Because who wants a bowl full of half-melted ice cream, honestly?

If it works, and is interestingly different to existing gelling agents, then great.

I think existing restaurant hot "ice cream" uses  http://msk-ingredients.com/GellanGumF-1181 or similar.

That, um, that should be "by" and not "my".

"By" bad ...

And what about floats, they'll be ruined!

If your ice cream melts before you finish eating it then you obviously don't like ice cream very much.

I kinda like letting ice cream warm up a little so it softens up to about the consistency of soft serve. Even then I've never had it completely melt though.

Letting it soften just enough to get some meltiness is one of the great joys of ice cream.  Soft over here, icy over there, perfect.

"Ice cream that does not melt" is not ice cream. Perhaps we should call it "substance that is marketed as 'ice cream that does not melt'" The reason it is not ice cream is that one of the characteristics of ice cream is it melts.

It doesn't melt? That seems kind of weird. Is it like pudding then? Like really fluffy pudding? I mean, on the one hand, it sounds good, but on the other hand, fluffy pudding is quite different from icecream. Just saying.

CSB

James Earl Jones was filming a movie in my hometown when I was a little kid and I went with my parents to watch. Some kids were in the scene with him eating ice cream cones and the ice cream kept melting and getting messy so they used mashed potatoes instead.

Ice cream that doesn't melt is never going to benefit the consumer. Just like how all out supermarket produce has been bred and picked before ripening just so it can survive the trip

Mousse is like fluffy pudding.

The key is a new ingredient: a naturally occurring protein, known as BsIA,

Cyanide occurs naturally but I don't want it in my food.

Ice cream should be made of cream, sugar, milk and natural flavor. Nothing else. That reminds me, fark you Breyers.

Ivo Shandor: WalMart already did it.


Time for me to put this in its proper thread:

"I remember saying to friends a year ago, when everyone freaked out over ice cream sandwiches that don't melt, that if someone other than Walmart had said "I have created ice cream that doesn't melt, because SCIENCE," the line to blow them would run around the block.

Well guess farking what?"

Seems like a better idea to make Popsicles not melt. At least that would save my crotch fruits clothes.
Plus, meltee ice cream is best ice cream!

If I was selling hamburger that never rots, would you buy it?

If I sold vegetables that never wilt, would you eat it?

If you like real food, you don't eat things that don't act like real food.

Processed foods delay spoilage. If I throw enough chemicals into meat, it won't rot. I'm sure someone could make a biatchen burger out of that garbage. It would taste fine, I guess.

I do prefer Europe's version of the USDA. Words mean something. Calling suspended starch gel with flavoring "ice cream" is lies.

Came here to say that ...I figured ice that doesn't melt, is not ice, unless chemically modified to freeze higher than 32 degrees. Maybe 41 degrees?? but not necessarily.

If you don't eat melted ice cream then you have some damned boring breakfast cereal.

Oddly enough, if you cook something well enough that any bacteria in it die, then add a bunch of salt, it won't rot.  No bacteria and nothing gets a foothold because the salt kills it.

Preventing spoilage is rather why salt used to be worth its weight in gold.

What is "real" food, then?
I like food, but I also don't see any value in adhering to anyone's poorly conceived, arbitrary definition of what "real" or "natural" food is.
I find that most people who concern themselves with that idea haven't actually thought very hard or deeply about what it actually means, or what value the notion has.
