Sharing these facts on ice cream with my family has been fun for me. It seems my younger kids are more interested in my findings than the older ones. Although they all share a love for ice cream, not all are enthusiastic about listening to me go on and on about what I've learned. So, I guess I will share it with those of you who can appreciate it.
Udderly Fun Facts About Ice Cream
An average dairy cow can produce enough milk in her lifetime to make a little over 9,000 gallons of ice cream.
A cow has only 1 stomach with 4 areas where food is digested: the rumen, reticulum, omasum, and the abdomen.
The udder of a cow can hold between 25-50 lbs. of milk. (OUCH!)
The Milkfat Matters
In the U.S., all ice cream needs to have a minimum of 10% milkfat if it is to be labeled "ice cream". This includes custard based (French Style) ice creams.
