Ice cream that doesnt melt
Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Linda Rodriguez McRobbie June 30, 2018 The earliest recipe book devoted entirely to making ice cream was “L’Art de bien faire les glaces d’office,” published in 1768 by a mysterious Monsieur Emy. The illustration on the frontispiece depicts roughly how ice cream was made at the time: By industrious flocks of chubby, naked cherubs with tiny wings, while the Holy Trinity — God and Jesus, languidly reposing in the clouds and flanking a rather startled dove — look down from the heavens.That wasn’t exactly how it really went, but ice cream in 1768 might as well have been made by angels, so exciting and novel was the experience of eating it and so closely-guarded the process of making it.“If you knew how to make ices, you had a meal ticket for life, and you would lock the door of your confectionery so nobody knew how you did … [Read more...] about How ice cream made America
YOU might soon be able to say sayonara to licking drips of melted ice cream from your wrists when your 99 disintegrates in the non-existent British summer. Japanese scientists have invented an iced dairy treat that won't melt (well, not for as long as it takes you to eat it, that is). It's all thanks to a strawberry extract which stops the oil and water found in the season's guiltiest pleasure from separating so quickly. Japan's Biotherapy Development Research Centre in Kanazawa city wanted to test how strawberry polyphenol affected deserts. They roped in a pastry chef to try and include it in a sweet treet, but he reported that it caused the dish to freeze. It was then they realised they had struck creamy gold. Tomihisa Ota, a professor emeritus of pharmacy at Kanazawa University, who developed the lollies said: "Polyphenol liquid has properties to make it difficult for water and oil to separate, so a popsicle containing it will be able to retain the original shape of … [Read more...] about Japanese scientists create incredible ice cream that won’t melt – but the sight of it might just turn your stomach
By Jolene Thym, correspondent | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: June 3, 2018 at 7:00 am | UPDATED: June 3, 2018 at 7:14 am One scoop of ice cream is nice, and two in a cone is a treat. Stepping on the scale after a pint of all that milky, silky goodness? Not so great. At 1,000+ calories, ice cream by the pint is a dietary debacle, unless it happens to be “skinny ice cream.” This new category crowding supermarket freezer sections is guilt-free, gourmet ice cream so low in calories that eating an entire carton is reasonable — even encouraged on the label. Weighing in at 250-600 calories a pint, these new skinny ice creams leverage food science in a major way. They incorporate texture from things like tapioca, corn fiber and whey, instead of cream, and grab sweetness from monk fruit, stevia and sugar alcohols instead of cane sugar. The result is a landslide of tasty, creamy ice creams with few dietary consequences — if you find the right one for you. Here’s … [Read more...] about Taste-Off: Skinny ice cream ranked from best to OMG horrible
The frozen dessert is a tutti frutti of flavours including strawberries, pistachio almonds, banana, caramel and vanilla; all of which are all-natural ingredients. Photo: Estella Vega A Spanish scientist-turned-chef has come up with the world's first ever colour-changing ice cream. The secret 'recipe' is actually within us. Manuel Linares is no ordinary scientist. A qualified physician, engineer and mathematician, he started cooking classes as a way of combatting stress, he told online Spanish daily El Confidencial. He took his new passion to a level and completed an MA in ice cream making. That’s when he came up with his idea for an ice cream that changes colour as you lick it. “Everyone laughed, but as a physicist I know that there are various possibilities that might work and I was delighted when I managed to crack it and create an ice cream the changes colour,” Linares told the Science Recorder. Dubbed Xamaleon, the ice cream reacts to the acidic … [Read more...] about Made in Spain: ice cream that changes colour
