    I think it's got something to do with whether egg yolks are used.

    Hello All,
    From what I've been told, true vanilla has black specks in it, and should be white.
    Take Care,

    Good question. So I asked the handsome and knowledgable Zman this, since he worked in the dairy business for many years. I thought the answer too was egg yolks........WRONG! The big manufacturers all use powdered egg. Apparently there could be a couple of varying factors, if real liquid vanilla was used (opposed to powdered)this could change the color, but the big reason is COLORING. MikeSh was right. Another interesting fact about ice cream is that it is injected with air in the freezer. This is called "overrun" and is done so the ice cream will not be so dense and also protects against ice crystals.
    There's your Ice Cream 101 lesson for today.

    Thanks for the lesson!

    I think the reason I was thinking egg yolks is because I saw on tv or read somewhere a while back that French Vanilla ice cream is yellowish because of the use of eggs. I think that's also the case for vanilla frozen custard. I guess not for regular vanilla though.

    Colors added to it as a flavor and changes colors of vanilla.Color that added to vanilla also influence the taste of ice-cream.Such as Blueberries are a natural source of color, and they can turn an ordinary bowl of vanilla ice cream into a taste-tempting treat.

    Of the Commercial Brands, I like Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla, (Cream color) and Blue Bell Vanilla Bean, (White in color) the BEST!
    There's all kinds of Recipes out there for Homemade Ice Cream but I like Alton Brown's the best. And it comes out white.
    Serious Vanilla Ice Cream
    Recipe courtesy Alton Brown
    Prep Time: 10 hr 0 min
    Cook Time: 1 hr 0 min
    Makes 1 quart 
    Ingredients
    2 cups half-and-half
    1 cup whipping cream
    1 cup minus 2 tablespoons sugar
    2 tablespoons peach preserves (not jelly)
    1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
    Directions
    Combine all ingredients (including the bean and its pulp) in a large saucepan and place over medium heat.
    Attach a frying or candy thermometer to inside of pan. (See note below)
    Stirring occasionally, bring the mixture to 170 degrees F.
    Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
    Remove the hull of the vanilla bean, pour mixture into lidded container.
    Refrigerate mixture overnight to mellow flavors and texture.
    Freeze mixture in ice cream freezer according to unit's instructions.
    The mixture will not freeze hard in the machine.
    Once the volume has increased by 1/2 to 3/4 times, and reached a soft serve consistency, spoon the mixture back into a lidded container and harden in the freezer at least 1 hour before serving.
    NOTE: If you do not have a thermometer, bring the mixture just barely to a simmer.
    As soon as you see a bubble hit the surface, remove it from the heat.
    Do not let it boil.

    Kirkland vanilla at Costco is superb.....Heavy butter fat and nice strong vanilla taste. Sold as Two half gallons...the best I've bought!!!!! Since it's so heavy...one scoop lasts much longer than airy commercial ice creams like Bryers and such.

    In a recent Cook's Illustrated vanilla ice cream review, Wholefoods "365" brand was rated the best vanilla ice cream of all major ice cream brands.

    Due to coloring, it;s color become white, yellow or any other. If you want to make choco ice cream then add choco powder.
