Ice Cream Stabiliser & Improver, 100g


Ice cream stabiliser & improver is the secret to the perfect soft scoop. A mixture of agar agar and thickeners, this stabiliser is undetectable in flavour, but when incorporated into the ice cream mixture and frozen, it delays the ice crystal formation. This creates a thick and creamy texture with a velvety finish, which allows you to scoop with ease. It also delays melting and increases shelf life.

'My homemade ice cream used to be incredibly hard and difficult to scoop (and I tried all the tips and tricks to make it softer)... turns out all I was missing was this stabiliser! Just like magic, after a couple seconds out of the freezer my ice cream is not only easy to scoop but also incredibly glossy and the texture is much smoother'
