Ice Cream Stabilizers
Usually Common stabilizers used in ice cream, such as guar gum, carob bean gum and cellulose gum, Its function to reduce the degree of ice crystal growth by influencing viscosity and rheological properties, thus limiting the mobility of water in the unfrozen aqueous portion. This effect increases when the influence of freeze concentration further enhances the effects of stabilizers on viscosity.
At a point referred to as the “break point,” the degree of concentration can cause stabilizer and, possibly, other water-soluble compounds, to interact with each other, sometimes irreversibly, thus markedly increasing the effect on water mobility. It is also conceivable that this phenomenon combined with the extreme freeze concentration that occurs at low frozen storage temperatures can produce other interactions between individual water-soluble compounds.
Ice crystal growth
Control of ice crystal growth by stabilizers is related to influencing the mechanism of recrystallization during heat shock. Stabilizer functionality also controls ice crystal growth by managing ripening that occurs during early stages of hardening and situations during storage and distribution, when the product is exposed to relatively high temperatures (e.g. +10 to +18 F). In this range, the degree of freeze concentration is low, producing relatively low viscosity in the unfrozen portion. This low viscosity allows for water to migrate from small to large ice crystals, increasing the average ice crystal size. Nevertheless, the influence of stabilizers on water mobility can have a useful effect on minimizing this ripening effect at any level of freeze concentration. A similar phenomenon occurs with regard to the control of the size of air bubbles, which can grow through the process of disproportionation.
Thus, the rheological effects of stabilizers are particularly important in stabilizing many desirable properties of the finished ice cream related to the mobility of water in the unfrozen system.
High viscosity can limit the temperature at which ice cream can be withdrawn and handled from the barrel of the ice cream freezer. When this happens, the amount of water frozen in the freezer is reduced. This has undesirable effects on the resistance of the ice cream to heat shock. Low-viscosity gums may have more functionality in ice cream than previously thought. Low-viscosity stabilizers have not traditionally been used in ice cream because of an assumed lack of influence on water mobility.
The stabilizers evolution
Some 40 years ago, as higher-than-normal levels of low DE corn syrups were used to balance the freezing point depression of newly developed high-fructose corn syrups, surprising resistance to heat shock resulted.
Twenty years ago, hydrolyzed, low-viscosity guar gum was found to control ice crystal growth comparable to conventional, high-viscosity guar while maintaining desirable sensory properties. More recently, low-viscosity gum acacia has been used.
It is possible that low-viscosity carbohydrates with high molecular weights and more complex structures can contribute useful stabilizer-like functionality because of irreversible phenomena as a result of extreme freeze concentration that occurs at very low temperatures. Such effects might provide significant advantages over high-viscosity stabilizer systems, including:
⇒ Economies related to the cost of heat transfer and mix transport.
⇒ Facilitating the achievement of lower draw temperatures (not inherently due to freezing point depression) and the resulting positive effect on having more and smaller ice crystals formed in the barrel of the freezer.
⇒ Colder draw temperatures could also enhance beneficial effects of fat agglomeration.
⇒ Possible tolerance to the freezing point depression effect of low molecular weight sweeteners.
⇒ Allowing for mix compositions/mix densities that inherently allow for significant yield improvements via added tolerance to slightly higher overruns.
⇒ Potential ingredient cost reductions from partial replacement of other mix ingredients.
The functionality of traditional high-viscosity gums and other ingredients will continue to be relevant, and will be difficult to replace in products such as soft serve, direct draw shakes, water ices and sorbets.
As always, form and function meet to deliver ultimate sensory appeal.
Ice Cream Stabilizer & Emulsifier
Ice Cream Stabilizer & Emulsifier is a blend of stabilizers & emulsifiers for apply in any properly balanced ice cream formulation and is planned to give best possible results over a large range of ice-cream plants. It ensures that the touch of the ice-cream remains excellent & soft until served.
Stabilizers in Ice Cream
The majority profitable ice creams contain things like guar gum, locust bean gum, carrageenan, xanthan gum, polysorbate 80, monoglycerides, and diglycerides. What the heck are these scary-sounding things, and why are they in our ice cream?
In the ice cream industry, these are all famous as “stabilizers”, and they mostly assist with two things: dropping iciness, and extending shelf life. As for the part about extending shelf life, that’s particularly true when you take a pint of ice cream out of the freezer and put it back after a small amount of minutes. Every time it warms up a tiny and then re-freezes, it re-freezes at a much slower rate than when you churned it in your ice cream device. When you freeze it rapidly, you get lesser ice crystals that flavor smooth. But when it re-freezes gradually, you get bigger crystals. Ice Cream Stabilizers help with that re-freezing dilemma also.
Ice Cream Stabilizer which is an entire system of emulsifier stabilizer which is, consistent blends of guar gum and hydrocolloids as of seaweed and vegetable sources. Ice Cream Stabilizer is designed to give reliable mix viscosities more than a period of nonstop supply in arrange to minimize variation at user lever hereby saving the users precious time in adjusting sum of special ingredients for Stabilization & Emulsification.
As the Ice Cream Stabilizer contains excellent and high quality of ingredients, it increases the worth and mouth feels of the ice cream. It also enhances the taste and the feel of the ice cream.
The expansion of ice crystals throughout the processing and storage space of ice cream is one of the major challenged faced by ice cream manufacture the use of Ice Cream Stabilizers in an ice cream mix so as to manage free water.
