Healthy Treats: We All Scream for Ice Cream

Breyers Ice CreamIce cream is a favorite treat for kids of all ages. When my kids were small I chose Breyer’s vanilla most often because it had the fewest ingredients and I could pronounce and understand them all. But I had no idea that the milk itself was from cattle being administered Monsanto’s rBST growth hormone.

Even organic milk has BST, a hormone created by the cow’s pituitary gland. However, the Monsanto version uses a genetically engineered E.coli bacteria, which has been banned in numerous other countries, but not here for some reason.

It’s gratifying to see that Breyers has decided to stop using milk from cows treated with this artificial growth hormone meant to make the cattle produce at least an extra gallon of milk per day. Ben and Jerry’s already made this change years ago and in fact are in the process of going GMO free. Good for them!

Companies are beginning to listen and that makes me happy, although we should never have been in this position to begin with.

If you eat ice cream, what brand do you usually buy?

    Ann, that’s great information! Ice cream is taking a big hit here in Texas with our favorite Blue Bell being recalled. I have no idea about their hormones use. But all the Monsanto stuff is crazy! How did we get here and continue to fall in these lines? Sheesh. Thanks for giving me some great alternatives. 🙂

      I’m glad the information was helpful to you Erin. I have no idea how our country fell into this shameful condition regarding our food supply. It’s shameful and downright frightening! Thanks so much for reading and commenting.
