The Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), that markets milk and dairy products under the brand Amul, launched “Haldi ice cream” on Saturday and claimed it contains turmeric known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Haldi ice cream, which is being sold in tamper-proof 125 ml cups for Rs 40 each, also has pepper, honey and dry fruits such as dates, almond and cashews, stated an official release in Ahmedabad. 

Managing director of GCMMF, RS Sodhi told The Indian Express that the newly-launched Haldi ice cream has 0.8 percent turmeric, 0.25 percent black pepper, 5.5 percent dates, two percent each of almond and cashews and 6.2 percent of “honey ripple syrup.”
