Ice Cream Equipment / June 22, 2018 / Gwendolyn Shin
Frozen Yogurt (or Froyo). More tart in flavor. Made with milk rather than cream, which lowers fat content. Contains active cultures which can help with digestive health. Sorbet. Low in calories and fat. Made by blending and freezing sweetened water with fruit puree. Dairy-free.
A fixed paddle scrapes the sides as the canister turns, and in 20 to 30 minutes, the ice cream is frozen (though still soft). It’s the same principle behind the old-fashioned machines, except that, instead of using salt and ice to keep the canister cold, most modern machines use a double-walled canister with a chemical coolant sealed inside.
