The Icecreamists parlor introduced the "Baby Gaga" flavor Feb. 25. The flavor's creator told told AOL Weird News that the ice cream was as much food for thought as actual food.
"Some people are turned off by the idea, but, really, it raises the philosophical question: Is it better if we use milk from cows injected with hormones who are artificially induced with every few months, or human milk?" Matt O'Connor said.
The Westminster City Council confiscated the titillating ice cream because of two complaints from the public over whether a shop should be selling edibles made from other people's bodily fluids and is awaiting guidance from Britain's Food Standards Agency, according to The Associated Press.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with council policy.
The official said the ice cream, marketed as Baby Gaga and launched last week, is being tested with the full cooperation of The Icecreamists, the parlor marketing the dessert.
Although viruses, including hepatitis, can be passed on through breast milk, O'Connor insists all the human donors -- 15 in all -- went through the same health checks as those used by the National Health Service to screen blood donors.
In addition, all the milk is pasteurized before being mixed with cream from cows as well as Madagascan vanilla and lemon zest.
And while O'Connor is cooperating with the authorities, he points out that his product is not breaking any .
"As far as we are aware, there is no law prohibiting a business from selling breast milk ice cream," O'Connor said in a statement.
Until the frozen assets were frozen, O'Connor and crew were selling each serving of Baby Gaga for around $22 U.S., and he compared the experience -- and the price -- to that of gourmet .
"What's the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash?" Hiley rhetorically asked the British newspaper Metro. "There's nothing more natural than fresh mother's milk."
Despite fears that Baby Gaga isn't safe, O'Connor believes it's actually more safe than ice cream made from cows.
"People who are lactose intolerant have tried it and had no problems with it," he said.
