The Science

Ice cream mix comprises three main ingredient categories: dairy, sweeteners, and additives. The dairy component consists of milk, cream, and non-fat milk solids. Sweetening agents are incorporated to enhance flavour. Additionally, stabilizers and emulsifiers are included to achieve the desired texture and mouthfeel. In the production of ice cream products, stabilizers and emulsifiers play crucial roles. These elements contribute to achieving the smooth body and texture of ice cream while enhancing its overall mouthfeel. Stabilizers function by decreasing the presence of free water in the ice cream mixture, thereby inhibiting ice crystal formation during storage and enhancing resistance to melting.


Milk powders provide consistent quality and composition, ensuring that each batch of ice cream has the same taste and texture. This consistency is crucial for commercial ice cream production. the addition of milk powders in ice cream production helps enhance the texture, consistency, and overall quality of the final product while offering practical benefits in terms of cost and convenience.

However, it's important to strike a balance, as excessive sugar content can result in a product that is overly soft.
