Fish in Your Ice Cream?
There's no better way to beat the summer heat than to enjoy a frozen treat. Recently, Health Canada approved ice structuring protein type III for use in ice cream, ice milk, and sherbet. Using this protein will enable finer control of ice crystal size and resulting texture in frozen products.

Ice structuring proteins are naturally occurring, and come from a variety of sources. The type III variety was originally isolated from Zoarces americanus, a type of fish that lives in the sub-freezing waters of Antarctica. Using biotechnology tools, the genes that code for this protein were identified and transferred to yeast for commercial-scale production of the protein. It's one of hundreds of processing aids that food biotechnology has made available to food processors.

The next time you take a delicious lick from a creamy ice cream cone, think about the fish you have to thank for it!
