The 3 important ways of sugar in ice cream powder!

1. Sugar adds Sweetness to the ice cream

Levels of sweetness are measured against the sweetness of Sucrose and are referred to as Relative Sweetness. Sucrose has a relative sweetness of 100. And all other sugars have values relative to that.

Most ice cream is far too sweet. To the extent that you can’t taste any of the dairy flavors.  Just sugar. But by using different sugars, we can reduce the sweetness of our homemade ice cream to create much more interesting and less sickly flavor profiles.

2. Sugar adds body to the ice cream

Sugars are mostly solids. And solids will obviously add body to ice cream. This body gives the ice cream a firmness that resists the spoon and the tongue. Ice creams with lots of body start to get a bit chewy, which may or may not be desirable!

Sugar also help to reduce ice crystal size by absorbing water in the mixture, so it can’t move about freely to join and grow existing ice crystals. So by increasing the levels of sugar in the mixes we can also control coarseness in our ice creams


3. Sugar keeps the ice cream soft

Sugar helps by lowering the freezing point of water. Regular water freezes hard at 0 °C. But when we add sugar to water, the sugar causes the water to freeze at a temperature somewhere below that.

The conclusion is, sugar must contain in ice cream powder. there’s some replacement like using Stevia to replace sugar or using another form of sugar such as Sucrose, Honey, corn syrup, Lactose, etc.

Sugar is an essential component of ice cream. Rather than reduce it or remove it altogether, maybe we should try to embrace sugar and appreciate it for the great contribution it makes!

It adds sweetness, body, and softness. And our ice creams would be bland, thin, and icy hard without it!

Playing around with different sugars in different combinations enables us to take complete control over the texture and taste of our ice creams.
