Baby Gaga Breast Milk Ice Cream Is A Hit In London. Anyone looking for an ice cream treat in London, has more options now… Ice cream made with mother’s breast milk. The Icecreamists Shop has made headlines for using milk from as many as 15 women to make its new “Baby Gaga” flavor. It was such a hit with customers at their Covent Garden Store sold out within the first few days. One serving of “Baby Gaga” ice cream, which comes in vanilla and lemon zest flavor, goes for about $22.50. So where did that milk come from? They found all the women on the Internet. Several mothers answered the internet advertisement willing to give up their babies milk to create this new sweet dessert. The Icecreamists say all the milk “was screened in line with hospital/blood donor requirements.”
There’s plenty of people that stand behind this ice cream saying that it is pure, natural, organic, and best of all free range. They figure if it’s good enough for the kids, it’s good enough to use in the ice cream. Even a Barista at a Starbucks franchise was recently caught putting breast milk in customers lattes. However, the United States FDA is not as convinced when it comes to using “donor human milk.” They explain on their website, “Risks for the baby include exposure to infectious diseases including HIV, chemical contaminants such as some illegal drugs, and a number of prescription drugs that might be in the human milk, if the donor has not been adequately screened. In addition, if human milk is not handled and stored properly, it could, like any type of milk, become contaminated and unsafe to drink. Still, the FDA isn’t completely against sharing breast milk. It points people to the Human Milk Banking Association of North America as a good source of information.
