How come the first ingredient in ice cream is milk. Second ingredient is cream. Sounds like it should be called ice milk.
After searching numerous grocery stores, I finally found an ice cream where the first ingredient was cream. The brand is Organic Boulder Ice Cream. The ingredients are like every other ice cream except for the word organic in front of every ingredient. And for this Boulder Ice Cream, cream is the first ingredient. How unusual.
The ingredients of Organic Vanilla Boulder Ice Cream: organic cream, organic milk, organic cane sugar, organic eggs, organic vanilla, organic guar gum, and organic carob bean gum.
What's the difference when cream is the first ingredient rather than the second. It's about fat calories. Per the nutrition label of the Organic Boulder Vanilla Ice Cream for a 1/2 cup of ice cream, there are 214 calories of which 136 are from fat.
From the web site for Breyers ice cream the French Vanilla Ice Cream where cream is the second ingredient, there are 140 calories for a 1/2 cup -- half of which are fat calories.
For either brand, stick with a 1/2 cup of ice cream and life is good.
