Ben and Jerry's: Make an ice cream flavor without carrageenan

  • by: Traci Newcomb

I love Ben and Jerrys but, I don't like carrageenan. So please make an ice cream flavor without carrageenan. Carrageenan is a product derived from certain types of red algae, a seaweed. It is still an ongoing debate on whether or not it is harmful. It is thought that carrageenan is a cause of a range of cancers (especially gastrointestinal ones) and other illnesses like Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Even if it is safe there should still be a choice for those who refuse to eat it. So who better to take on that challenge than Ben and Jerry's?
