University of Missouri Food Scientists Develop Nutrient-Rich Ice Cream

Health-Focused Ice Cream: Love It or Hate It?

Love ice cream? Here's the scoop on what's new: the frozen treat's about to get healthier. In what sounds like something out of a food fantasy, scientists at the University of Missouri are in the final stages of taste-testing what they're calling "multi-functional ice cream" — that is, ice cream with antioxidants, added dietary fiber, probiotics, and prebiotics. The product could be available as early as this Summer.

If it sounds too good to be true, I've always believed, it probably is — what kinds of chemicals are involved? Still, this is an interesting concept, and I'll be curious to see whether it takes off, especially in the era of vitamin-enriched gum and water. What do you think of the idea?

Overly-supplemented food makes eating too complicated. I'm in the keep food in it's natural state camp.

I'd be curious to try it, but am almost positive that sweet ice cream is the only way to go.
