Question from Savannah:

I love ice cream. I’m always thirsty after eating it. why?

My Answer:

Ice cream is awesome Savannah, but i know what you mean! I will drink water while I ate ice cream because of the thirsty feeling I get. There are a few of reasons why this may be happening. Ice cream is highly sugary. Your body may be calling for water to help flush all of that extra sugar you just ingested out of your body. The cone that the ice cream is usually sitting on has salt in the ingredients. Which makes a tasty collaboration of salt and sugar but inspires thirst. the last reason would probably be the butterfat in the ice cream. Butterfat tends to coat you tongue and throat with an uncomfortable film. Drinking water helps to rinse that film away. It feels good to strip that film out of there!
