Let me start by stating this as clearly as I can:

ETHYLENE GLYCOL, THE ANTIFREEZE COMMONLY USED IN CARS, IS POISON!! DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, DRINK ANTIFREEZE!

There, are we all clear on that? Good.

A scientist in Wisconsin has developed an edible antifreeze that will prevent ice crystals from forming in that block of old ice cream you forgot about in the back of your freezer.

DO NOT PUT ANTIFREEZE IN YOUR ICE CREAM!

The edible antifreeze is made from a fruit enzyme that cuts proteins into smaller pieces and keeps them from freezing. It might also be used to protect meats from “freezer burn.”

DO NOT SOAK YOUR MEAT IN ANTIFREEZE!

We hope you have enjoyed our little discourse on the wonders of food processing.
