What is ice cream made of?
The typical traditional ice cream is made of 5 parts:
Milk: Base and filler for volume.
Heavy Cream: Fats for creaminess, typically 10-16% Milk Fats, High Fat content = Creamier texture.
Eggs and Stabilizers: Prevent Ice crystals from the water contents.
Flavouring: Usually fruit purees, sugar syrup, glycerine etc.
Air: Commercially it’s called “overrun”, air is mixed while freezing to prevent ice cream from becoming an ice block, so even at -10 Degrees Celcius, you still could scoop it. Can’t do that with an ice block.
