Types of ice creams

Ice cream:-  it is a frozen dessert made from dairy products like milk and cream, combined with flavourings and sweeteners, such as sugar. The all ingredients are stirred slowly while cooling to prevent the forming large ice crystals, in result a smooth textured ice cream we get. These ingredients, along with air incorporated during the stirring process (technically call overrun), make up ice cream.
Ice cream comes in a wide variety of flavours, often with additives such as chocolate flakes or chips, ribbons of sauce such as caramel or chocolate, nuts, fruits and small candles/sweets. Some of the most popular ice-cream flavours are chocolate strawberry, vanilla, butterscotch and Neapolitan(combination of three flavor).

Ice cream is generally served as a chilled product. It may also be found in dishes where the coldness of the ice cream is used as a temperature contrast, for example, as a topping on warm desserts, or even in fried ice cream.



 Ice cream generally has between 11% & 15% butterfat and 60% to 90% overrun, which is the air that is pumped into the ice-cream. This creates a heavier, creamier in texture , richer in taste, denser and more caloric product than regular ice-cream, and is reflected in the price.
Superpremium ice cream has even more butterfat greater than 14%, with some heavy up to 18% and more and less overrun from as low as 20 % up to 80%.


Regular ice-cream contains from 10% to 11% butterfat and more air, 90 % to 100% overrun. It is less dense. It is usually sold in the more standard flavour, since the addition of ingredients of fancy flavours add to the cost escalation. Some people prefer the texture and lesser the degree of richness, and prefer it in milkshakes.
