Here’s a shocker for ya – that London ice cream shop we posted about recently had all their breast milk ice cream taken away by the authorities. Apparently people didn’t look to kindly on a food made from bodily fluids and raised questions about its legality and/or safety. They are currently awaiting word from Britain’s Food Standards Agency.
The company has said that the milk was screened in line with blood donor requirements before being pasteurized and churned together with vanilla pods and lemon zest. The dish comes in a martini glass and sells for 14 pounds ($22.50) each.
The founder of the shop in question stated that “As far as we are aware there is no law prohibiting a business from selling breast milk ice cream.”
