Ice creams are usually based on a mixture of vegetable oil or butter-fat, milk or whey powder, emulsifiers etc. Mix preparation is about creating this sweet, creamy base, to which flavours, colours and other ingredients can later be added.
Successful mix preparation requires knowledge of many different aspects of production, including freezing, handling, homogenization and pasteurization as well as an understanding of how these processes affect your ingredients.
Tetra Pak's dedicated ice cream experts combine knowledge of the chemical and physical parts of the process to support you in all areas of your mix preparation.
For example, when freezing the base mix, the consistency of the product is determined by the amount of frozen water in the mixture. The amount of water depends on other factors, such as the type and amount of sugar in the mixture. Our experts can help you adjust your mixture or tweak the process until you get the desired result.
