Just read that an ice cream parlour in London is launching a new flavour of gelato - human breast milk!
I'm a bit gobsmacked by this one (it's called Baby Gaga if you want to order it) - preferring your standard rum & raisin or vanilla & choc in fact the most exotic I've ever gone is cherry or boysenberry! I'm bemused to think who may select such a flavour - men who missed out the first time around? What do you all think? Drool

I WANT! I never tried it. I never sucked on my mother's nippy. It's about time that I experience it, if only there is a store like that here. But the fact that the woman who produced it is random, makes my stomach churn...
What is she eating? is she healthy? is her genes good? ( not that I know what kind of nutrients it gives...)

Excaelis - you summed it up for me - ewww but each to their own, altho' I'm sure your Mum's nutritional input worked ok as you seem to do alright!To answer everyone else I've got more info:
Srirr and Casper it costs $23 Aussie dollars (about ten quid I think if my memory serves me correctly) per cone from Icecreamists in Covent Garden, London. 15 women supply the main ingredient (!) they answered an ad on a Mother's forum (a bit different to our forum obviously!). One of the contributors had this to say "It's a recession beater...what's the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash?...I tried the product for the first time today (not sure if it was her own product?!)...it's very nice it really melts in the mouth". Alias apparently it's endorsed by the authorities as it's a natural product!
Well there you have it! Whistle

I believe I'm naive most of the time. Why don't you put some breast milk next time for your cornflakes.. according to deebee

I read about it today too. Gross.
By the way Alias, are you not concerned about causing offence at calling The UK a backward country?
Because I took offence to that.

Casper - Just want to clarify it wasn't me who said it was very nice and that it melted in the mouth (doesn't all ice cream anyway?), I was quoting one of the "suppliers"! I'm guessing that this flavour probably won't take off judging by the feedback! Tyson don't worry about Alias calling the UK a backward country, I'm an ex-pom and I'm guessing that Alias' tongue was firmly in his cheek (certainly not in some ice cream anyway) when he made the comment - that or he's cheesed off at the Ashes result!!!

Um! are you being subtle JJ ?Think
Unfortunately the milk we get from cows is only 'cows milk', because when they give birth,the calves are removed immediately. Those required to replenish the herd go on to 'calfeterias',[a large container with rubber teats around it]. The 'unwanted' calves get picked up and taken to the abattoir where they are processed to provide veal. The dairy cow does not get to be a mother and raise a calf, unless, she is not up to production standards, and, then she has 4 or more calves 'mothered' onto her. Even then it is only until those 4 are weaned onto meal, she then gets another 4 calves, and so on. I would hate to be a dairy farmer, too mechanical for my tastes.
I always kept a house cow on the farm and we went shares with the calf. He/she was put in the yard at 6.30pm. Mum was out all night and I would milk her at 6am, and then the calf spent the next 12 hours with mum. I thought that was a fair arrangement.
If you ask todays kids, in the towns, where milk comes from, the answer is invariably, a carton or bottle, sad.

You cannot be called a cannibal for drinking milk. Cannibals eat 'flesh'. The people of Melanesia ate other people because there was no other source of red meat. The name given to human meat was 'long pig'.

Cannibal;
1. a. a person who eats the flesh of other human beings

2. an animal that feeds on the flesh of others of its kind

Now that lucid explanation by Ray makes me think something else. I don't know about the global practice, but in many parts of India, milkmen use medicines and injections to cows to get more milk. Sometimes the cow which has not delivered a calf is also injected and milked.

Is it possible for human breast-milk icecream producers to apply similar techniques for more productivity?

d'oh!
Oh, I know all that Ray!

I used the ratio symbols as

Cannibalism is related to human-breast milk consumption in the same way as carnivorism is related to cow breast-milk consumption.

I would similarly use:

shamelessness : porn stars :: unrighteousness : robbers

srirr, the process of milk production is kicked off by the hormonal changes brought about during the birth,[roughly speaking]. I see no reason why hormone injections would not cause some similar reaction. I have seen animals that have previously had offspring, reared them, and on weaning had there milk supply dry up, spontaneously start producing milk when introduced, in the case of a mare, to an orphan foal.
Clover is rich in hormones, and in a 'good clover year' I have seen wethers[castrated male sheep] oozing milk out of their nipples while being shorn.
It is not all that long ago when 'wet nurses' were in demand. If the woman who gave birth had no milk, then a women who had milk [wet nurse] would feed the baby. In theory, as long as the demand on the milk was maintained, she would not 'dry up'.
Well off people also used wet nurses so as to not 'inconvenience' the natural mother. This, of course was the days before powdered infant formula.

Exactly. In India too, wet nurses (called Dhay Mata in Hindi) have been a part of society from ancient times. There are numerous examples. These wet nurses are given equal respect and importance as biological mother. Also, the initiation of lactation in mammals is well understood.

I was wondering if this human breast milk product is well accepted by consumers, the market pundits will definitely look for more productivity and more input. On a serious note, the unmarried/unpregnant ladies and prostitutes may serve as suppliers without bothering about carrying a child.

Sterile/ immature cattle are dosed with diethylstilbesterol [DES] to induce lactation. It's now been proven to cause vaginal cancer.

In Australia we call places that serve ice cream and milkshakes the very original name of 'milk bars', [soda shop? in US]
Puts a whole new meaning on milk bars.Think

Yes ludic, too many chemicals used, and too many pay the ultimate price. All in the name of greed.
***********************************************************************************
srirr, I think to use human females for the production of milk for the open market would be the worst possible position they could be placed. Total degradation of women's rights if they were to be treated like cattle.I really don't think it will ever happen,it will attract too much controversy, and rightly so.

DeeBee and Tyson: I too am a ten pound tourist hailing from cloggy country.i.e. Oldham (Manchester).

Deebee was right, I was just being fascetious. However I dont salute flags or put my hand on my heart swearing allegiance to God and country. It is my contention that Jingoist notions of statehood cause far more trouble than good and are tools of the unscrupulous to manipulate people in to fighting useless wars. I know this is all a bit serious and way off topic but since you asked I thought I would extrapolate my response.

This is what Einstein said:
"NATIONALISM:
“Is an infantile sickness, it is the measles of the human race”

Milk Bar Humbug!
Aaah Ray I know East Coasters esp NSW and Vic think they are the centre of the known universe (laughs) but if you intend to speak for all of Oz..(the biggest bits included)..you might want to check in first.
Sowf Oz doesnt have a "milk bar" or even a "Milk Baah".(sells sheeps milk Angel ).
We have Delis...suitably truncated, as is the Ozzie tradition, from the original "Delicatessen".

next step what, a sperm flavoured ice cream? Sure it's all natural, in times of recession sources won't be scarce and it will probably sell well.
