I wonder how popular it will be. My first thought was is it really organic, wouldn't the women have to have completely organic diets for them to be able to claim that? I don't know anyone who has a 100% organic diet.
I don't know if I'd try it though, I've tasted my own milk many times but it would still feel a bit odd to try someone elses. I've also donated milk to a hospital milk bank which seems a better use than making icecream.
Two complaints and the council have confiscated the ice cream to make sure its safe. They say they are screening the donors and pasteurising the milk, assuming that's true (and I have no reason not to believe it) it should be safe. Milk banks use the same techniques and give the milk to the tiniest babies!
I guess if there aim was to get people talking they are achieving it.
Huh. Interesting. Can't say I'm too surprised. You can put BHA, BHT, nitrates, nitrites, my latest favourite azodicarbonamide (wiki it), etc. But breastmilk? NO WAY!
I think it depends on how you define vegan. If you don't think it is exploiting the human animal that produces it, then I could see a vegan eating it. But maybe you'd want the mother to have a vegan diet, or there would be issues with it because of feeling like it was taking breastmilk from children, or something.
