Polysorbate 80: Don’t you love it when a food ingredient contains a number in it?  This is a nonionic surfactant and emulsifier often used in foods. Basically, it makes the ice cream smoother and provents premature melting. You know what else it’s used for? It’s also an excipient in certain European and Canadian influenza vaccines. In addition to all this goodness, Polysorbate 80 is said to be harmful to people suffering from Crohn’s disease. Why use Polysorbate 80 to make ice cream smoother when you can use real food ingredients and have it be its natural smooth self?
