Please leave our ice cream as is. There is just something amazing about the mixture of Cow?s milk, cream, sugar, and vanilla or strawberry or whatever flavor, that makes a long day at work just melt away like the ice cream in my bowl. The industry has already been so diluted by artificial flavors and coagulants, there are only a few companies that still sell the simplistic recipe that I mentioned above. The addition of other milks will only simply add to the degradation of the ice cream market. If you have ever had cheeses made from different milks or just different milks, you know that the consistency will definitely change. I am not sure what this Milk Protein Concentrate or MPC is, but I know it doesn?t belong in my ice cream. Please refrain from removing these restrictions, it will make so many consumers like me just a little bit happier.

The parmesan issue could be easily solved by requiring that there be an indication on the packaging whether it is 10 month or 6 month aged cheese. This way the consumer can choose value over quality themselves.
