The Glowing Ice Cream

Ice cream is a favorite food of many people. Cold and tasty food that has a variety of flavors, from vanilla, chocolate cookie crumbs sprinkled, fruits, until almonds. Those who are getting bored, might need to try this one: ice cream that can glow in the dark when licked.

This ice cream is made ​​in Lick Me I'm Delicious, an ice cream company from the UK. They insert a jellyfish protein that is known as a creature with the ability to emit its own light.

"We use specific protein from jellyfish that reacts with the calcium in the conditions of normal acidity (pH). As a result, proteins that fluoresce when exposed to the protein," said Harry Francis, owner of Lick Me I'm Delicious, earlier this week, as written on its website. So the protein reacts to the tongue's neutral pH.

Tongue warms the protein in ice cream, increase the pH and produce light. He admitted working with a company to synthesize protein extracts from jellyfish. Interestingly, the ice cream is not just glow in the dark, but also the more luminous when licked. Not yet known what flavors will be included by Francis in the ice cream which can be glow. But he guarantees safe homemade product. "Well I tried some and I don't seem to be glowing anywhere," he said.

Francis was known to put some pretty strange taste in his ice cream recipes, such as roast beef and cheese flavor. He produced the glow ice cream in a limited number. People who want to taste it must pay U.S. $ 225 or approximately Rp. 2.5 million for an ice cream dipper.

But Francis also makes non-jellyfish version of ice cream using quinine, a sort of tonic that glow when ultraviolet light is highlighted. For this one, it feels like gin and tonic sorbet. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LICK ME I'M DELICIOUS | LIVESCIENCE | GABRIEL T1TIYOGA | KORAN TEMPO 4396]
