"In ice cream–liquid particles of fat–called fat globules–are spread throughout a mixture of water, sugar and ice, along with air bubbles," writes Brian Rohrig for ChemMatters. The air bubbles are essential to giving ice cream its texture. In soft serve, writes Vanessa Farquharson for the National Post, "all that air leaves less room for dairy fat."
Mix Alarm, a mix alarm (also called a "Low mix alarm") is an alarmbeeper that lets you know when the product mix is running too low. It also automatically shuts down your compressor & dasher. This is extremely helpful because if your product runs low, it might freeze causing the blades & tubes in your machine to get damaged.
