You’ll Never Guess What Ingredient Is In Vanilla Ice Cream

I don’t know if I should share this but, the other day I was reading one of my favorite books, Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader, the book has great facts and stories.

The other day I came across the story about some of the ingredients you find in everyday foods.  One of those things that stood out to me was what is used by some companies to enhance the flavor of vanilla ice cream, believe it or not they use a product called castoreum, castoreum is a mixture of anal secretions and urine of beavers!

What?  Now the FDA-approved product is labeled as “natural flavoring” so you don’t know you are eating it.  Would you buy a product if you knew you were eating something secreted from a beaver?  Probably not!

I love food, but I think it’s better not to know what’s in there sometimes.  Think about it long ago someone decided it would be a good idea to eat an egg, the thing that just dropped out of a chickens backside.

I’m sure there is other stuff in food products that I don’t want to know about, I also heard that there is a certain number of bugs allowed in each jar of peanut butter, I know that but I shrug my shoulders and eat it anyway.  If you want to take a look at some other stuff you may find in your food, just take a look here.
