Other ingredients such as egg products;coloring etc may be also added. This mixture, called a mix, is pasteurized before freezing.Freezing involves rapid removal of heat while agitating vigorously to incorporate air, thusimparting the desirable smoothness and softness of the frozen product. The broad term frozen desserts refer to ice-cream and related products. Specific product includes ice-cream and its lower fat varieties, frozen custard, mellorine (vegetablefat frozen desserts), sherbet, water ice and frozen confections. Some of this dessert areserved in either the soft frozen or hard frozen form. The physical structure of ice-cream is complicated psychochemical system. There are three phase of system liquid, solid and gas. Air cells and air crystals are dispersedin a continuous liquid phase. The liquid phase also contains solidified fat, colloidal milk proteins, insoluble milk salts, and lactose crystals in some cases, colloidal stabilizers and sugar and soluble salts in solutions. Ice-cream is palatable, nutritious, healthful and relatively inexpensive food.

History of ice-cream Ice Cream is one of most spectacularly successful foods of the entire dairy based products. By contract, ice-cream has a short history. Ice-cream evolved from the cool winein mountain snow to hundreds of flavors that stock our grocery shelves. There are manytales surrounding the evolution of our countrys most popular desserts, Ice Cream. It islikely that Ice Cream was not invented, but rather came to be over years of similar efforts. The Chinese gourmets made the primary attempts to explore this revolutionaryfood for lessening the blazing heat of summer. It was Polo who consigned this invention toItaly (Europe) after this voyage to china in 1295. These experiments were carried out tomake novelties from ilk in France and gradually the whole Europe became addicted to IceCream. Before this invention reaches the Indian connoisseur, the human kind had witnessedtwo perilous world wars. The father of wholesale ice cream business, is the US, was Jacobfusel, a milk dealer of Baltimore, who began to manufacture ice cream in 1851. Ice Cream permeated the India soil 1942, when Quit India Movement hadrecently been launched. The establishment of Vadilal Soda Fountain, near teen darwajaAhmadabad, marked an indelible footstep in the sand of time.
