Breast milk ice cream hits London streets
Edmonton Journal ^ | 22 Mar 2011 | Mia Stainsby

Posted on 03/22/2011 9:37:40 PM PDT by smokingfrog

It doesn't get more locavore than this. Ice cream made from human breast milk. Or what about mom's milk cheese?

It's the most natural of foods and yet, human breast milk is lumped in with bizarre and controversial foods, unless, of course, it's a suckling baby drinking it.

The latest human breast milk product is Baby Gaga ice cream, sold in London, England, in a shop called The Icecreamists. The restaurant buys milk from mamas to make into ice cream flavoured with vanilla and lemon zest that it serves in a martini glass for about $22.50.

"The Baby Gaga tastes creamy and rich. No one's done anything interesting with ice cream in the last 100 years," owner Matt O'Connor has said.

Is it the thin edge of a trend? It isn't the first human milk product to be sold to the public. Klee Brasserie, a fine dining restaurant in New York City, made limited amounts of breast milk cheese dishes while the owner's wife was lactating last year. The chef/owner served the cheese dredged in porcini powder; with figs and Hungarian pepper; and with maple caramelized pumpkin seeds and grapes.

The New York City health department didn't have specific rules on human breast milk products but they did ask the owner to stop selling or giving away the dishes. Co-owner Daniel Angerer said he got extreme reactions, both positive and negative.

Another New Yorker, Miriam Simun, made and served up breast milk cheeses as a university project. And here in Canada, a Toronto performance artist staged a piece called Lactation Station Breast Milk Bar with samples. The idea has backing from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). They've even urged Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream company to start replacing cow's milk with human breast milk.

I’m just not comfortable with this product. Maybe it’s because cows are cleaner?

With a choice of cup size, no doubt.

It will be called “Mum’s Yum”.

Apart from the ewww factor?

Probably because this represents commodifying human beings in the worst way.

PETA is beyond weird. They aren’t asking for humane treatment of animals; they are demanding that humans cease from any “use” of animals. This means animals for meat, fur, milk, burden carriers, or pets. Someone didn’t get the memo to the wild kingdom packed with predators and prey, to be sure, but consistency isn’t one of PETA’s strong points.

Anyhow, if public health laws require bovine milk offered for general sale to be screened or pasteurized (specialty raw milk aficionados aside), why not this stuff?

For some reason, this strikes me as weird, decadent, and just another sign that Western society is crumbling. Kind of a "Fall of Rome, Part II".

I can just hear the whining in 20 years:

"Man, I really HATE this whole Sharia thing. IT SUCKS."

“I don’t know why it bothers me, but it does.”

Perhaps because it’s a perversion regarding the innocence of the state of motherhood and the exploitation of it for the masses.

Milk meant to nuture a baby instead is hawked to adults who have become bored thrill seekers imagining themselves very avante garde.

An industry that would reduce women to cows.

bothers me because it takes what should be private and makes it public for profit. Socialism knows no bounds.

Exactly! I did try the extra sharp cheese they started selling here in my city. Tasted kind of watered down compared to the normal cheese I get.

No way... won’t consume this stuff.

Dairy farmers might learn to like it, if for no other reason, they will no longer have to hire anyone to clean out the barn.... the ladies can do it themselves.

Sorry ladies... I can’t help myself.

I love breasts, and I love milk. But for some reason the idea of ‘breast milk ice cream’ (or breast milk anything) grosses me out.

It is reducing women to an animal....a cow. It makes her body’s secretions into a commodity to be sold and profited from. It is why the church condemns the selling of human eggs, and sperm, etc.

It conditions little kids into equating a woman with a cow—just an animal with no intentional design by God. It removes breast milk from reproduction...much the same way the pill removed the sex act from reproduction. It is to make the most intimate details of human reproduction into something meaningless.

Cultural Marxism is all about destroying the dignity and worth of women and men—to destroy marriage....to create hate and division....to make it easier to redesign the godless chaotic society that it will become...and kill off the useless eaters. If they are just “trousered animals” as CS Lewis says, then they can be easily herded and killed and no one will even care...especially if all biological connections are severed.

It should bother you, because it is godless Marxist ideology.

Why not pasturize? Because humans in first world countries rarely have brucellosis or typhoid. ON the other hand it might be wise for donors to be tested for tuberculosis and have a general checkup.
