Walmart’s ‘Ice Cream’ Won’t Melt After 12 Hours In Sun - Video http://b4in.org/iEXS
In another bizarre food experiment showcasing the many abnormal traits of modern processed food, a Walmart-brand ice cream sandwich survived for 12 hours in the sun without melting at all.
This led Christie Watson, a suburban Cincinnati mother of two, to replicate the experiment to see if what she was seeing was in fact real, comparing different ice cream brands. Not surprisingly, the Walmart brand still kept its form, while other more expensive ice cream brands melted at least partially, if not completely.
Walmart responded quickly to protect itself from public ridicule, claming that the lack of melting was due to the heavy cream content of their ice-cream sandwich. However, Sean O’Keefe, a professor and food chemist at Virginia Tech, gave a different answer, explaining that more cream-content should see ice cream melting faster.
As expected, the reason for this bizarre outcome revolves around processed ingredients used to make the sandwich. Various thickeners and food stabilizers such as guar and cellulose gum, carrageenan, and more are the reason the ice cream didn’t melt.
While food manufacturers state many processed food ingredients are safe, research says otherwise. Many chemical preservatives have been linked to cancer, allergic reactions, and more.
In numerous animal studies carrageenan has been found to cause gastrointestinal issues and inflammation, and cancer. In addition, diets high in carrageenan have been linked to the development of intestinal ulcers and other digestive issues.
The Cornucopia Institute (a nonprofit which supports food research and “justice for family scale farming”) recommends anyone with inflammatory digestive issues like chronic diarrhea, IBS, or inflammatory bowel disease, to eliminate carrageenan from their diet altogether.
