The consumption of soft ice cream is growing strongly in Spain and the rest of Europe. Soft ice creams are not a fad: they are here to stay! Many of the ice cream parlors and coffee shops that have incorporated this type of product into their offer, have found it to be a very successful product during the spring and summer season as well as all year round.
Soft ice cream was invented by a chemical research team in England, who discovered a method by doubling the amount of air in the ice cream. This allows manufacturers to use fewer real ingredients, reducing costs.
Soft ice cream usually has a lower fat content (3 to 6%) than normal ice cream (10 to 18%) and occurs at a temperature of about -4 ° C, while normal ice cream is stored at -15 ° C . Soft ice cream contains air, introduced at the time of freezing. The air content can vary from 0 to 60% of the total volume of the final product.
All ice cream, including soft ice cream, should be frozen quickly to avoid crystallization. With soft ice cream, this is achieved thanks to a special machine at the point of sale. The premixed product is introduced into the storage chamber of the machine, where it is maintained at + 3 ° C. When the product is served, the fresh mixture is combined with the desired amount of air by gravity or with the help of a pump. Then it beats and freezes quickly, stored until needed.
