Ice Cream Additives

Briggs | May 31, 2005 06:19 PM

There's a thread on the LA Board about Dr. Bob's premium ice cream, and the addition of additives (guar gum, carageneen, etc). I personally feel that the addition of these, whether artificial or not, really affects taste and is pretty much a bogus thing to do when an ice cream is advertised as being "premium". Since Haagan-Daz, Breyers & McConnels don't use these extra ingredients (at least in their basic flavors), I don't understand the reasoning behind artisanal brands like Dr. Bob doing so. Especially at the premium prices they charge.

Thoughts?
