There IS a vegan substitute for ice cream already. It's called sorbet. And it's damn easy to make at home, but that's not going to get a patent is it?

When the seal is broken, nitrous oxide stored inside the packaging will activate and as it freezes tiny bubbles form in the mixture to create the texture.

Cool.
Doing whipits always make shiatty fake ice cream taste better.

Sorbet with Oxygen: The method for the production of sorbets from a fruit preparation (1), comprises mixing the fruit preparation under high positive pressure of 40 bar with oxygen (6), portioning the mixture into individual portions and then shock-freezing the mixture. The oxygen content in the frozen fruit preparation is 40%. A sweetener and vitamin A, C or E are mixed in the fruit preparation. The fruit preparation is prepared from strawberries, raspberries, Ribes, cherries, sour cherries and/or other fruits. An independent claim is included for a sorbet consisting of a fruit preparation.

But it appears to have been withdrawn.

Vegan ice cream is freakin terrible.

In college they had ice cream machines you could use anytime you want. I think everyone in the college accidentally grabbed the vegan ice cream since it didn't have a big label and looked just like vanilla. Then they would come back to their seat, have some and immediately spit it out because it tasted like ass.

Makes me think of the time I took what I though was vanilla yogurt from the cafeteria in college. "Oh cool, I love vanilla yogurt" I thought. I took one bite and thought something was horribly wrong, before I realized it was unflavored yogurt.

My local whole-foods-style shop sells a coconut based ice cream that I find generally better than regular.  Better, more interesting, flavors, and I like the texture more.  Not to say I don't like Blue Bell vanilla or Dutch Chocolate, just, the coconut stuff is great too.

So I have a hankering for ice cream, crack open a tin of this, shake it up and put it in the freezer for a few hours?

Or I walk/drive to the store in 30 minutes and get a pint or more with no problem?

Hmmm. Decisions.
 
2014-07-11 02:52:36 AM  
I recently bought an ice cream maker.  With it, my niece made a chocolate gelato that was so rich it needed to be cut with something less intense, like cocaine.  Next up is Jamaican Blue Mountain Espresso Gelato.

If anyone tried to serve me vegan ice cream substitute, I would hack their body into little pieces.

It sounds like an apt description of a cold cardboard box.

Also, what is the driving force for creating this product?  Is there a large population segment that is crying out for freezer-less ice cream?  Why would I want/need this product?

From TFA:

"Here's how Frisson works: Open the lid to let some air in, give it a shake and put it in the freezer. In a couple of hours Frisson is ready to eat. When the seal is broken, nitrous oxide stored inside the packaging will activate..."


From the EPA:

Nitrous oxide gives rise to nitric oxide on reaction with oxygen atoms, and this NO in turn reacts with ozone. As a result, it is the main naturally occurring regulator of stratospheric ozone. It is also a major greenhouse gas and air pollutant. Considered over a 100-year period, it has 298 times more impact per unit mass (global warming potential) than carbon dioxide.


But hey, it's vegan, so we're cool right?

The next paragraph of TFA:

"We've used a complex combination of different ingredients in our product, so that when you freeze it, it will not just become a block of ice,"

I'd bet that the refrigerants in the freezers, and the pollution used in powering those freezers, is way more damaging to the environment than the the pittance of nitrous oxide released when this bullshiat vegan gimmick product is opened.

Don't be hating on nitrous oxide.

Right, but you still need the freezer:

Sorbet doesn't have milk products--or at least if you're doing anything vaguely traditional, you don't--but you can certainly do vegan sherbets. Why you'd go for a sherbet, I don't know, when you can just freeze fruit, plop it through a food processor, with some honey and liqueur, and then freeze or serve immediately, I don't know. Sherbet is the Vanilla Ice of frozen treats in my opinion, at least in this country. Sorbet? Endless permutations, all too easy to make at home, and hard to screw up.

Apollo 7 was the only space mission where the astronauts actually had freeze dried ice cream.

It's semi-permiable. It's not osmotic. What it does is it coats and seals the flake, prevents the milk from penetrating it."
 
2014-07-11 09:39:28 AM  
I make this by mixing heavy cream, sugar, and ice-nine. Just don't lick it!

When I was a kid in East Texas, they still sold this shiat called Mellorine. It was the 50s, and some people were still able to tolerate because they got used to it during the war. It was based on cottonseed oil, and it didn't really....melt. If allowed to warm to room temp, it would just morph into this weird foam, and hold it's shape. It was nasty.
I undertsand that they still eat it a few places. Yuck.
