When we hear the term ice cream the mouth starts watering. Well what is an ice cream then? It is basically a frozen dessert made with cream.
To make it more delicious sweeteners and flavours are added to it. The mixture of cream and artificial substances is stirred in order to avoid the formation of large ice crystals.
Well we think that ice cream is made only from cream but some of them are made by carrageenan which nothing but a gum is found in seaweed so that it isn’t adhesive.
We talked about flavours and sweeteners. Well there are many different types of flavours.
Often flavours are produced by adding substances like chocolate chips, nuts, fruit, cookie dough, sweets, sauces or small candies. This is the basic introduction of ice cream.
But the topic is about ‘My favourite ice cream’ and the reader might think that the topic is being deviated from actual path. Well there are various aspects of an ice cream.
