
2013-11-01 01:07:49 PM
In the future all lactose's will be free.
 
2013-11-01 01:10:21 PM
Definitely cool- but I'll stick with the cup of Kefir I drink each day instead and enjoy anything dairy that I want without any of the side effects.

Seriously- if you're lactose intolerant, pick up a bottle of Kefir and give it a shot. I've found about a cup (the measurement, not the container...) a day counteracts any and all problems I have with dairy products- including much of the gas which lactaid pills just seemed to make worse.

So much this.  I haven't had real ice cream in a long time and I don't even miss it.

You're doing better than me--at a glance I thought it said, "Lacrosse-free" and thought I was having a stroke

So it's frozen yogurt. BFD.

(PSA: yogurts and cheeses, having been inoculated with yummy, lactose-eating microbes, are essentially lactose free.)

"Ice Cream" becomes an abstract label of "Thing that behaves similar to true Ice Cream and can fill a similar social or dietary role while not being based on the same ingredients".

On average, 80 percent of Asian and Native Americans are lactose intolerant

Is it ice cream or jam? Make up your mind!!!

Nothing will be as good as having all the Cream and Real Milk of True Ice Cream.
Give me Haagen Dazs or give me Dealth.

No, it's not. Yogurt is made with lactobacillus which digests lactose and leaves lactic acid as a byproduct. Lactose-free milk products use lactase enzyme which doesn't sour the milk. Breyer's has been making lactose-free vanilla for a while now, which has allowed me to enjoy bourbon milkshakes at home without the need for my wife to evacuate the house.

Lactase enzymes turn lactose, a form of sugar, into sugar proper. Hence the article mentioning that the new ice cream tastes a bit too sugary after being processed. It's the same thing if you'd buy lactose-free cow's milk.

I mostly drink almond milk though, mostly because it has a refrigerator's life of several months. Soy milk tastes terrible.

I wish that there was more love for completely dairy-free "ice cream" products. As someone with a milk allergy (I'll either get a rash/hive reaction and/or hork my guts out like an anorexic prom queen), I can't have any of the fun stuff. There are a few stores in the area that have some limited non-dairy products, but many of those include almond products... which I'm also allergic to.

Tofutti's isn't too bad, depending on what type you get. Purely Decadent isn't bad in a pinch either, but it's not always easy to find. If I want to find anything with any regularity, I usually have to drive to the hippie/vegan/hipster supermarket. Most of the workers there are nice, but the other customers... there's usually a pretty thick level of smug in there.

Man am I glad I am lactose tolerant.  I've tasted lactose free dairy products and holy fark are they awful.
I thank my various northern European ancestors heartily for my wonderful, wonderful lactase enzymes.
 
2013-11-01 02:05:50 PM
I thought they already removed milk from most ice creams in your supermarket freezer?  Take a look the next time, half of it is no longer labeled "ice cream" because it doesn't qualify.  It's all corn syrup and such, even some "trusted" national brands.

Sugar proper?

glucose + galactose = lactose

/I knew what you meant.

"Sugar Propper" is potentially a bit misleading.  Table sugar (Sucrose) is what we typically associate with being sugar, but others like Maltose, Dextrose/Glucose and Fructose are just as valid as sugars in this context.  It's just that the Lactose has been converted into one of the other ones that people don't have as common of an inability to properly absorb.  Nothing in TFA specifies Sucrose, just that it's not Lactose anymore.

I thought I was lactose intolerant based on physiological symptoms that matched with the ones that present from being lactose intolerant, then I found out that it wasn't the lactose, it was the Vitamin A Palmitate they add to 2%, 1% and Skim.(Also to some Vit D milks that are built off of Skim milk and add milk fat back in)I avoid Vitamin A Palmitate and I drink all the milk I want these days with no problems.

Came here to be all like:

images.encyclopediadramatica.es

...fguring that this was made with soy or some nonsense like that.  On the theory that "soy milk" isn't, it's soy juice.

But much to my surprise this stuff actually still comes from cows, so:

2.bp.blogspot.com

They just add some enzymes or something to change sugar A to sugar B so that people don't get the farts so bad, which is all good and undoubtedly cuts down on methane emissions.

That's what you think! Coconut milk is loaded with salicylates! And you KNOW what they do!?!?

The current formulation of original Silk soymilk is quite tolerable (imho).  You can cook with it as well.

I've been eating Breyers Lactose Free Ice Cream for years. It tastes better than most lactose laden brands.
 
2013-11-01 08:42:13 PM
Bryers product is neither lactose-free NOR is it iced cream.

It is a frozen dessert product and it made my ass bleed.  Do Not Eat It.

The Lactaid product is lactose free but a wee bit stiff.

I eat it a few times a year and it isn't too bad, and I appreciate that it doesn't destroy my digestive system the way regular ice-cream does (which is a damn shame given how much I love the stuff but can never eat it without unpleasant consequences for me and those around me).

I don't know what you ate, but Bryers is 99% lactose free. http://www.breyers.com/product/detail/113856/lactose-free-vanilla
