A team from Nanyang Polytechnic has scooped the top prize at an international competition for its ice creams flavoured with Chinese herbs.

Six students from the polytechnic's chemical and life sciences school beat giants like Meiji to clinch the prize for best new ice cream at the International Dairy Federation's second Innovation Awards last month.

Another team from the polytechnic won the same prize from the Belgium-based federation last year, for a green tea and aloe vera-flavoured ice cream.

This year, more than 25 countries competed in categories including best new cheese, butter and school milk.

not neccesary. Green tea flavoured ice cream has been out for ages. it doesnt really taste bitter or bland. Some of them actually still tastes really sweet. The flavour does not equate to the sweetness ;) That depends on the sugar level.
